How to use the words Caramel and Carmel?

Take Highway 1 south from Monterey to reach the charming seaside town of Carmel, of which Clint Eastwood was formerly mayor. Dissolve sugar in a little water and cook it down until the sugar turns brown to create caramel.

A nationwide chain uses the illiterate spelling “Karmelkorn,” which helps to perpetuate the confusion between these two words.
