When I wrote my not-so-trendy post this morning I had forgotten that I had a "trendy" post in my back pocket - but this Elizabeth Large post on Starbuck's new salted caramel hot chocolate reminded me.
Is it just me or are there a whole lot of salty chocolates out there right now? Or salty caramels? Trader Joe's sometimes carries a sea salt chocolate, Gourmet is touting these salted chocolate caramels (thank you to Erin's friend LP for sending me that knee-weakening food porn slideshow), and now even Starbucks is in on the deal?
Not that I'm complaining. I like chocolate better when it's doused in a little salt, or when it's wrapped around a salty pretzel.
