You might recall a while back when I posted about a package that William Curley sent to me from London. As part of that package came caramels. Lovely, divine, chocolate covered awesomeness.
These were different caramels to try, Caramel Mou. The first time I had a William Curley caramel, I nearly died trying the filled sea salt caramel bar. It was so unbelievably good. These new caramels recently added to their collection, are chewier and not like the former filled bars.
Assam Caramel Mou
Sweet, sugary caramel infused with very nice hints of floral Assam tea notes. Big tropical passion fruit flavors as well with the floral notes. Buttery richness comes along and finishes in the palate. This is delicate, and flavorful caramel. Very sweet and sugary, but not unwelcomed. Simply gorgeous.
Sea Salt Caramel Mou
Rich, buttery caramel, sweet and salty, more of a chocolate presence and linging taste of chocolate. Buttery flavors linger on the finish like the Assam Mou. This one is more balanced with the salt, but still fairly sugary. I love that the chocolate interaction is more noticable on this one. This caramel tasted much more classic.
It's funny how I never really cared that much for caramels before. Not that I didn't like them, but they usually aren't the first things I go for in a sweet shop. But I really love the differences in these two. I love the floral, tropical fruit notes and rich sweetness of the Assam Mou. I equally enjoyed the classic richness and buttery, salty balance of the Sea Salt Mou.
