I picked up a box of the Fleur de Sel Caramels from Trader Joe's last week as a holiday treat with the intention of reviewing them, as well as enjoying them. At less than $7 for 14-ounces of one of the hottest candy items of the year, they were a terrific deal and I wondered how well they would stack up to some of the other salted caramels that I'm familiar with.
Individually wrapped, the large candies are very sticky and chewy, exactly the sort of things that your orthodontist would have told you to avoid if you ever had braces. They have a pleasant, but relatively mild (compared to some other salted caramels) saltiness that makes your mouth water as you eat them and tempers the naturally sugary taste of caramel. Buttery and smooth, these are very good caramels, especially at the price.
Cybele, from Candyblog, wrote up her own review of these the other day, so be sure to check hers out for another perspective on their flavor and a fantastic shot of what the caramels look like when unwrapped.
