I was pretty excited to get the opportunity to try out this awesome variety of Werther’s Original candies. I’ve always been a huge fan of Werther’s Original, so when I was offered this tasting opportunity I was THRILLED to say the least.
I got the chance to try the Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn, Chewy Caramels, Creamy Caramel Filled Hard Candies, and the Caramel Apple Filled Hard Candies.
The Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn (click for ingredient information) didn’t last long at all. It wasn’t at all soggy like some caramel corn can be, but it was still chewy (versus crunchy hard). I am hooked. I can’t wait to try the Werther’s Original Limited Edition Spiced Caramel Apple Popcorn! YUM!
The Werther’s Original Caramel Apple Filled (click for ingredient information) and the Werther’s Original Creamy Caramel Filled (click for ingredient information) were just as good. The caramel apple was going to be a hard sell for me. I don’t usually care for “apple flavored” candy, especially in liquid form. I was actually very pleasantly surprised to see that the carmel apple candies contained apple juice concentrate. Now I am not saying that these candies can replace one of your servings of fruit in a day, though that would be nice. I mean come on, it’s candy. However, it’s nice to see at least one thing that isn’t “artificially flavored”. It’s a step in the right direction! I ended up really enjoying them! The apple filling is somewhat chewy, more so than the caramel filling. Both are surrounded by a crunchy outer Werther’s Caramel shell. It’s a great combination of caramel textures. These are definitely a win!
Werther’s had a lot to live up to when it came to their chewy caramel candies. After all, I was the Reserve Grand Champion at the Dane County Fair in 6th grade. No seriously, I was. Don’t believe me check this out:
That’s right. That purple ribbon right there makes me the caramel queen of Dane County, Wisconsin. Move over Werther’s, there’s a new caramel in town. Fully Caffeinated Caramels. It has a nice ring to it…
OK – so I haven’t made caramels in years, but let’s get real I was awesome then I am even more awesome now. I will admit though, the Werther’s Chewy Caramels ended up being (almost) as good as mine!
