The pairing of chocolate and caramel has long been a favorite -- even, apparently, before we introduced our Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels. A newer phenomenon, born of the artisan chocolate revolution and the modern American palate's openness to the new and intriguing flavors, is uniting that combination with additional flavors to further enhance the chocolate-caramel experience. Always eager to understand a new phenomenon -- especially when it involves chocolate -- we partnered with a trusted candy maker to create Trader Joe's Taste Test of Caramels, an assortment of 12 distinct flavor profiles, sure to bring pleasure to the adventurous chocolate-caramel lover in your life.
Inside each box you'll find 12 square caramels covered in luscious dark chocolate. Each is hand-decorated with a unique design that may give you a hint about what fascinating flavors lie inside. What are the 12 flavors? So happy you asked. They are, in no particular order, Toffee Apple, Ginger, Vanilla, Maple, Double Espresso, Butterscotch, Hot Chili, Coconut, Himalayan Salted, Fig & Honey, Blood Orange Balsamic, and Strawberry Black Pepper. Feeling adventurous? Try them without matching them to the map within the box -- discover the flavors with each bite.
Give the Taste Test of Caramels as a gift and grab an extra for yourself. Better yet, have a chocolate--aramel tasting party! Buy a bunch of boxes and invite a bunch of buddies, enjoying great company and delicious candy. We're selling each 6.3 ounce box of 12 for $5.99. (Very limited quantities available.)
