      I agree with Sams_Rosie below - this is more like a toffee, albeit a very hard and glossy one. Kind of reminds me of Werther's Original. Very tasty and nice but not really what I was looking for.

      It tasted good. However, it didn't taste like butterscotch.

      This was great! It tastes more like heath bar filling, it would be really good dipped chocolate. I accidently let the temp get to 350 but it still tasted great.
