Thorntons Pearls Salted Caramel (Thorntons) By @SpectreUK

Thorntons very kindly sent me this big box of their Salted Caramel Pearls to try. It seems fairly rare that we get sent stuff to blog about, so when we do we really do appreciate it (hint, hint!). That's not to say that this will be a biased viewpoint of the product, I'm too brutally honest for that. If I like something I'll tell you that I do and why, if I don't then I try to be constructive in a "Strictly Come Dancing judge" kind of way, rather than one of those nasty TV judges that may say it tastes like something the cat dragged in.

For instance, when we first started going out together (many… many moons ago…) Cinabar asked me if the new expensive foundation makeup that she was wearing "made her face look orange," I said it did… I was unpopular for a while, but at least she didn't go outside looking like Gossamer from the Looney Tunes. She now knows that she can always count on me to be brutally honest. Although my brutal honesty did make me a few enemies in my last place of work!

Anyway, these Thorntons Salted Caramel Pearls look like little sweet and salty chocolate balls of gooeyness (ah… South Park). There may be close to a million of these Pearls in the bag within the box (or maybe not). I may be forced to eat these Pearls in more than one sitting. Cinabar mentioned something about sharing, but I think she was just having a laugh!?

On unwrapping the first blue and bronze rounded wrapper the milk chocolate Salted Caramel Pearl inside was roughly two centimetres in diameter (I say roughly because I'm not going dig out my vernier caliper from my tool box). It burst gooey salted caramel on instant impact of my teeth and filled my mouth with a joyous flavour as the milk chocolate melted in with the sweet and salty caramel. Sharing! Phah! I'm just glad I went to the gym…
