Nestle Delicious Caramel Whips
Recently, Nestle launched a new range of Walnut-Free Whips, in Vanilla, Mint and Delicious Caramel varieties. The reasoning for this is that some people don't like the walnuts in the original Walnut Whips, and also to save on costs. I don't have strong feelings on this personally, since I never liked the walnuts on Walnut Whips anyway. I used to pick them off whenever I ate one and give it to my Grandad! So it's good news to me that Nestle have added some variety to the gooey mallows. I chose Delicious Caramel to review because who doesn't love caramel?! I found this three pack in Poundland with the other varieties, and they're available from other stores too.
The Whips are individually wrapped and weigh 27.8g. They're described as "soft caramel flavour mallow in a milk chocolate shell".
Cutting one open, the mallow had a slight yellowish caramel colour. Biting into it, I could first taste the chocolate; it's super sweet and milky, standard Nestle stuff but it works really well. The caramel mallow is lovely, very sweet and sticky and with a decent caramel flavour. These are very tasty indeed and felt like a real indulgent treat. For the price I think they're a good bargain, and they're definitely something I'd buy again.
Overall, I would highly recommend giving these a try if you like caramel flavoured things! I'd love to try the minty ones next as I imagine those will be very nice too. These will certainly make for good festive nibbles or stocking fillers over the Christmas season.
