The Company
Gourmet Candy Shop
HumYum was born with the intention to bring a touch of sweetness to Humboldt County & the world.

From the very first caramel, we knew that our focus was to provide tasty confections that we, and you, can feel good about.   We begin by sourcing local, organic ingredients and using a small-batch, hand-crafted methodology.
The result? An artisanal confection created with care for our taste buds, bodies, and communities: small batch caramels made with real, simple ingredients.  
The Ingredients
Organic Cane Sugar
HumYum Salted Caramel Shop
no corn syrup caramels
Many caramels contain high fructose corn syrup, to prevent crystallization.  Not here. Our caramels are sweetened with organic cane sugar, and for smoothing, we use cream of tartar. ​
Local Dairy

All dairy in HumYum Caramels is sourced from Humboldt Creamery's grass-fed cows. The wholesome cream and butter they provide is organic and free of antibiotics, hormones, pesticides, and GMOs. 
Genuine Flavors
