I love salted caramels - nothing wrong with them.

However Wensleydale Cheese with Salted Caramel?

<shakes head at Waitrose>

It's a Christmas abomination I tell you shock

I've done a salted caramel glaze for my ham, it's delicious!

Until we have salted caramel flavored bacon, this obsession has not gone far enough.

I have tasted salted caramel cheese (not the Waitrose one to be fair), it's just wrong. But if you did fancy some why not pair it with Salted Caramel Peanuts or Pumpkin spice salted caramels washed down with a cup of salted caramel tea

I love salted caramel, especially ice cream and pierre herme macarons but I had a salted caramel latte last week and it was rubbish. Agree it has gone too far. The salted caramel wensleydale sounds yuck.

Oh god. Are they still open?

CaptainAnkles Wed 24-Dec-14 16:18:15

What next, salted caramel pulled pork?

Flavoured cheeses per se are for cheese philistines, salted caramel or otherwise.

Tzibeleh Wed 24-Dec-14 16:22:06

Flavoured cheese is an abomination Full Stop.

The Tesco finest version of Baileys with salted caramel is the nicest drink I've ever had in my life.

Morrisons do lovely salted caramel cookies too.

As you can tell, I like salted caramel fgrin

Pumpkin spice salted caramel bacon. Served in individual jars which you have to smash with a miniature hammer, and tweezers to pick out the slivers of glass. The ultimate in hipster foods grin

YABU. We are having salted caramel Brussel sprouts tomorrow.

Eminybob Wed 24-Dec-14 16:33:06

I just bought some salted caramel truffles from aldi - thought they sounded yum.

THEY ARE NOT TRUFFLES! Truffles are surely ganachey or cakey in the middle these are just choc balls filled with salted caramel. Not a truffle in my book and I was sorely disappointed !

wowfudge Wed 24-Dec-14 16:38:45

Mrsminiver I nearly threw up in spontaneous reaction to that one!

Damn about the Aldi truffles - I've got a box hidden away.

I love salted caramel, but it's not always well executed.

fitflopqueen Wed 24-Dec-14 16:42:14

Salted caramel green tea! yes that's what my Dd is drinking this afternoon, just wrong fhmm

mrsminiverscharlady Wed 24-Dec-14 16:46:13

Philistine grin

I really don't like salted caramel. And I love salt in general, I have a whole cookbook about salt!

So YANBU, it's everywhere and its rank.

reallystuckonthisone Wed 24-Dec-14 16:51:31

I don't find it's ever salty enough for me. But, on balance...salt...caramel - what's not to love?

Ultracrepidarian Wed 24-Dec-14 16:58:38

If your bored of eating salted caramel you can now bathe in it. Philosophy do a yummy salted caramel and hot cocoa shampoo, shower gel and bubble bath.

You can also buy salted caramel candy canes!

We have bought some for our cheese board, I havn't tried it yet and I'm not sure if I will brave it or not grin cheese obsessed dd made me buy it.

squirrelnutmeg Wed 24-Dec-14 17:29:19

Yes too far along with pulled flippin pork!

toffeeboffin Wed 24-Dec-14 17:46:37

Just imagine a cheesecake made with Wensleydale Salted Caramel cheese... Think I am actually a genius grin

I saw salted caramel parsnips for sale today.

Is there anything the shops won't smother in salt and caramel?

Charlieboo30 Wed 24-Dec-14 18:44:09

Aimlessly - was that in Morrisons by any chance? If so, we have bought some! Just imagining it's going to be like honey glazed ones. Last year, we had the frozen Aunt Bessie's ones and they were vile.

When I bought them, the lady on the checkout said she thought they looked disgusting but they'd been selling well. Bet Morrisons are glad she doesn't work for their marketing department...
