Choose Sweet Favorites: Caramel, Vanilla, Chocolate, and More

When it comes to crafting a profile to flavor a dessert, you need to find the right quality sweet element. One of the sweetest flavor choices possible is caramel. At Metarom USA, our flavor expertise is with caramel, where our origins are in France almost three-quarters of a century ago. Our caramel line includes old-fashioned traditional syrups as a base, extending into caramel flavors, colors, creams, toppings, fillings, powders, and more. Custom dessert flavors are the standard here at Metarom USA.

Another popular choice for a sweet dessert flavor that offers a range of possibilities in our flavor library is vanilla. Vanilla is not a throwaway component; its quality can set the tone for the entire flavor profile. With quality vanilla extract, seeds, specks, and ground beans, enjoy a wide variety of options for including the potent sweetness of vanilla in your desserts. You can ask us for samples and the current vanilla market pricing if you choose this flavor for your treats.

We also offer other sweet ingredients that can be used to flavor your desserts, including various types of divine chocolates.
