As I mentioned in my previous post, the farm I was planning to visit to buy the caramels was closed during my trip. So, we ended up buying them at Sphinx Date Co. in Scottsdale, AZ. The store had a great variety of local products, from the caramels, to several kinds of dried fruits, wines, and different versions of dates (covered in milk and dark chocolate and stuffed with nuts, coconut, etc…), among other things. Speaking of dates, (which I love not only to eat as is, but also to sweeten my cakes) I didn’t know that Arizona is a date producer!! So, if you are in the area, stop by to grab some local treats for yourself, and to give as gifts!
