When it comes to caramels, this is one that belongs in everyone’s stash. I’d consider this a must have flavour, not only for its representation but for its versatility as well.

Often links go away after time, so here are some points regarding ingredients – FA Caramel is certified free of added DIACETYL, ACETYLPROPIONYL and ACETOINE. No traces were found in testing.
As with many caramels I’ve tried, butterscotch and or alternate blended caramels can bring out the best of this profile, depending on application of course. This FA version is certainly fine mixed on its own, it’s just a lighter flavour and suitable for such applications.
Flavour Notes – Description
Cooked sugars, including browned sugar (butterscotch). Slightly creamy with a textured light roasted background. I also pick up some maltiness, or maltol, with subtle vanilla. It’s a cross between a caramel and a jarred type sauce.
Many have classified this as being partly an ice cream like sauce or syrup. Somewhat soft with little body or weight.
My Uses & Pairings
This is the lightest of my caramels, making it extremely versatile. Due to its lack of richness and butter notes, I’t’s perfect for pairing with creams and or additional caramels or butterscotch. However, this depends on its intended application.
- As a sweetener
- Layer or additive use for certain coffees and tobaccos (Must try)
- Mix with ice creams, creams, custards and other caramels-butterscotch
- Fruits – Excellent with apples or pears
Butterscotch by FA, or even FW salted caramel, adds a nice richness and helps bring out the caramel and buttery notes. It’s not really a solo vape as it needs some extra TLC. But it is a terrific concentrate.
