While that title could, in fact, be simply a list of some of our favorite things, it is actually the name of one of our favorite candies - Trader Joe's Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Butterscotch Caramels.
Developing this candy treat was a treat in itself. It involved a number of tastings, all of them very pleasant, we must admit. And even though we liked them from the first time we popped them in our mouths, we kept tweaking them until we were in love. These were the first butterscotch-flavored caramel candy with sea salt we'd seen anywhere. Sure, sea salt caramels are all the rage, but the addition of butterscotch to the mix really does intensify the flavors and change the experience. It makes the soft caramel a little richer, a little sweeter. The sea salt adds that subtle salty flavor that perfectly complements the sweetness. And then we roll the whole thing in slightly bitter dark chocolate, robustly rounding out the flavors. Sweet-salty-bitter-ahhhhhh.
We're selling each seven ounce, resealable bag of Chocolate Covered Sea Salt Butterscotch Caramels for $3.49, every day. That's a heck of a value for some pretty unique little candies.
