“ Brand: Storck / Type: Caramel „
I have always been a fan of Werthers Originals and when I found there were some new products in the range I was excited to try them. I bought a packet of these in a local Tesco store for £1.50 and the bag is 125g. So do these stand up to the great taste of Werthers Originals. Other flavours in the range are Milk Chocolate, Dark cream and also two other different Caramel flavours "Caramel Mousse" and "Caramelts". Open the packet and you will see the golden wrapper of the normal Werthers and the chocolates are the same shape as the normal Werthers hard boiled sweet as well.
These are absolutely delicious, when you bite into the chocolate treat you get the wonderful mix of the creamy Milk Chocolate and Caramel which blends together superbly. It gives the chocolate treat a lovely melt in the mouth texture. I am a big fan of Chocolate and Caramel combinations and I have to say that this is one of the best I have tasted in that aspect. These have a very smooth taste and texture and this is another excellent part of these Chocolate Caramels. I think the success of these makes for more tasty opportunities with some other treats in the future.
This is the first time I have tried these particular ones and I have thoroughly enjoyed eating these Chocolate Caramels from Werthers Original and I will certainly be buying them again in the not too distant future. These come out at 220 calories for every six sweets so bear that in mind when you have them. Apart from that they are very good indeed and ones that I would recommend to anybody who likes Wethers Originals and likes the combination of Chocolate and Caramel. This is an excellent combination done very well indeed. An excellent and very tasty treat.
Whilst at Poundland recently where I tend to stock up on junk food, I was waiting at the till with an armful of shopping when I noticed this Werther's Original stand which held some new versions of Werthers. I hadn't had any Werthers products for some time as the last time I had them I had had a bad experience with some mouse droppings though it turned out in the end that it was nothing to do with them but nonetheless it put me off for a while but these new products looked interesting and I rememberd seeing an advert on TV for them not so long ago.
There were three types to choose from. The Caramel, Dark or Milk and this is the Caramel version. I wasn't sure what it was I had thought I was buying, but this is milk chocolate filled with soft caramel. I suppose I had expected some of the original Werthers quality to be in them but putting that aside I gave it a try.
The product comes in a tall pouch which has the traditional gold colouring with a brown flash to illustrate that it is a chocolate variety and there is a picutre on the front. Quite smart overall. Each sweet is individully wrapped inside in gold foil which is helpful in warm weather such as on the day I write this when it's 28 degrees otherwise it would end up in a big melty mess.
The chocolate on these sweets is extremely soft and melts in your mouth within a few seconds and all the caramel pours out. Each chocoalte is shaped in the traditional Werthers shape with the spiral shape decoration on top and a pool of golden caramel inside.
Maybe it could have done with a little less caramel and a little more chocolate as they are incrdibly sickly but other than that I was quite impressed. For those who like soft caramel, such as Dairy Milk Caramel or Galaxy Caramel, this would be a dream.
Would certainly buy these again especially if at the price of £1.
To me, Werthers Original were always the sweets that your grandfather had and the ones that sat in the sweet bowl gathering dust because no one wanted to eat them. I really didn't like the hard boiled sweet with the butterscotch toffee flavour as it just wasn't appealing at all but when it comes to these new chocolate caramels, Werthers have really hit the jackpot.
Werthers are owned by a Lithuanian company-- August Storck KG and were founded in 1903. According to an article I read, they are named after the village of Werther in Westphalia, where the company was founded.
These new chocolate caramels are absolutely delicious. They are chewy sweets as opposed to the hard original candies. The sweets have an outer layer of chocolate and inside is a lovely ooey gooey chewy caramel. The sweets are about the same size as the original Werthers and look the same too with a swirly pattern on the top. They come wrapped the same as well in the crinkly gold wrappers.
Werthers describe these new chocolates as , "the same smooth and comforting taste of Werthers Original can now be found in five deliciously melt in your mouth caramel and chocolate specialities."
So far I have only tried the chocolate caramels but they also come in milk, dark cream, caramel mousse and Caramelts. They suggest that a serving size is seven pieces of these sweets which I would say is about right. Per 7 sweets there are 240 calories which is about the same as a chocolate bar but there are 16g of fat which I think is quite a lot but oh well, they are a treat.
