Eat with your Eyes: Krema Batna
When I was at Miette Confiserie late last year I picked up a handful of little individually wrapped candies. One was a licorice caramel called Krema Batna.
I liked the idea of a licorice caramel, especially one that wasn’t artificially black. I also liked the wrapper, you can’t really see in the picture that it has a picture of a cougar on it (or some other large cat) that reminded me of some kind of high school mascot. (We were the Wildcats in Mechanicsburg.)
The chew was stiff and smooth with a great toasted sugar flavor mixed with a light anise. I’d love to have more, I’ve looked around on the internet and can’t find anyplace that carries them. I was even hoping to run into them at the Fancy Food Show.
Meticulously photographed and documented reviews of candy from around the world. And the occasional other sweet adventures. Open your mouth, expand your mind.
