Sweet on Trader Joe's Saturdays: Fleur de Sel Caramels

Fleur de Sel Caramels...they sound so fancy.

Trader Joe's Fleur de Sel Caramels are described as "hand made caramel with Fleur de Sel, a hand harvested sea salt collected off the coast of France."  Ooo-la-la. You'll get 10 ounces of these individually wrapped caramels for $2.99. 

Let's see how these bad boys stacked up, shall we?
trader joe's fleur de sel caramels review
My take: This is how caramels should taste.  Soft and pliable, smooth and creamy...Trader Joe's hit the nail on the head with these.  If I didn't know they were "fleur de sel," I'm not sure I would notice the salt; I would just think they tasted "right."  Now, I'm left with only one thought...I must make caramel brownies with these.
Overall rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kiddo's take: I'm not that much of a caramel fan myself... but I have to admit, these are pretty good. The fleur de sel adds just the right amount of salt to the rich, creamy, and bold taste of the caramel. Honestly, the only downside I can see to these is that the wrappers are hard to open. :)
Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Trader Joe's Fleur de Sel Caramels: yep. You need 'em.

*Each week the kiddo (age 15) and I review a Trader Joe's sweet.  Leave your favorites and/or requests in the comments!* 


  1. Their Honey Wheat pretzels are delish too!

  2. I really have enjoyed these posts on Trader Joe treats. We just got a store here in Fl and I am trying your suggestions!

  3. Glad to have found your site. Keep up the good work! DB Product Review

  4. Love love their caramels so much!! Lindsay unfortunately/fortunately introduced these to me!!

  5. I love these posts--Kiddo's writing kills me! I hope he's working on a novel because I would definitely buy it. My favorite sweet at Trader Joe's is their Toasted Coconut Cookie Thins, especially with a little of their lemon curd smeared on. I would love to see what you two think of them!

  6. If I have but one wish, I wish Kiddo would go Trader Joe's shopping with me.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! Happy baking! :)
