Review: Caramel Sticks at Disneyland’s Candy Palace

So, last month I headed out west for the 24-Hour Kickoff of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Anniversary Celebration …and pretty much ate my way through Disneyland in three days. SO, I have LOTS to share with you here on the blog of my epic Diamond eating adventure.

But, today I’m going to highlight one of the best things I ate, hands down, during those three days. And that’s saying something, because I had a Bacon Mac & Cheese Cone, brunch at Club 33, all five Jungle Skewers at the Bengal Barbecue and so much more.

Are you ready? Then allow me to set the scene…you wander into the Candy Palace to check the candy cases to see what’s new…

And here they are…

CARAMEL STICKS.

The minute I saw them for the first time (they are new, by the way), I knew I had to have them. The sweet cast member told us to come back later in the day so that we could try both the milk chocolate caramel stick, and the dark chocolate salted carmel stick (since only the milk chocolate was available at the time). Ummmm…yes please!

OK these are ridiculous. And so simple!

A slab of rich, super-soft, fresh buttery caramel dipped in dark or milk chocolate. That’s it! Then the addition of some coarse salt to the dark chocolate version for added depth of flavor.

We thought it might be a tough chew considering the thickness of the caramel, but both sticks were impressively soft. That’s what really sets them above the bar when it comes to caramel treats — that easy-soft texture. It’s like buttah. These are unreal.

They’re four bucks apiece. Grab ‘em. Just do it. They’ll be one of your best Disneyland memories.

    Actually these aren’t new. The dark chocolate one may be, but the milk chocolate caramel stick has been around for years. Definitely begged my parents for one every time we went when I was 7!

    I would just love to get to the Candy Palace and the DLR. I would def buy a caramel stick, but I’m afraid it would be sharing a box with a plethora of other goodies, too.

    Oh my goodness! I’m salivating over here. I’m guessing there’s nowhere to get these presently at Walt Disney World, huh? :(

    Oh wow! Somehow we missed those when we were there the first week in June. We did have the Tigger Tail in Critter Country, and an Olaf marshmallow caramel stick from Candy Palace. We are convinced that the Disney caramel is what really sets these treats apart, as marshmallow is not typically our thing. They were both delicious, but not as wonderful as the Pooh’s Hunny Pot Apple.

    I have looked for these during my last three visits to DLR (most recent one being 8/2/15!) and was unable to find them at Candy Palace and the candy shop in Critter Country. I have only seen the marshmallow sticks covered in chocolate and caramel. Am I missing something here? I was going by the visual in the photo but also did not see any signs with the name.

    The caramel bars are amazing!! My favorite thing ever! I stocked up this weekend. This is actually an oldie but goodie. They use to make years ago and stopped for some reason. So glad to see they are making them again. Definitely my first stop on Main Street.