I was out shopping with my mum the other day and whilst in the queue waiting to pay we succumbed to another of the impulse buys infront of the tills and bought a packet of these Werthers chocolate caramels.
My mum is one of those people who loves the werthers toffees and as I dont mind them we decided to buy a pack and give them a go. They had three different flavours to choose from, dark chocolate, milk chocolate the the ones which we opted for, chocolate caramel. They were all on offer for 99p instead of the £1.99 original price, which im assuming is an introductory offer.
For the 99p they really arent bad at all, we both thought that they would be another 'something and nothing' sweet which wouldnt be around for long, however this doesnt seem to be the case. They are basically the same as the werthers originals in terms of size and shape, but are chocolate with a swirl of caramel running through. They are very rich and sickly, but very flavoursome at the same time. You really cant eat many before you have to put them back down, which could be a good thing for some people! The best way I could describe them would be like Lindt Lindor chocolates, the creamy texture but with a hint of werthers original too, a strange but very nice combination.
They work out at around 5p each as there were 21 in the bag which is about how much you would expect to pay for this type of chocolate.I think the non-offer price of £1.99 is slightly too much, for the average of 10p per chocolate you could be looking at a much nicer box of chocolates. For this introductory price though they are definatly worth a try.
I havent tried the others yet but as I am a fan or dark chocolate I may plump for those next to see how they compare on my next trip to the shops.
Overall I would give these a 3/5, they are a nice chocolate and you cant go wrong for 99p, but as there is so much choice out there I think I would always tend o go for something else instead of these. Either way, give them a try!
While out shopping on a Friday evening I spotted another "Bury your head in the sand item!" ( to me this means no nutrition information so I can't feel guilty when I try one of these things!) luckily where it is chocolate I will not be going mad on stuffing these into my mouth so 1 or 2 won't break the calorie/points bank!.
Now I am a lover of a nice creamy toffee and Werthers has always been one that I would choose if I was buying any, so when I saw these on display at the end of one of the aisles I decided to grab a bag. Now the only problem was that there was 3 to choose from Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or Chocolate Caramel. So I thought I don't know what Werthers are like in the chocolate stakes, but with a caramel filling at least half of it should taste good!.
These come in a shiny foil bag ( similar to the bags of coffee you can buy for your marchines!)in a nice gold and brown colour with the words "Smooth milk chocolate filled with soft caramel" written at the bottom of the bag and this is what sold it to me. So I tore the bag which seemed to rip in every direction it could and the chocolates fell out onto the breakfast bar. Straight away I thought Oh No! I've read the front of the bag wrong as it looked like I had poured out a bag of Werthers Original Toffees! ( must take and wear my glasses when going shopping!).
There was about 20 in the bag and each one is individually wrapped in a gold shiny wrapper with the words "Werthers Original" with caramel written underneath in tiny tiny writing. When picking one up you will notice that it actually feels like the toffee's as well. On unwrapping you will see that it has the same little swirl on top of the chocolate. It is quite a small sweet and is oval in shape and fairly thin ( not like an After Eight Mint, but not as plump as a chocolate out of a box!).
Once you have bitten into the chocolate ( which you could just pop into your mouth whole, but you are better to bite into it so you can taste the caramel!) you will be hooked, as these are really lovely and they are very rich so I wouldn't have thought that it would be easy to eat to many at once!.
I'm glad I chose these rather than the others, but now that I have I will be trying the Dark Chocolate ones as Werthers seem to know how to make a good tasting chocolate as well.
As I said before there are around 20 chocolates in the bag that weighs 125g, these are suitable for vegetarians and are gluten free. It does state that there could be peanuts, traces of hazlenuts, almonds and other nuts in this product. So not nut allergy friendly I'm afraid.
These are at the moment on special offer in Tesco's ( and probaly nearly all the other supermarkets!) for 99p instead of £1.99. The current price is good, but I'm not sure if I would pay nearly £2 for a bag though!
I wish they did have the calories on the bag as I would be interested to see just how many there are in this small choccy!. So Werthers are not just great at making toffees so Cadburys be warned!!
I'm giving 4 stars as I've knocked one of as I think the full price is a little bit on the expensive side.
