I have to admit that I was a little worried about what chocolate laced with a little salt might taste like. Then again, I was similarly skeptical about strawberries and balsamic vinegar which turned out to be dynamite. To get right to the point, a little salt wakes up your taste buds just before they receive a loving layer of deep and rich dark chocolate. It’s a sophisticated way to get your fix. And if you aren’t keen to try the fleur de sel, Lindt has lots of other dark chocolate specialties including Orange Intense and Chili. About $3.50 at most major grocery stores.
