This Saturday, we bring you a review of Trader Joe's Fleur de Sel Caramel Sauce. It's hot outside and we're in full-on ice cream mode around here. Sauce is a bonus.
A 10-ounce jar of caramel sauce cost $3.49.
A mom's (my) take: My first thought on this caramel sauce was...wow, it's beautiful! Thick, shiny, luscious...it looks like an expensive or homemade sauce. Taste-wise, the caramel flavor is very deep and not overly sweet. Yes, there is a little taste of the fleur de sel in here, but not a big punch of it. I definitely appreciate the fact that it's made with sugar, cream, and butter...and NOT with added "caramel coloring." (What is that anyway?) Real ingredients...another reason I love TJ's! On ice cream, the texture remains soft and thick while adding just the right flavor and richness of caramel. Try it on vanilla frozen custard!
Rating straight out of the jar: 4 of 5 stars
Rating on ice cream: 4.5 of 5 stars
A teenager's (Jack's) take: My favorite thing about this sauce is not necessarily the flavor, but the viscosity. I love how it is not runny or too free-flowing, but at the same time doesn't get too hard when put on ice cream. The taste is a wonderful, classic caramel flavor. However, it didn't have any extra "wow factor" or feature that would make me buy it as opposed to another caramel sauce. Trust me though, it is definitely good.
