Best Heavenly Bites

God lends a hand to the creation of caramel.

from Reader's Digest Magazine | May 2007

If eating a Trappistine Creamy Caramel seems like a religious experience, it is. The treats are handmade by nuns at Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey in Dubuque, Iowa, whose chief source of income comes from sales of the rich delights, made with real cream, butter, chocolate and corn syrup. Their Cistercian order was founded in 1098, but they have a modern website,, for ordering the blessed goodies.
