If you have been following Spokaneeats for a while now, you might know my policy: I do not post negative reviews. I choose not to post negative reviews on Spokaneeats for two main reasons: 1) I refuse to take responsibility for negatively impacting a restaurant’s livelihood or success, regardless of the quality of dining experience they have to offer and 2) there are too many amazing restaurants to be excited about. I have specifically chosen to focus my energy on highlighting great experiences rather than wasting time on the negative ones.

What about places that were just so-so?

I have hundreds of photos from mediocre restaurants that I’ll simply never share. My mission at Spokaneeats is to highlight only GREAT restaurant experiences- places I’d feel comfortable recommending to a close friend or family member. I will never post on a place I did not like, regardless of how great the photo is or how nice the server was. This policy is the same for all products, clothing, and items I receive in the mail. I will not share it with y’all until I believe in and love the product myself.

With that said, I am a big supporter of Caramel Kitchen.

Proceeds from every sale help families fund christian education, missions, and more. The creators started Caramel Kitchen as a way to help pay for their kid’s school tuition and to teach them about running a business and create opportunities for parents in their community to do the same. If you try one of their flavors and don’t like it, they will replace it with a new flavor! Visit their website for some of their special caramel recipes including “Pumpkin Spice Salted Caramel Milkshakes.” Each 10 oz. squeeze bottle is $12 and if you buy 5, you get one free! They also sell in a 8 oz glass jar.

Flavors include: Salted Caramel, Cinnamon Vanilla, Bourbon, Chocolate Caramel, Espresso, Pumpkin Spice, Chipotle, and Caramel Syrup. I tried to pick a favorite from what I tried but it is almost impossible. They are all so uniquely different. The Salted Caramel is classic and my favorite on apples and anything chocolate (cake, brownies, pudding, etc). The Pumpkin Spice has just the right hint of fall and I prefer that flavor on my popcorn. The Chocolate Caramel is oh so rich and I love that flavor on top of ice cream. The Bourbon is bold and I prefer that one straight out of the bottle. This is a judgement free zone. If you’ve tried Caramel Kitchen, you wouldn’t judge. This stuff is fantastic.

Find the Caramel Kitchen selling at local markets and pop-ups, online, or at The Culinary Stone in Coeur d’Alene.
