Thorntons Toffee Apple Caramels
Thorntons have brought out some new limited edition chocolates, available directly from their stores or Wh Smiths. I highly recommend only buying them from WH Smiths though as they're much cheaper there! The flavours include Candyfloss Truffles (which I reviewed yesterday), Toasted Marshmallow Truffles and these Toffee Apple Caramels. You can vote for the flavour you want to remain on shelves via Thorntons website: www.thorntons.co.uk/vote.
These are described as "soft gooey caramels flavoured with apple juice and wrapped in milk chocolate", and as you can see in my pics, they seem to have attracted the attention of the local pigeons!
I can see why the pigeons were so interested...these are some tasty caramels! I wasn't a fan of the Candyfloss truffles in this range as they were so sweet, however these were perfect. They're runny, gooey soft caramels which is always the best type in my opinion, with a lovely refreshing apple tang. The flavour actually works well, it's not too weak or strong, and gives a perfectly balanced toffee apple taste. The chocolate is rich enough to balance out the sweet caramel (30% cocoa), but is still milky and comforting, as Thorntons chocolate tends to be.
Overall, these are some very tasty chocolates and they're the ones to get my vote out of these new flavours. If you love toffee apples, these are definitely worth a try!
RATING: 8.5 out of 10.
Stay tuned for my review of the Toasted Marshmallow Truffles in this range!
