A little background history: “In 1954, Mr Fauchille, director of the Delespaul-Havez company, and Mr. Galois an employee had a surplus of cocoa and decided to create a new, original recipe to use it up. The legend says that one of the machines in the factory was malfunctioning, making the long bars that still exists today. This sweet, in the form of a bar was christened Caram’bar.” (Wikipedia) –
Today , Carambars come in a variety of flavors from strawberry to tropical coconut, but my taste buds are faithful to the original gooey caramel!
