My other product invention: Gruyère Cheese Caramel

where to buy unique caramels

Authentic Gruyère A.O.P. from Switzerland. Heavy Cream. Milk. Caramelizing Sugar. Sea Salt. This caramel is infused with Gruyère, resulting in a balanced, full-flavored caramel with savory, umami, bottom-of-the-fondue-pot flavor.  It is an excellent addition to a traditional cheese board.  Sub the caramel for classic Quince paste, and pair it with apples, nuts, coffee, wine, whisky, and beer. Melt it down with a little cream to drizzle over pie or ice cream.  The flavor profile is complex and satiating, and it demands to be plated in your holiday spread, or given as a small gift to a cheese lover in your life. 

using caramels as a cheese pairing

The cheese caramel recipe was inspired by cheese, of course.  That classic, caramel flavor one can taste in hard, crystalline Gouda or Alpine styles is captured in the caramel.  Dairy is classically incorporated into caramel, and cheese is an addition that is one step further in flavor and complexity.

Shipping Details


If you have purchased cheese hardware from our Grotto collection, it usually takes us 1 to 3 business days to ship your order, unless otherwise listed on the respective product page.

Cheese Orders

As the cheeses are a fresh product, we want to ensure the quickest transit time as possible, so your order arrives in the best possible condition.  Express shipping costs range from $25 - $55 depending on the package size, delivery window, location and carrier. We ship Mondays only each week, and orders must be placed by Thursday the week prior to be included in Monday's shipments.  If you purchased a cheese subscription with a set shipping schedule (Meet the Makers or any Gift Subscription), please refer to the respective product page for the fixed shipping schedule.

Please note: cheese ships from our cheese warehouse and hardware ships from our hardware warehouse. If you are purchasing both hardware and cheese, there will be a shipping charge for the cheese portion of your order.

International Orders

We are sorry, but we aren't legally allowed to ship cheese across the US border!  We can, however, ship our hardware from our Grotto collection worldwide.  Please note that the shipping costs options you see at checkout do not include customs, duties, and taxes which will be billed to you upon reaching the border, and will be an additional expense.  Those costs vary from country to country, but we recommend calculating at an additional 20% charge. If you refuse the package due to these additional fees and the hardware is returned to us, we will be able to issue a refund minus the outbound and return shipping costs.
