Shotwell Candy CO

I was given products in this post for the purpose of review. All opinions are my own.
Welcome to the 2015 Simply Me Holiday Gift guide!  The holidays should be fun.  At times finding the perfect gift, great deals, decorating and recipes can be overwhelming.  The Simply Me Blog wants to put the fun back into the Holidays so over the next several weeks I will be posting great gifts for everyone, decorating tips, recipes and everything in-between!

I am a sucker for caramel!  It is one of those treats that you can never just eat one.  And a good piece of Caramel has the perfect texture and taste to make a scrumptious treat.  
Shotwell Candy offers just that!  Caramel that has the perfect texture and taste.

Oh but they don't stop at a simple piece of caramel that have added flavors to make several different types of caramel each with their own uniqueness
They offer:
The Original Salted Caramel
Bourbon &Maple Pecan Caramels
Craft Beer & Pretzels Caramels
Hand-Crushed Espresso Caramels
Old Fashion Cocktail
Southern Honey and Granola
Caribbean Coconut 
Five Spice Dark chocolate 
banana nut 
(Some of these are seasonal)

Please note as I was typing this post I have already popped 4 pieces into my mouth!  I kid you not I just can't stop lol
Shotwell Candy Co offers soft, rich in flavor caramel.  They practically melt in your mouth they are that buttery soft.

And each flavor is unique in its own way.  I can't decide if the salted caramel or the Bourbon & Maple Pecan are my favorite.

I have eaten lots of caramel in my 28 years of life, but this has to be the smoothest/softest!  I hate when you have to chew a lot of caramel I wont lie it hurts my jaw.  With this caramel I honestly put it into my mouth and suck on it.  Almost instantly it becomes soft and the flavors burst out of it.  They must use a truly unique process to get their caramel so good!

The greatness at Shotwell candy doesn't end there.
As if their candy wasn't good enough to make me keep coming back for more I think the origin story is super sweet.
First off that name "Shotwell" is after the owners great-grandfather!  I don't know about you, but my family is my life.  The fact this man named his business after someone in his family tells me that the company means a lot to him.
Next I was impressed that the company started with him only wanting to make tasty gifts for his friends and family.  These recipes were crafted originally for his loved ones.
And finally I love the fact Shotwell Candy Co is family owned and they do everything!  The recipes, the logos and even the wrapping.  Everything about this company is handled by them.

They want to make sure it is all done right :).


I don't know about you, but I wouldn't mind getting some yummy caramel under the tree this Christmas.
I would claim it would be a great treat for holiday parties too, but I have a feeling I wouldn't be willing to share!!
