Werther's Chocolate Unwrapped

Hard butterscotch candies may be almost as ubiquitous as fruit-flavored hard candies, but there’s always been something different about Werther’s Originals. Perhaps it’s their delicate balance of sweet and salt, or perhaps it’s the fact that they’re made with real cream and butter, but in a candy market filled with generic butterscotch candies, there’s only one Werther’s.

Until recently, that is. Like many other classic candies, Werther’s are now available in an array of different forms – from caramel-coffee to sugar-free to caramel-mint, and now, these Werther’s Originals Caramel Chocolates.

Werther’s was making a big deal out of these at the All Candy Expo – when you went through the main entrance, the first thing you saw was a white-hatted “chef” armed with a tray of these glittering, foil-wrapped chocolate discs. Of course, I allowed him to provide me with a few samples, in both Milk and Dark. (I realized later that I’d been scooped – we’d already posted a review of the dark chocolate Werther’s Originals all the way back in November. D’oh!)

I was initially very curious about what “caramel chocolates” would involve – these seemed a little thin to have any kind of a liquid center, so my guess was that they contained crushed Werther’s hard candy bits. It turned out I couldn’t have been more wrong.

Instead, the oblong discs of chocolate are swirled with what appears to be caramel-flavored (and colored) white chocolate. They’re actually quite striking, but how do they taste?

When they’re unwrapped, they give off a scent of butterscotch ice cream topping, giving me a major craving for a McDonalds ice cream sundae.

Flavor-wise, they’re a dead ringer for one of my favorite chocolate bars, the Caramilk, only with the caramel and chocolate swirled together. I don’t know if they outsourced the chocolate to a larger manufacturer (a pretty common practice), but it definitely tastes like a Cadbury product, like a Creme Egg, with the flavor but not the overwhelming sweetness of a gooey sugary filling. I don’t detect any flavor notes that scream “Werther’s,” but these are definitely better than I was expecting, if only because they taste like my childhood.

In all, I found these a pretty tasty item – and pretty to boot. These are definitely something different for Werther’s, but as we all know, different can be a good thing.
