Latest in the growing assortment of flavoured milks filling our supermarket shelves is this new Salted Caramel Brownes Chill. According to the website, this “insanely great drink is a triumph of West Aussie ingenuity”. Hmm. I didn’t think that WA invented salted caramel, but that’s what it says…
Caramel is my favourite milkshake flavour, but it just doesn’t seem to translate well to pre-packaged milks. It may appear as a limited edition, but is usually weak in flavour and never stays for long…maybe the demand just isn’t there?
So how is this attempt? I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it, although it still suffers from not having enough flavour. The salt is there, but thankfully is quite subtle – weak caramel with too much salt would be hideous.
This is definitely worth trying if salted caramel is your thing, but even though I found it pleasant enough I have no urge to try it again.
