Review: Lancaster Vanilla and Caramel Soft Cremes

Lancaster Vanilla and Caramel Soft Cremes are a step back to Hershey's roots (before he ever started making Hershey's chocolate bars, Milton Hershey established the Lancaster Caramel Company) and feature a swirled blend of vanilla and caramel soft candy.

An 8-oz package was $3.99.

As far as caramel candies go, these have a nice, buttery aroma and are surprisingly soft like taffy. They have a melt-in-your-mouth quality and when I popped one in, it started to deform almost immediately with very little pressure. While it might be tempting, I'd advise against chewing on these as they'll definitely stick to your teeth.

Like they smell, there's a rich, buttery flavor to Lancaster Caramel Soft Cremes as well as a bit of creaminess. They're not overly sweet and have a distinguishing vanilla flavor (I'm not sure that they actually contain vanilla as the ingredients just list "natural flavors.").

Overall, Lancaster Vanilla and Caramel Soft Cremes are pretty enjoyable and satisfying to eat. I especially like the smooth, melt-in-your-mouth feeling and that they weren't too sweet. The vanilla gives them a little something extra over your regular caramel candies.
