Pros: Smooth caramel coffee flavor, sugar free.
Cons: Still contains calories even though it is sugar free. Drats!
My husband picked up Werther's Original Caramel Coffee Sugar Free Hard Candy because he is a diabetic and is always getting those urges for something sweet. He thought this would be a candy he would like and also different from the "norm." Turned out he didn't like them at all and I inherited the bag!
Werther's Original Caramel Coffee Sugar Free Hard Candy
This is another flavor of the original caramel hard candy from Werther's that is a favorite of many people I know. Take the original version, zap the sugar and add some coffee flavoring and you have a new sugar free hard candy!
Werther's Original Caramel Coffee Sugar Free Hard Candy comes in a bag weighting 2,75 ounces and retails for around $1.99 a bag. Each piece of hard candy is sealed individually in a gold foil wrapper.
According to the bag, 5 pieces of candy is considered a serving. One serving of 5 pieces of candy contains 40 calories.
My Thoughts on Werther's Original Caramel Coffee Sugar Free Hard Candy
Although my husband didn't care for the flavor of this candy, I did. I am a coffee lover and love flavored coffees. Maybe that is why I enjoyed the caramel coffee flavor this candy delivers.
This candy is shaped just like the original caramel hard candy but has a darker color added to it alternating with the lighter caramel color giving it a striped design.
I love the flavor. The caramel and coffee flavors are smooth and blend together very well. If you enjoy caramel flavored coffee, you have to give this candy a try. It's great when you want a cup of coffee but can't have one or it's great for a treat anytime of the day or night.
Even though this candy is sugar free, it does contain calories. This is probably the biggest drawback to this candy. However, the calories are much less than a regular piece of hard candy containing sugar.
Overall, I enjoy a piece or two of Werther's Original Caramel Coffee Sugar Free Hard Candy every now and then. It's a good way indulge in an imaginary cup of coffee in the afternoons for me! I think that it is a good alternative for diabetics also to have something sweet without consuming sugar.
