Choceur Salted Caramel White Chocolate Almonds (Aldi)
Whilst in Aldi over the weekend I spotted a new range of festive chocolate coated almonds...there's some rather unique flavours like Mascarpone White Chocolate, Spiced Chocolate and these: Salted Caramel White Chocolate. I'll be reviewing the latter two shortly but I just had to start with these because although salted caramel is becoming too ubiquitous now, these taste amazing!
They cost 99p at Aldi and are described as "Almonds covered in white chocolate blended caramel powder and salt". The fact that these are white chocolate as well as salted caramel is what really sets them apart from your average salted caramel product.
The almonds were nice and chunky with a thick layer of the salted caramel white chocolate on each. Taking a bite, I was in heaven...it tastes like Caramac, or rather Salted Caramac, but much better quality!
The flavour is creamy, sweet and caramelly with just the right hint of salt. It's like if Caramac bars tasted as good as they used to but with a hint of salt added. The nuts were nicely toasted with a woody, savoury flavour. I couldn't help but keep munching on these one after the other, they're very addictive!
Overall, these are fantastic and I urge everyone to seek them out, they'd be the highlight of any Christmas snacking selection for sure! Just make sure to buy a few packs as they're so moreish!
