Werther’s Original Caramel Dreams

Werther's Original Caramel DreamsThe Werther’s Original line has really expanded over the past few years. Known best for their classic toffee/hard caramel candies they’ve expanded into caramels and chocolate. Their newest product, Caramel Dreams combines the two.

The package says: Rich Creamy Caramel Covered in Smooth European Chocolate.

The bag is an interesting soft matte mylar. My bag was puffed up from a lot of air, which I assumed was to like the air in a bag of potato chips - meant to protect the contents from getting smashed. And it did its job well. Each little piece I picked out looked pretty close to perfect.

Werther's Original Caramel Dreams

Each little molded chocolate is wrapped in the classic golden folk/cellophane wrapper that Werther’s is known for.

They smell a little milky, a bit like Cadbury chocolate. The caramel center is quite liquid and gooey, so I don’t recommend biting into them expecting a chewy caramel. They’re best enjoyed popping the whole thing in the mouth.

The caramel center is smooth, a bit thick & sticky with a slight salty note to it. It’s more on the milky side of caramel than toasted sugar flavors.

They’re very pretty, well crafted and decently priced. If you’re a fan of Rolos, Cadbury Caramello or Dove Promises Caramels you might also find these to your liking. I think I’ll stick to See’s or perhaps something a little more nutty like Snickers for my caramel needs or just some Sugar Babies.

The other varieties in this line are CaraMelts and Caramel Mousse. (Candy For Dinner has photos of CaraMelts & Caramel Mousse.)

  2. I purchased the Werther’s Original Caramel Dreams.  They tasted yummy, but I wasn’t happy with the packaging.  All but 2 had caramel oozing out of the original wrappers and they were all stuck together.  I had to reach in the bag to get them out.  What a sticky mess I had on my hands. I wanted to put them in a candy dish for company, but couldn’t because all the wrappers were sticky.
    If you figure out how to package them without them being so messy, I would probably buy them again.
    Thanks

  3. The best chocolate with caramel I have ever had!!!  I bought a bag at a grocery store, went back for more, and can’t find them anywhere.
