Today was Day #9 of Chocolate and Caramel Theme Week.
Yesterday, I sampled a Classic Caramel from the 18-piece, Agave Collection assortment box from Amella Caramels. This box contained four flavors of caramel -- all covered in dark chocolate.
Today I tried two more flavors: the Gray Sea Salt Caramel and a Double Dark Chocolate Caramel from this same collection. The fourth flavor, a Roasted Almonds caramel will be featured later, during an upcoming Chocolate and Almonds Theme Week.
Amella uses cocoa butter in their caramels giving them a less chewy and more "melty" consistency -- a mouth feel somewhere between a caramel and a truffle. This was especially true for the Double Dark Caramel; the chocolate caramel center had more of a creamy ganache taste and texture.
The Gray Sea Salt Caramel was a well-balanced execution between twinkles of sea salt, caramel and dark chocolate.
