So this was one of the free samples I chose with my first Dessert by Deb order a few weeks ago. I wanted to try it but balked a bit at the amount of coconut, so I chose to get a sample instead of a 25g pouch.
Honestly, the coconut here doesn’t bother me, although it does make the cup rather oily. At least it’s natural oil and not melted chocolate chips or something… Anyway! This is more butterscotch than toffee to me. It has a sweet buttery quality to it, but lacks the darker burnt sugar notes that toffee generally has. I think the rooibos make sense here, as rooibos tends to have some caramel-y notes to it which go well with this blend. The coconut maybe seems slightly out of place, but it does add a nice creaminess.
I did overleaf this (as usual) so it’s quite sweet. Plus it was the bottom of the pouch, so I’m sure there was plenty of brown sugar and maple dust.
Overall, it’s pleasant but not something I feel the need to order. The coconut is a little discordant for me, plus it’s a bit too sweet and rich with the coconut oil. But I’m happy to have tried it! :)
