I wish I knew about these back when I had braces! It was difficult for me to eat caramel items if they were too hard and were able to stick to your brackets or teeth. These are so soft and chewy. Such a perfect caramel taste it has. I just wish for the money, we could get more caramels. I keep finding them for $3.50-$4.99 for their regular size bag; which is pretty small. Still worth getting though, especially when there is a discount.
