McCrea's Candies

Hyde Park, Massachusetts
Kate and Jason McCrea fell in love while working as researchers on the Arctic Tundra, and after double layoffs, they began to cook up sweet treats for their neighbors and friends. The raves came rolling in, and before long, they were whipping up batch after batch in copper kettles, then feeding it all through a restored, early twentieth-century cutting and wrapping machine. They’re on a mission to make the world’s best caramel (and with those fresh-as-can-be ingredients, they just might have done it).

Disappointing
Unfortunately, I've been disappointed by a number of the flavors (for example, the coffee one tastes like just badly burned coffee). And the calendar itself is put together badly, with the vast majority of the caramels not actually in their little pockets under the windows. Even if they are in the correct spot, they're very difficult to get out. Wouldn't purchase again.

Lovely but a tad dissappointing
I bought 3 different kinds of advent calendars for gifting this year. I bought 3 of these and 1 of the licorice and 1 Charon. My in-laws love caramels and I thought this would be a fun gift for them. I love the colors and design and the caramel I have been told is very good. I just wish that there were several different kinds of caramels behind the doors instead of the same caramel. Part of the fun of the advent is the surprise of what you get, although the caramels are quite yummy there is absolutely no surprise with each day.

I thought I liked caramel
But apparently I don't. These are all indedible so far. At day five I'm ready to throw the rest of the box in the trash. It's not very well made either. Many of the caramels moved around. Each day does not have compartment separation.
