Knudsen's Caramels - Handcrafted to Perfection!
Updated: Nov 22, 2019
Hand-crafted with all locally sourced ingredients, these caramels stand above the rest! To be sure, each and every batch is taste-tested by a member of the Knudsen family, personally. Speaking of family, this is such a family affair that the owner's son is our personal sales representative!
This business venture began with cheesecakes, believe it or not! The Knudsen family realized they needed something to supplement cheesecake sales during off-seasons, so they decided to give caramels a go. Aren't we glad they did!
With operations located in Red Wing, MN, the Knudsen Family has been hand-crafting caramels to perfection since the mid 1980s. Ron, Peggy, sons Josh and Noah along with an additional staff of 6 are in charge of making the soft and buttery caramels that have been highlighted in national publications and compared to the old-time candies once sold in general stores.
