Trader Joe's Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Caramels

I just finished off the box of Trader Joe's Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Caramels, and felt moved to blog.

These are great. More please!

Actually, i do agree with the assessment on the site i linked to above -- they are not perfect, i have had better caramels -- but damn, I sure do like caramel + dark chocolate + big crunchy hunks of salt. Short of a trip back to LA's Little Flower Candy Company, which sold me the best freaking salt caramels I've ever eaten, this massmarket treat will most certainly do.

i just hope they don't sell them only during the winter holidays...

Have you had the dark chocolate sea salt almonds from TJs? Un-frickin'-believable!

Honestly, I've been disappointed with TJ's recently as far as their confections. They obviously do a lot of private label, but seem more concerned with keeping the cost down versus getting real, quality products. I mean, who uses milk and "natural butter flavoring" in caramels? Cream and real butter all the way! Try Bequet or Little Flower (or heck, my own, Katherine Anne) for a non-chocolate covered caramel; if you like exotic flavors, Vosges makes excellent chocolate-covered caramels; and otherwise, Fran's is always a good choice.
