Vosges Black Salt Caramel Bar

This is probably the most “classic” chocolate bar I’ve ever seen made by Vosges. Everyone is familiar with the caramel chocolate candy bar. Still they find a way to add a touch of their exotic sensibilities to it by adding some sea salt into the mix. Still, when I first saw this bar I was curious how they didn’t add some other more strange item into the mix. Interested to see how they pulled off something more mainstream, I finally bought one to try.

The dark chocolate is a gorgeous, deep, rich brown color with an intense gloss. Very sleek and sophisticated. The bar is thin like the Blood Orange Caramel, as it snaps easily and there’s only a delicate well inside holding the caramel.

You bite down on the bar and the chocolate easily gives way to a rich caramel interior. You immediately taste the salt, then the rich buttery notes of the caramel, which are superb. The chocolate then overtakes the flavor with lovely creamy notes with a flavor that’s more coffee and cream. They all blend beautifully on your tongue and give a great flavor sensation. Wowza, what a caramel chocolate bar this is.

Like the Blood Orange Caramel, this bar is a step up from a more traditional candy bar. The excellent quality of ingredients makes this bar a real standout and really worth enjoying sometime if you want to splurge.
