I picked up this Vosges Black Salt Caramel Bar at Cost Plus World Market, one of my favorite new candy sources. It contained “black Hawaiian sea salt, burnt sugar caramel”, and a 70% dark chocolate.
Like their Blood Orange Caramel Bar, the caramel here was oozy and runny. It definitely made the bar messier, but goodness did it have an intoxicating mouthfeel! The caramel sat limpidly on my tongue and was velvety in texture.
The caramel in this bar was extremely buttery with just a hint of saltiness and a nice smokiness. It paired quite nicely with the dark chocolate.
The chocolate here was divine, as expected from Vosges: it was super dark with a sharp snap and a smooth, matte melt. It tasted lightly smoky and dusky.
The combination of caramel and chocolate was addictively sweet and salty. For me, though, the caramel made this just a hair too sweet in the finish. An OM.

I love the flavor of the Vosges caramel bars, but oh what a mess they make with that runny caramel. I wind up eating almost the whole bar in one sitting as that caramel oozes all over my hands.
I really need to try more vosges bars, but I like prefer the miniatures, and I haven’t seen any filled versions in that size.
