Caramel Creams or Cow Tales – if you had to pick one, which would it be and why?
Caramel Creams®, quick and easy to pop in my mouth!
Do you have any memories with our products growing up?
I was born in the Dominican Republic so didn’t have access to them growing up.
How do you eat your Caramel Creams? (eg: center first, all in one bite)

Favorite Goetze’s flavor?
Dream Caramel Creams/ Cow Tales flavor or partnership:
Chocolate Almond is my dream flavor but we are a nut-free facility, so I don’t think we will be making that anytime soon!
If you could describe your experience at Goetze’s in one word, what would it be?
