Recap of National Caramel Day Event on April 5 with Werther’s Original

*We were invited by Werther’s Original to attend and post about this event*

Today was “National Caramel Day”, and we celebrated by visiting a special one-day, POP-UP event at the Santa Monica Pier sponsored by Werther’s Original and Hasbro. My kid and her friend played on a “life-size” Candy Land game board, with real treats at each stop. The event also kicked off a digital version of the game so caramel lovers nationwide can experience CANDY LAND: The Werther’s Caramel Edition Game at

We weren’t there when he arrived, but Mario Lopez attended the event with his family (photo in slideshow below, provided by Werther’s Original).

It was a fun day on the pier with friends and candy!

Candy-maker Gustav Nebel first introduced his delicious, iconic caramel recipe in 1909 in the small European village of Werther, Germany. Using only the best ingredients — real butter, fresh cream, white and brown sugars, a pinch of salt and a lot of time — he created a treasure worthy of being wrapped in gold and named the candy Werther’s Original in honor of his village. Crafting this smooth, creamy caramel became a family tradition handed down through generations.

Today, Werther’s Original comes in several varieties, from hard, chewy, soft and filled caramels, to sugar-free caramels and even caramel popcorn. Headquartered in Germany and Chicago, people all around the world enjoy the unique taste of Werther’s Original.
