Delicious OCD caramels for a cause! »
Obsessive Confection Disorder (OCD! Adorable!) makes amazing vegan caramels (which we discovered via SFoodie last month!) and we love them. We extra love them their special “compassionate caramels,” which are infused with fresh lavender and sprinkled with lavender dust. They’re so fancy and so delicious, and they’ve got a heart of (caramel) gold.
The compassionate caramels were created to honor a close friend of Melodi, the genius behind OCD. Her friend recently lost her battle with breast cancer and Melodi wanted to do something to honor her memory. So, she’s selling the “compassionate caramels,” with every cent raised going to the Napa Valley Hospice & Adult Day Services. They’re $5 for “two honkin’ ounces” and every bite is fucking amazing. Seriously, I will give these caramels an official review but trust, RIDICULOUS. Let’s gorge! The caramels are available for pick-up in central locations in Napa or SF, or she can ship directly to your mouth. For more info, contact Melodi!

[Please excuse this crazy post, I wanted to get it up because I think it’s really important and awesome, but I am currently doing 90 other things and so AHH, everything is crazy! Especially me! NOW ORDER CARAMELS! Oh, and make sure to specify that you want the vegan ones!!]
NEW VEGAN CARAMELS, Y’ALL! Over at SFoodie, the marvelous Ms. Tamara Palmer has the sweet scoop on Napa’s Obsessive Confection Disorder (OCD! ha!) that just started selling in San Francisco. She writes:
Its products are being exclusively (for the moment) carried at Other Avenues (3930 Judah at 44th Ave.), and the organic co-op’s produce has inspired several of the caramel flavors. Unusual varieties include butternut squash, candied yam, and salted agave-lime.
She goes on to describe tasting some of the flavors and HOO BOY. Our Mark lives in the Outer Sunset and so we’re on the case. That’s Vegansaurus for you, always looking out for you via binge/purge. JK, we binge/binge. Don’t thank us yet, you’re probably gonna have to finance our piano box funerals. YOU’RE WELCOME.
