Alpenliebe Candies by Perfetti Van Melle
Imagine my surprise one day to receive this bucket of candies waiting for me after a long day at work. It was the most unique package that I have received so far and upon reaching my doorstep, I immediately took a piece to try it out. Caramel…. Creamy goodness… Instant energy!
Alpenliebe. This was the first time I have heard of this brand so I researched about it. It was made by Perfetti Van Melle; the same company that brought us Mentos, Chupa Chups, Smint and Fruittella. Does any of these candy brands ring a bell? For me, I grew up with Mentos and Fruittella as two of my favorite candies to spend my allowance on.
It comes in two flavors:
I’m a big fan of caramel so I immediately took a liking of it. Strawberry was also good as you can taste the strawberry flavor but… I’d still go back to caramel. Both candies were very creamy! Having caramel alpenliebe one in your mouth feels like a never ending flow of caramel syrup. The same can be said of strawberry alpenliebe; although much less in sweetness than caramel.
Thank you Alpenliebe for making me smile with your delicious candies!
Till next time,
PS: I can’t shake the thought that they resemble the candies in the game Candy Crush Saga. As the voice there would say, Delicious!
