Caramel Crown

The Caramel Crown could have been awesome. It could have been a triumph. It could have been a contender. As it is, it’s only sort of quite good. Why? Well, they are topped, as the packet notes, with ‘gooey caramel’. Gooey. Gooey phooey. Surely this should have been chewy? After putting these biscuits in the fridge, I was expecting that caramel to at least harden a bit but it remained resolutely gooey. It’s a real pity, as I think this is a missed opportunity. Booey.

In other respects, the Caramel Crown is nice enough. The biscuit has a malty taste, and they have a good thick coating of milk chocolate featuring attractive raised ridges; the chocolate cracks in a satisfying manner when you bite into them releasing the gooey caramel.

Like all chocolate biscuits, they do need to be chilled; when warm they are just an over-gooey, over-sweet mess. They are also dreadful when dunked. Just don’t go there, even for curiosity’s sake. You’ll regret it.

I’d give these a six or seven out of ten – but that could have been a nine had the caramel been a bit firmer.

  1. Try these again sometime, the two packs I’ve had recently have been quite chewy in the caramel area (this was straight from the pack, no refrigeration), maybe a little softer than a Chocolate Eclair or a Mintie that’s been in the sun 🙂

    Definitely an amazing biscuit.
    Love your blog btw!

  2. Hmmm, perhaps the review pack came from a particularly soft batch. I shall have to try some more!
