Finally, a caramel base that actually tastes like caramel! They say the base is a sweet caramel and I have to agree with them there. It’s not potently sweet thanks to all the butteriness and you do pick up hints of salt. This saltiness only intensifies when you run into streaks of the sea salt caramel swirl which, to be honest, isn’t all that often. I’m guessing the swirl got overly mixed in the making of this flavor which contributed to the saltiness of the base. This is in no way a complaint because the added salt component works perfectly in not letting the all caramel flavor become cloying as well as boring. I can’t help but wish they had included some sort of solid mix-in though. I would’ve loved to seen some chocolate covered pretzels thrown in there for the ultimate sweet and salty flavor. As is, it’s still a solid flavor but not worth the price tag in my book. Looking over the other flavors they sent me, I’m sure I’ll be impressed by the rest.
Verdict? Needs a little something extra to be extraordinary.
Buy Again? If I could get it cheaper, maybe.
