"Life is a caber(n)et my friend, life is a caber(n)et!" OK, I had to get that pun (loosely based on a song from the musical "Cabaret") out of my system. Not funny, you say? Ahem, let us proceed.
Today was Day #6 of Chocolate and Wine Theme Week, and I tried Sweet's (gluten-free) Cabernet flavored wine gels. Like the Sweet's Port wine gels I tried yesterday, there was an alcohol-related flavor I didn't particularly care for. Yesterday, I was thinking this might have been due to my eating a product that was slightly past its due date. But, this same (artificial, alcohol-like?) flavor was still detectable in this newer batch of wine gels. These gels do contain both natural and artificial flavors (and an ingredient listed as "Red Wine Reduction"). It would be great if this flavor could be toned down just a bit.
