Feature Friday! Kentucky Proud - Cappy's Incredible Caramel Corn


      With colder temperatures arriving in Kentucky on Halloween what better day to feature the delicious Kentucky Proud treat, Cappy's Incredible Caramel Corn, formerly located in Union, but now moved to their new location in Paris, Ky.


     Cappy's Incredible Caramel Corn is owned and operated by Brad and Margaret Wallace and their family. I purchased a bag of their "Signature" flavor caramel corn at one of Lexington's distinctive shops and loved the sweet, but light and fresh flavor. Its also very addictive!
     What makes this caramel corn so unique, and I think special, is that the original "Signature" flavor is a family recipe from Brad's aunt. For years Margaret made the caramel corn for family and community events and always received compliments and requests for the recipe, which she always kept to herself.
     In 2011, the Wallace's decided to take their product to the public, joining the Kentucky Proud program, and attending festivals, and events to sell their products. I personally don't know many people that don't like caramel corn so I was not surprised to learn that they sold out at every show and quickly began to get orders from businesses at many locations in the state. They use high quality ingredients and are looking at using Kentucky Proud popcorn for their products.
     Margaret worked to develop other flavors and they now have 7 distinctive flavors available year round and the addition of Peppermint during the Christmas season.  The seven flavors are Signature, Sweet & Salty, KY Bourbon, Cinnamon, Molasses, Kahlua, and Vanilla Bean. The caramel corn is offered in bags of two sizes and by the case.
     Margaret has developed other products that you may not find at their online store, but can be purchased at festivals or shows, or ordered if you call or email. How does Bourbon Caramel Sauce sound? Yes a great treat over ice cream or cake! They also have Caramel Sauce and Chocolate Caramel Sauce available. She also makes a wonderful brittle from the smaller caramel corn pieces and makes caramel apples during the Autumn apple season.
     With Christmas just around the corner, think of Cappy's Caramel Corn for a delicious Kentucky  Proud product to give to your family, friends, or business associates. Cappy's has gift basket options and can customize orders.
     Be sure to go to their website for more information on Cappy's Incredible Caramel Corn and look for them at Kentucky festivals including the Christmas Gift and Decor Show at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, December 12-14.  http://cappyscaramelcorn.com/
