Product: Pretzel Perfection Salted Caramel Clusters – $4.99+
One thing that most everyone who knows me knows about me is that I have this huge crush on anything salted caramel. If it’s salted caramel, I want it in my belly. Seriously…there is no better flavor combination that something that is rich and sweet and salty and yummy and…
I’m making myself hungry again…
So when my Spring (April 2015) Cuisine Cube hit my doorstep this past month, I was really excited about pulling out a little 3 ounce pouch of probably the most perfect snack food in history. But, before I go into that, a quick recap on what Cuisine Cube is all about. You see, Cuisine Cube is a gluten-free subscription box that specializes in pantry/meal items. The best part being, you get full-size products, not just sample sizes. Each month, you get 5-6 items (a breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, dessert, and sometimes a bonus!) inside your little box of wonder from smaller artisan companies that specialize in some gluten-free goodness. Subscriptions start as low as $29.99. So, if you haven’t yet…hop on over to their site and check them out.
Anyway, what I was getting to just before that was that in my Spring cube, the most perfect dessert option arrived. Sure, it was only 3 ounces of goodness, but everything about this treat screamed for me to just EAT IT ALL RIGHT THERE AND RIGHT THEN. I didn’t. I resisted…because I’m a blogger and I need to take pictures…but I now had a new product in my clutches!
The product – Salted Caramel Clusters from Pretzel Perfection. First thing that won me over…the words SALTED CARAMEL. The next thing…the delightful photo of these chocolaty covered pretzel things on the front of the pouch. Chocolate covered pretzels have always been (and will always be) one of my favorite snacks/treats/desserts in the world. I mean, the salty and sweet with rich and crunchy all rolled into one…HELLO!! That’s perfection right there. As the founders of this company must know given the name “Pretzel Perfection.”
Pretzel Perfection was created by Amy Holyk and actually began as a one-person operation in a converted garage. Since then, Pretzel Perfection has grown into an expanding and thriving business, with focus on treats that are made of real food. This company creates products that consumers can trust in and are committed to providing products that are of a higher quality, all-natural, and gluten-free. They take great pride in the fact that they do not use any artificial flavors, colorings, or preservatives.
So…yeah…they had me with pretzels…dark chocolate…salted caramel. They were already winning without me even tasting them yet. But…this was the night. These little bundles of pretzel goodness were my dessert tonight. So, after a healthy dinner…it was time to indulge a little.
The Pretzel Perfection Salted Caramel Clusters are in their line of gourmet pretzel treats. These treats are gluten-free pretzel clusters wrapped with caramel, coated in dark chocolate, and then sprinkled with sea salt and dark chocolate chips. What’s not to love about that, right? EXACTLY!! They look like something I’d make to take into the office…which I love. And I dove right in. First of all, the dark chocolate is a nice bittersweet note to blend with the saltiness of the pretzel and the sea salt that adorns the top of the cluster itself. The dark chocolate chips make for a nice compliment and an added burst of sweetness. The pretzels are crunchy…I mean…dark chocolate coated to perfection. The little square of caramel holes it all together and is the magic in the middle of this cluster. Honestly…if heaven exists…it is inside this bag. I am doing all I can not to raid it and eat the remnants. Seriously.
My roommate and I devoured these in record speed. I had a feeling I was going to like these…even love these…but I LOVE these. Caps lock love. That’s real love right there.
Let’s talk about ingredients, shall we? The Pretzel Perfection Salted Caramel Clusters are made from dark chocolate, caramel, gluten-free pretzels, dark chocolate chips, and sea salt. Yep. that’s it. They are gluten-free and kosher.
As far as nutrition goes…dark chocolate pretzels aren’t going to be good for you in the long run, but…these really are worth a bit of a splurge. A serving size is 1 ounce (about 2 pieces), and the pouch holds 3 servings. One serving will give you 130 calories, 7 grams of fat, 4 grams of saturated fat, 10 mg cholesterol, 420 mg sodium, 18 grams carbohydrates, 1 gram fiber, 11 grams of sugars, and 1 gram of protein. Delicious…and…compared to some desserts…a healthy and delicious option. Or, as they say on their Web site: ” Life is simply too short to not have fun with your food.” Amen.
Seriously…everything about Pretzel Perfection Salted Caramel Clusters is…perfection. The taste, the texture, the ccare and love that goes into the products they make. Oh yeah…I’m a fan. I have seen that these might be sold at Target. You best believe I’ll be on the lookout for them and the other flavors that Pretzel Perfection makes.
Hop on over to Pretzel Perfection‘s web site and check out the products they offer and…if you’re feeling a little crazy…ORDER SOME!! Seriously. All my love and praise to Cuisine Cube for doing dessert oh, so right this month!
