Werther's Original Sugar Free - #WerthersSugarFree Review and Giveaway

I received products for review from Storck.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.


Whoo hoo! October marks the start of National Caramel Month. That's just another reason for me to love October. I like me some caramels.

Speaking of caramels, Werther's Original is one of my favorite candies because of its creamy, rich caramel taste. My mom is a big fan of them too and I usually gift her a couple bags on her birthday.

When I was asked to try Werther's Original Sugar Free hard candies, I was on board but not without reservations. Sugar free candies aren't normally my thing. That's because, to me, they taste even sweeter than the originals and always leave an aftertaste.

I shared the Werther's Original Sugar Free tasting experience with some friends and family when they were over at my house for a gathering. They went over well. Werther's Original Sugar Free caramels taste mighty similar to the originals and don't leave an aftertaste. In fact, I wouldn't be able to tell that they were sugar free if it wasn't for the wording on the packaging.

Although I'm not absolutely sure because I haven't confirmed it, I think Werther's Original Sugar Free candies are a bit smaller than Werther Originals. I heard mostly positive feedback from everyone who tasted the sugar free candies. Not one person could tell they were sugar free. The overall flavor winner was Caramel Coffee, with Caramel Apple coming in close second. I liked them all and would probably purchase each flavor with the exception of Caramel Cinnamon. It doesn't taste bad but I'm not a big fan of cinnamon to begin with.

Each Werther's Original Sugar Free candy is individually wrapped and they come in five delicious flavors - Classic Caramel, Caramel Apple, Caramel Coffee, Caramel Chocolate, and Caramel Cinnamon. Each piece is eight calories and they are made with the sugar alternative Isomalt and the sweetener Acesulfame-K.

I know diabetics generally purchase sugar free candies as part of their snacking regimen. A recent Sugar Free Satisfaction Survey of 1000 adults with diabetes showed that 78% of those found the Werther's Original Sugar Free candies enjoyable. I don't personally have diabetes so I can't speak on their behalf but I know I'd purchase and eat Werther's Original Sugar Free candies as a low-calorie satisfying candy. After sampling them, I can now say I've found a sugar free candy I really like.


Win It!

One person will win a Werther's Original Sugar Free prize pack that includes:
Four bags of Werther's Original Sugar Free Caramels
Ten $.075 off coupons
$25 AMEX Gift Card

*This is a Rafflecopter giveaway open to residents of the USA.*
