Oblea de Cajeta


This treat is totally south of the border, in my case really south since you’d have to go past the United States and down to Mexico. These Oblea de Cajeta from Mexico really shows how diverse candy can be and still be interesting. I’ve never seen anything like this before in my life, yet it also doesn’t feel that weird. While people in Mexico may be used to these, for me it’s something brand new, and I’m really interested in trying it.

What you get is caramel sandwiched between something that resembles a communion wafer. This is a really fascinating way to make caramel easier to eat, as well as adding in a new texture that I’m not used to finding in candies. You might be asking, what's the deal with the goat on the package. Well from what I've been told, the caramel in this treat is made from goat's milk. There you go, a gimmick within a gimmick. I've never had caramel delivered between two wafers like this in my life, and add to that the fact that its goat's milk caramel, I have something to talk about. The goats milk caramel is unlike many of the cow’s milk caramel that I’ve tasted before, it seems to have a stronger flavour, and it might be a little creamier too.

I'm not too sure if you'll ever see this treat in Canada or the USA, but if you do, you might want to try it. This candy has a really smooth, milky caramel and the subtle texture of the wafer adds something really nice. These Oblea de Cajeta aren't bad.
