About Us


The Company

HumYum was born with the intention to bring a touch of sweetness to Humboldt County & the world with healthy and delicious organic, gluten free desserts. Specializing in organic, gluten free caramels, caramel sauce and vegan caramel sauce.

From the very first caramel, we knew that our focus was to provide tasty confections that we, and you, can feel good about.  We begin by sourcing local, organic ingredients and using a small-batch, hand-crafted methodology to create exceptional organic, gluten free, vegan desserts.

These artisanal confections are created with care for our taste buds, bodies, and communities: small batch caramels and caramel sauces made with real, simple and organic ingredients. Conscious of people with food sensitivities and inspired by the slow food movement our candy is crafted with the highest standards of care for our customers and the environment. Organic, gluten free, corn free, soy free, peanut free with dairy free options.
