Everyone’s favorite sweet & savory flavour Salted Caramel is made from a heady mixture of sugar, salt and fat.  Caramel sweets are made by boiling sugar until it turns a light brown colour, then mixing in soft cream, butter, and vanilla essence. Salted caramel is made by sprinkling sea salt on top of the concoction. 

This intoxicating flavor is all the rage now and boy, Nairobians love salted caramel on their treats if those Instagram #hashtags are anything to go by. From chocolate, ice cream and milkshakes, to more adventurous creations such as coffee, tea and vodka, salted caramel features prominently as a flavour addition to our fave treats.
