A classic flavor that we are spotting everywhere AND one of my all-time favorites is caramel!

Since 2009, there has been a 58% increase in caramel flavored new product introductions in North America.

Here are a few new products to consider.

  • International Delight Fat Free & Sugar Free Caramel Marshmallow Coffee Creamer—a must add to my grocery list, especially since it is fat free and sugar free.

  • Archer Farms Pecan Caramel Brownies—looks like a decadent afternoon caramel delight.

  • Smuckers Simple Delight Salted Caramel Topping—recipes using this product include salted caramel cheesecake bites, salted caramel apple muffins and salted caramel whoopie pies.

  • Butter & Scotch Green Chile Margarita Caramel Corn—loving the combination of sweet and heat right now and this snack sounds like it just might do the trick!

  • ThinkThin Salted Caramel Lean Protein & Fiber Bar—described as the perfect balance between protein and fiber, then you add caramel and it’s a 150 calorie gooey delight.
