In case you woke up this morning wondering where is the best place in the county to get exquisite French caramel, I’m here to tell you: it’s El Cajon. Don’t look surprised. Only a few years ago, the answer would have been Santee. That’s where France natives Christen and Vincent Kugener originally opened their wholesale business, Le Caramel, ten years ago. Business has apparently been bon bon for the brand, whose caramel reportedly supplies large-scale manufacturers of ice cream, snacks, and dessert toppings. Le Caramel has grown into larger El Cajon digs, and for the past couple years offered a small retail component for those among us who enjoy getting our European candy from the source.
