About Shay’s

Shay’s Chocolate is a family owned and operated business located in Baltimore, Maryland. Our delectable craft caramels and confectionery  creations are a blend of  our culinary experience, combined with our passion for creating high-quality chocolate and classic sweet treats.

We hope you will enjoy our caramels and confections as much as we enjoy making them for you.

Thank you,
Jeff & Ayala


We make our caramels and popcorn from all-natural ingredients, including fresh butter, brown sugar and real vanilla extract. We believe that the little things go a long way in making our products special. When making classic recipes with simple ingredients, the quality of every ingredient has a big impact of the final product.

Our products are:

  • Nothing artificial in our products
  • Kosher, Dairy certified by the Star-D
  • Made with real butter, cream and natural vanilla extract


As newlyweds, we began a home business making confections. As our family grew, our collection of sweet products grew as well. We moved to a retail storefront, with a selection of chocolate treats, handmade truffles and other sweet treats.

In 2013, we established a new manufacturing facility in Baltimore and launched our line of Shay’s™ soft caramels. We are delighted to share with you new retailers across the country who now carry Shay’s™.
