Amella (a family run business in El Segundo, CA) claimed to have made the "World's First Cocoa Butter Caramels." I don't know if this statement was true or not, but I know that Amella caramels had a unique taste and creamy texture that I hadn't encountered before.

Today's Roasted Almonds caramels were part of an agave caramel assortment box that contained 4 different flavors. I reviewed the three other flavors (Original, Double Dark Chocolate, and Gray Sea Salt caramels) on this site earlier this month (December 2012).

Made with gluten-free ingredients, including organic blue agave nectar and the aforementioned cocoa butter, the two caramels I tried today had a silky smooth dissolve, and were coated with dark chocolate and topped with a sprinkle of crunchy, roasted almond bits. (They were also Kosher.)

Today was Day #5 of Chocolate and Almond Theme Week.
