Who Is Helliemae?

To us, Helliemae is an iconic 1940s broad: strong and sassy, she's Rosie the Riveter's best friend, and after a shift at the munitions factory, she goes home to can produce from her victory garden. She loves food, friends and good times. We try do to her proud.

What Do Helliemae's Products Taste Like?

Everything we make tastes like your childhood, even if you've never had it before. Seriously: that's the goal we set for ourselves, to make the best version of whatever we do. All our caramels are rich, fresh and creamy, with some robust bitterness from deeply caramelized sugar. Nostalgia amped up with great ingredients and modern techniques.

How Do You Make Your Caramels?

We make all of our caramels in small batches with the best ingredients: cane sugar, butter, cream, fruit and spices. Then, we cut and wrap the caramels on equipment built in France in the 1950s, using compostable cellophane. Our French production line is gorgeous and cranky, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Where Can I Buy Helliemae's?

We work with great retail stores across the country, and we love sending Helliemae's fans their way. But, because every store carries different items from Helliemae's, we can't tell you with certainty who has what in stock today. If you're in a pinch and looking for a store near you, email us at and we'll do our best to get you hooked up. And, if you're lucky enough to live in Denver, the best Helliemae's selection in the nation is at The Perfect Petal - more details below.

I Want to Order Several Gifts - How Do I Do That?

We can ship all your gifts out, to different addresses, and with custom hand-written gift notes. Just email and we'll get it all set up.

Do Your Products Contain Allergens?

All our caramels and sauces contain dairy, and our Salty Peanut Butter Caramels contain peanuts. Because we bake and use peanuts and tree nuts in our kitchen, all our products may contain trace amounts of wheat, peanuts and/or tree nuts. Ingredients for each of our products are listed on the individual product pages.

Where is Helliemae's? Can I Come Visit?

We're located in Wheat Ridge, CO, just west of Denver. Our production kitchen is housed in a renovated mid-century service station. Because we spend our days making caramel, we're not set up for visitors. But, good news: we work with several retailers in Metro Denver, and the one closest to us is the best-stocked. The Perfect Petal is open 7 days a week, carries everything we make (except the 10oz bags), and they get fresh caramels weekly:
