When I spotted the Béquet Caramels in Costco on my trip to Montana this summer, I immediately thought that they looked delicious and I had to try them. Since they’re a local product (made in Montana), I’m not sure how widely available they are, so they might not be the best item to review from that perspective. That’s unfortunate, because (spoiler alert!) they’re incredible. Read on to find out why I loved them so much!
Other sweet caramel treats from Costco are the Almond Roca Sea Salt With Caramel, Marie Morin Caramel Flan, Delici Sea Salt Caramel Mousse, Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn, Dessert Italiano Caramel Macchiato, Cretor’s Chicago Mix Popcorn, Sander’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, Edward Marc Snappers and the Starbucks Caramel Macchiato Coffee Enhancer.
Location in Store
We bought these at the Kalispell, Montana Costco and the item number is 1374674. They’re located in the snack section near the front of the store.
Wow, these Béquet Caramels are amazing! It took me about six weeks after buying them to open my bag, but the caramels were still nice and soft and chewy. One downside to the softness is that most of the caramels were kind of squished/misshapen, but who cares when they taste like this!
The caramels are sweet, rich, buttery and salty, all in perfect balance. If I had to criticize one thing about them, I’d say they may be sweet for some people out there, but it’s hard to find too much fault given that sugar is literally the main ingredient in caramel.
Texture wise the caramels are quite smooth. The package shows them covered in big sea salt crystals, but they just look like plain caramels. They do have some sea salt crystals in them though, and while they don’t add a ton of crunch, it’s certainly noticeable.
I’ll admit, I’m a big fan of caramel everything, but I love these Béquet Caramels. They taste like something you’d buy at a fancy boutique chocolatier.
The 484-gram bag costs $13.49 USD at Costco, which isn’t bad for a bag of high quality caramels like this.
The bag reseals which is nice because then I don’t worry about caramels spilling all over my pantry even though each caramel is individually wrapped. The best before date on the caramels is about eight months from when I purchased them. The bag states that refrigeration will extend freshness.
I would absolutely give these as a gift, all of my family who tried them thought they were amazing. Kids might not appreciate these quite as much as adults but if you’re someone who enjoys a high-quality sea salt caramel, you’ll love these.
Three caramels contain 170 calories, nine grams of fat, 230 milligrams of sodium, 25 grams of carbohydrates, zero grams of fiber, 18 grams of sugar and zero grams of protein. I’m actually surprised that there isn’t more sugar and carbohydrates in three of these. One is all I need to feel satisfied!
They’re high in calories and fat but that’s to be expected.
I like that the ingredients list is short and sweet but don’t love the fructose and “natural flavor” that’s in the caramels. Natural flavor is used to describe a flavor enhanced that comes from a plant or animal souce and they can be full of chemicals and additives.
The caramels contain milk but are gluten-free and nut-free.
Must buy (unless you hate sweets)!
These are really delicious caramels that I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase again.
