Karamell-Küche

A Disney World trip is not complete without a visit to Karamell-Küche for some take-home treats.  This ritual always includes ogling their glass display cases filled with delicious caramel treats.  On this trip there were a couple of things that caused me to do a double take.   While I’ve always seen these three types of caramel apples in KK’s display case…

This time I noticed a new kind of caramel apple was added to the mix…

 

These looked really good but check out that price.  $13.99 for a caramel apple?!?!  No way!

I was though tempted to buy one of these…

 

I was too full to eat this now though, having just had a 5 course meal, and it didn’t look like something that would travel well.  So I passed on the delicious-looking cupcake but made a mental note to try this on my next trip.

I did though buy my usual take-home treats of caramel popcorn…

This fresh batch of caramel corn smelled incredible!

And I also always bring home some of these chocolate and sea salt covered caramels, as they are a family favorite…

And the last take-home treat that I always get for myself is this…

I’ve been buying these ever since I first set foot in Karamell-Küche back in 2010.  While I’ve always thought that $3.99 was a bit steep for a piece of candy, I really loved these so I bought them anyway.  But I justified their purchase because they were large enough to last me at home for quite awhile…taking an occasional bite whenever I was especially missing my happy place (aka Disney World).

However, unlike all my previous visits to Karamell-Küche , this time I could no longer justify their purchase.  Though the price was still $3.99, the caramel rolls had shrunk…

The caramel rolls are now not much bigger than a quarter and also thinner.

They no longer filled up the paper cup like they used to…

I was so disappointed!!  And in protest of their downsizing, for the first-time ever I left Karamell-Küche without a single caramel roll.
