Caramac is the brand name for a caramel flavoured bar manufactured by Nestlé. Originally it was launched by Mackintosh's (later Rowntree Mackintosh) in 1959. The name is derived from the syllabic abbreviation of Caramel and Mackintosh's.
The name of the product was determined in a competition. The competition was held in what was the Norwich factory of Mackintosh's, and won by Barbara Herne. The bar was made at the old Norwich factory until the factory closed in 1996, when production transferred to Fawdon in Tyneside where it is still made.
A similar confection is used in the covering of McVitie's Gold biscuit bar. A limited edition Caramac Kit Kat bar was released in the United Kingdom in 2005 and due to popular demand it was brought back in 2007.
During the 1980s and 1990s a Caramac easter egg was also available.
Caramac was available in Canada during part of the 1960s and 1970s.
