This bite-sized soft candy is iconic for most French people. They’ve been eagerly unwrapping them since they were young children. Not only for the taste, but also for joke hidden inside the wrapper. (It’s like a popsicle with a joke on the stick, but better because it’s a French candy!)
Caramel is the original taste of Carambar. And with caramel as the primary flavor of the Carambar caramel, it’s simple: you love them or you hate them. (It’s an ongoing debate among French people.) Those that hate them gravitate naturally to the Carambars fruits (fruit flavored Carambars), since no one can cut Carambar out of their life completely! A life without Carambar has much less charm.)
Fruit-filled Carambars are also available for purchase in Le Marché.
