June is National Candy Month and what better way to celebrate than with some guilt-free candy? My family received a sampling of 4 varieties of Werther's Original Sugar Free Caramels, which only have 3g carbs and 8 calories per piece. Two were classic flavors . . . the Original Hard Candies and the Caramel Coffee. The others were two exciting new flavors . . . Caramel Cinnamon and Caramel Apple. When I saw these two new varieties of Werther's, all I could think about was how perfect they would be for the fall holidays!
I have always loved Werther's Original caramels, but I have to be honest that I was skeptical about how good the sugar-free versions would taste. I have found in the past that sugar-free candies usual have a strange aftertaste. That is surprisingly not the case with these Werther's. I could not tell the difference between the sugar-free Werther's from the original candy. I was not alone in feeling this way. My husband whole-heartedly agreed, as did our children, who would never have known these candies were sugar-free if they had not read the text on the wrappers. 780 out of 1,000 diabetics, who took part in a Sugar Free Satisfaction Survey, also found the Werther's Sugar Free Caramels to be enjoyable, after more than 500 respondents said they did not enjoy most sugar-free candies they've tried in the past.
Of the four flavors we tried, everyone's opinions differed about which variety was their favorite. My husband and I both agree that the Original Sugar Free Caramel was our favorite. Our 9 year old son seemed to just love the Sugar Free Caramel Coffee, while our 6 year old twins liked the Sugar Free Caramel Apple the most. I had never tasted the flavor combination of cinnamon and caramel before. It was surprisingly good and I would say that the Sugar Free Caramel Cinnamon was my second favorite of the bunch.
