Legend tells us caramel was first discovered by some overzealous candy makers in 1650. By overcooking sugar, they invented one of the most versatile sweets known to man. Or, maybe it was a case of 'I accidentally left my sugar on the fire' kind of situations. But as they say, some of the best things in life were born out of accidents!
