Annie B's was founded in 1978 by Tom & Carol Bouquet in Kellogg, MN. The couple enjoyed making caramels out of their kitchen and soon discovered they could make a living doing just that. They named their business after their daughter Annie.
A few years later, handcrafted popcorn was added to the products offered. What a hit!
While our original caramel is still our bestselling, more than 20 additional flavors have joined the lineup over the years. Our caramels are slow-cooked in large copper kettles, so they are sure to be consistently buttery and delicious.
Tom & Carol have since retired after selling the company in 2012. Our small but mighty team is working to make sure that our products are of the highest quality, and that our customer service is top-notch.
Oprah Winfrey gave Annie B's caramels her stamp of approval by naming us to her Favorite Things list in 2014. What an honor!
In 2015, Annie B's merged with another highly-respected Minnesota company, B.T. McElrath Chocolatier. Caramels, popcorn and chocolate make a lot of sense together, and you're sure to see some exciting new products in the coming months.
Until then, we hope you enjoy what we have to offer, and please don't hesitate to contact us if you have questions, comments or just feel like have a little chat. We'd love to hear from you!
