Chocolove – going Southern and local for inspiration?

Last week’s news post was about regional American candies. Today, I’m sharing a Serious Eats post that suggests that Chocolove’s new bars, ?Peach & Pecan and Salted Peanut,?were crafted with a focus on the local specialties of Georgia.

While the former definitely sounds Georgian (what’s more associated with Georgia than peaches, or more southern than pecan pie?), I’m a little more dubious about the latter, as peanuts and chocolate aren’t exactly a new combination. Still, I’ll keep my eyes peeled for these new bars in stores, regardless of their original inspiration.
