Once considered exotic and cutting-edge, the combination of dark chocolate, caramel and sea salt has settled in and become a classic. Somehow, it's managed to stay relevant even as it becomes commonplace. Perhaps that's due to the fact that it's one of the most delicious flavor combinations in culinary history. One of our first forays into this flavor was Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels, which we first introduced in 2009 and which are anxiously anticipated annually. Buttery, smooth, creamy caramels. Drenched in deep, rich, Belgian dark chocolate. Sprinkled with natural salt from the Dead Sea. A triumph of confectionary genius. The trifecta of sweet-savory indulgence. The triple crown of candy creativity.
Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels are the perfect pick-me-up after a day of holiday shopping; we find them especially satisfying when accompanied by a cup of hot coffee or tea. In case you're inclined to share, each box contains 12 individual pieces. If you're really in a sharing kind of mood, these make excellent gifts. And they come with an excellent price, too -- still just $4.99 for each 6.3 ounce box of 12 two-bite treats.
