Dulce de leche fans, those who love the caramel-like sauce made from slow-cooking milk with sugar to a lovely golden brown, should delight in two new flavored versions from Maineís Stonewall Kitchen.

The specialty food maker does a Maple Dulce de Leche, but itís the Espresso Dulce de Leche deep flavor that won us over. Nibbled on its own is an option (2 tablespoons equals 110 calories), but itís also divine with ice cream, a simple cake or dabbed on a breakfast scone.

A 12.5-ounce jar is $6.95 at www.stonewallkitchen.com.
