Whole Foods Product Review: French Caramel Fleur De Sel
Three words describe these caramels - perfect little treat. Beware; you might just finish the whole box in one sitting.
The most outstanding quality of these caramels is their balance flavor. The caramels are sprinkled with sea salt during the baking process (fleur de sel, specifically), which balances the usual sweetness of caramel and creates a more robust flavor.
Now, it will take you a bit of time to chew because of the soft, chewy texture but it is well worth every minute. You can savor the flavor of the caramel long after it is gone.
Do not let the small blue packaging, reminiscent of a Chinese take-out box, fool you – there is about 24 caramels in each box, plenty to go around – or not. A few of these caramels will take you to your own personal nirvana. They are perfect for an after dinner snack to not feel guilt about you since four caramels are only 100 calories.
You can pick up theses caramels from your local Whole Foods for about four dollars a pop. So, the next time you’re strolling the aisles looking for a sweet treat remember the French Caramel Fleur De Sel.
