Will someone please do us a favour and tell us what the difference between toffee and caramel is? Isn't caramel soft textured and toffee harder set? There has to be a clear definition - if you know it drop us a line @ChocMission because we are totally none the wiser. The reason we bring this debate up is because today we got the pleasure of trying these new Mentos Choco Caramel. You may recall it wasn't that long ago we tried out the Mentos Choco Mint Caramel - you can see that review HERE.
These Mentos Choco Caramel can be found in most UK supermarkets - try WHSmith or Asda if you are struggling. If you look hard enough you should be able to find these on sale in 113.0g packs of 3. The packaging and wrapper is nicely differentiated from the rest of the Mentos range - a nice shade of gold gives it good stand out against the rest of the Mentos packets though out of their wrapper you wouldn't be able to identify side by side next to the chocolate mint version.
Overall we couldn't quick make our minds up on these Mentos Choco Caramel. On one hand we didn't think they were particularly great - certainly average tasting at best. That said we couldn't help by munch our way through them as soon as we opened them. We also certainly wouldn't turn down a pack again if we were offered another. If you were to compare them to the likes of the Cadbury Eclairs taste wise they probably pale in comparison. Don't be fooled though these wont be the first chocolate caramels you ever try. Certainly worth giving a try if you like the sound of them.
