After having a Krispy Kreme with a Salted Caramel Matchmaker, I decided to tell you what a box of Salted Caramel Matchmakers are all about. Are they better? You’ll have to read on to find out more...
Salted Caramel Matchmakers
”Salted Caramel flavour chocolates with skimmed milk chocolate, dark chocolate and boiled sugar pieces."
If you’ve not had a Matchmaker before, they are chocolate sticks, which happen to look more like long, straight twigs. They are about 4 inched long and just under a centimetre in circumference. They have a real good snap when you break them in half. These ones today have bits of crunch salted caramel pieces. The first thing I noticed when I unwrapped the cellophane from the box was the smell… you could smell these a mile off! The smell was really sweet and full of caramel. I could smell the chocolate too. Although these are made with milk chocolate and dark chocolate, you don’t really get the dark chocolate bitterness come through. That’s a good thing for me as I really don’t like dark chocolate.
These are nice, but a bit sickly. Usually I’d be able to demolish a box of these in an evening. These were far too sweet for that. Also the strong smell was really getting to me. I can honestly say the smell was that strong, that it stunk out my cupboard. The last thing I want is my snack cupboard to smell and taste of these. Even though they were nice, I don’t think I would have them again.
