Daelman's Caramel Wafers taste remarkably unlike I expected them to. I imagined something crispy and sickly sweet. It turned out though that these tasted like neither of those things. The caramel brought a soothing savory richness and the wafer cookie had a satisfying chew that I really needed. Yes, I said needed. And I meant it. Did things just get weird?
The overall flavor combination reminded me of one of my favorite guilty pleasure foods; super processed still warm snicker doodle cookies from the food court in the mall. You know what cookies I'm talking about. The ones the size of your head (and yes they must be this size). Sooo relaxing after a long day of wandering around in chaos. I guess that's what made these caramel wafers the perfect stress reliever after the week that I've had. They hit those sweet/chewy/salty therapeutic cookie spots just right.
If you find yourself having a week like mine, give these cookies a try. They just might help bring your center back. And if not, you can always add booze.
Or wait... I mean milk. Milk goes with cookies...right? *cough*Kahlua does too*cough*
