During my visit to The Chocolate Box in Seattle, I did not neglect my mission to consume as much salted chocolate as humanly possible. While several options were available, I stuck with a locally-made bar: a 72% Cocoa French Grey Sea Salt bar from Lesley’s Gourmet in Bellevue, WA.
The bar is nearly coated with salt on one side, and the intensity of the salt can be a bit overwhelming at first bite as a result.
It appears that there is not any salt mixed in with the chocolate, and as a result, the bites don’t all include a uniform ratio of chocolate and salt flavors. The chocolate itself is firm with a buttery melt; there may be some fruity notes but it’s difficult to tell with the sheer mass of salt included. The bar is passable, but the salt needs to be better distributed.
My quest for the perfect salted chocolate continues.
Salt coated chocolate: yay or nay?
