National Caramel Day is celebrated on April 5. To commemorate the day, I returned to my favorite place for all things caramel at Epcot, Karamell-Küche in Germany Pavilion.

National Caramel Day at Karamell-Küche in Germany Pavilion at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort

Presented by Werther’s Original, Karamell-Küche (or Caramel Kitchen) is a shop along World Showcase promenade that’s filled with delicious caramel-themed treats. There are pre-packaged goodies from Werther’s Original such creamy caramel-filled hard candy, or flavorful soft caramels made with real butter and fresh cream.

My favorite item is the freshly made caramel popcorn. My girlfriend and I love sharing a large bag during an evening stroll around World Showcase (we usually finish it by the time we get to Japan Pavilion). When I arrived at the location to get photographs for this story, the International Program cast members had just made a fresh batch, and the entire shop was filled with the sweet scent of caramel!

The shop also carries pre-packaged popcorn that uses Werther’s Original Signature Caramel. Flavors include caramel popcorn with chocolate flavored drizzle; caramel popcorn with stroopwafel, salted pretzel pearls and chocolate flavored drizzle; and caramel popcorn with roasted pecans and chocolate flavored drizzle.

Some of the more unique offerings found at Karamell-Küche are the Caramel Bacon Squares. Each square contains Werther’s Original caramel and bits of bacon both inside and out.

Finally, the location is introducing two additional flavored chocolate caramel squares. The first is a lavender flavored square which I photographed on a vintage World Showcase tin tray from the early days of EPCOT Center. The other square will have a blood orange flavor. Both of these flavors are offered seasonally and have limited availability.

What’s your favorite treat from Karamell-Küche? Please share in the comments below.

  • Hey Steven, the International College Program participants don’t work in the pavillions, the Cultural Representative Program ones do though. I’m hungry for caramel popcorn now!

  • Oh, man, that tin tray. How much do you want for it? 🙂

    But seriously, can someone just reissue all of the opening day EPCOT Center merchandise? I’ll rent a double-decker bus to drive around the promenade and load it up as I stop in the shops.

  • My favourite is the chocolate and caramel covered pineapple! It’s a staple in my “Disney diet”!

  • Oh my goodness!! My mouth is watering! That freshly popped caramel popcorn is my very favorite treat at Walt Disney World! My parents were just there in February and bought me a bag that they mailed to me in New Jersey. Even days after it was popped, it was just as delicious!! I’m counting the days until our trip this summer when I can have some more!!

  • My favorite are the milk chocolate sea salt caramels ! So good!
