Milk Chocolate Caramels are large milk chocolates (obviously) with a thick, chewy caramel centre and decorated with thin lines of dark chocolate.
As with the Peppermint Patties, these are substantial chocolates. Sanders obviously like to make ‘em big.
But I find myself in two minds about these. On one level, they’re quite tasty, filling chocs. But on another level, I’m not convinced they belong is a box with ‘Premiere Chocolatier’ written on it.
You see, when I bite into them, I can’t help but think of (European) Mars Bars. The chocolate is similar and the caramel is similar if a little chewier. If they had a soft nougat layer, they’d be almost indistinguishable from ‘fun size’ Mars Bars.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing – I buy Mars Bars out of choice quite regularly. And it certainly didn’t stop me polishing off the whole box in a few days… but this isn’t really aimed at the every-day-candy-bar market.
I think maybe you’d get these to share with the family or casual visitors, rather than buy them as a gift. They’re nice enough… just a touch… ordinary.
Interestingly, Wisconsin Candy Dish has a slightly different opinion, so maybe it’s all down to differences in American and European tastes.
