President's Choice Dulce de Leche

Every year at this time, before Christmas, President's Choice comes out with a number of new and interesting food products. This year is no different, and the first of the bunch that I saw, that I was interested in anyways, was this caramel creme spread. Dulce de Leche is a milk-based syrup popular in Latin American (President's Choice sourced this dulce de leche from Argentina), one prepares it by slowly heats sweetened condensed milk (often still in the can) to produce something very similar in flavour to what North Americans call caramel. You can use it as a spread on bread or toast or waffles, as a crepe filling, or as a filling or sauce for various cakes and other desserts. The ingredient listing of this version is whole milk, sugar, corn syrup, sodium bicarbonate, potassium sorbate and artificial flavour.
