Love for the Flavors (Caramel)
It was a fun journey bringing vanilla, caramel and cinnamon to a cup of coffee in Starbucks® Natural Fusions. I want to share how each of those flavors means something special to me, starting with intense, smooth, sweet caramel!
There are different types of caramel and forms that it can come in, plus it can be made with different ingredients that change the flavor. Most of the time you see caramel used in sweet goods. The caramel flavor of the food or beverage is dependent on the point of caramelization reached. It depends on if you are looking for more of a burned-sugar flavor or a caramel flavor with sweet softness. When I dream of caramel, it is always as a bowl of rich vanilla ice cream with a thick drizzle of some salty buttery caramel sauce poured on top.
