Butterscotch has been around for ages, and most people love the butterscotch flavor. It doesn’t get much better than a bowl of vanilla ice cream with butterscotch sauce or syrup or cookies with chocolate butterscotch chips. Butterscotch candies have the most special place in my heart, and below are some of the most delicious ones.

Old-fashioned Butterscotch Candy Sticks

If you’ve ever been to a carnival before, you have seen old-fashioned Butterscotch Candy Sticks. If you haven’t tried one of these before, then you’re long overdue. The candy itself is gold and bronze in color and has just the right mixture of creamy and buttery flavors.

The flavor of old-fashioned Butterscotch Candy Sticks hasn’t changed since 1927. The company seemingly believes that you shouldn’t fix a flavor that isn’t broken.

The box contains 85 butterscotch candy sticks, and each candy stick is five inches long. Candy sticks are known to be fairly fragile, and that’s why each of them is packaged appropriately. The manufacturer warns that there could potentially be some breakage in the candies during transit, but that won’t take away any of the taste.

To prevent breakage, try an expedited shipping method with a protective case.


Zeke’s Butterscotch Candies

If you want to dive into more of the delicacy of butterscotch candies, then Zeke’s Butterscotch is an artisan butterscotch candy that you need to try. It’s a bark type of candy that comes in thin pieces. The candy is coated in sugar so that the pieces don’t stick to each other.

When you eat the candy, your hands might get a bit messy, but you are guaranteed to have a smile on your face. The flavor of this candy is deeply rooted in caramel tastes. You’ll also experience tastes of honey and salt. It takes a while to begin chewing the candy, and you just have to be patient while it sits in your mouth.

What is the difference between caramel and butterscotch?

Both caramel and butterscotch are confectionery products made by melting sugar. However, the main difference between the two is that butterscotch is made with dark brown sugar (white sugar + molasses) and a high proportion of butter, while caramel is made with white sugar and a relatively small proportion of butter.


What does butterscotch taste like?

Butterscotch is a sweet and rich flavor that is similar to caramel but made with brown sugar instead of white sugar. It is made by combining browned butter, caramelized sugar, molasses, cream, and a pinch of salt. The flavor is soft, without the bitter notes that can make caramel more complex.


What color is butterscotch?

Butterscotch is a shade of orange-brown. It has different hex codes depending on the source, such as #E3963E (source: HTML Color Codes), and #FDB147 (source: ArtyClick).
