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?
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. :)
