Liddabit Sweets, New York: Pretzel and Beer Caramel

Liddabit Sweets is all the rage here in New York City with their high-end hand-made caramels and candy bars created in unique and esoteric flavors. They were even featured in a limited edition Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream flavor (click here to read)! I arrived at Liddabit in a pique of excitement to sample all the flavors. Overall, the caramels are delicious. The beer and pretzel caramel, pictured above, features a beer infused caramel with small crunchy pretzel bits suspended throughout. It's good, but given the high price tag I don't think it matched my elevated expectations. The caramel, buttery and infused with a yeasty ale flavor, was a nice balance, and the pretzel crunch makes the whole thing taste more substantive. I would eat a lot of these special caramels if placed in front of me-but at $2/piece, one at a time will suffice for now. Thanks, Kara!
