If we could keep one of the recent coffee flavored new products around, Trader Joe’s Vietnamese Coffee Flavored Caramels is the one that gets my vote (ok, and Trader Joe’s Sumatra Coffee Brownies). It’s coffee flavor without being gritty. You can also have this product without getting a buzz from the caffeine. This is the application of coffee that just works.
If you are unfamiliar with Vietnamese coffee, here is what you need to know: it’s strong and it’s very sweet from the sweetened condensed milk. While this product is not strong in the coffee department, it’s sweet and it just works.
The pros: Trader Joe’s Vietnamese Coffee Flavored Caramels are sweet, and have a nice balance between the coffee and other flavors.
The cons: Might be too sweet for some. Might even be better with a touch of salt (but that’s clearly my own sweet and salty preference).
The verdict: …
