Yes We Can! Eat Fran’s Salted Caramels

Happy Inauguration Day! Celebrate with President Obama’s favorite sweets (according to, Fran’s Salted Caramels.

If you’re not from Seattle, where Fran’s is headquartered, you can probably find them at your local Whole Foods. That’s where I bought the one I’ve had (it was too tempting to wait to take home for a proper photo; I ate it in the store).

It’s okay that I love Obama more because he has fine taste in chocolates, right?

Note: I wrote this piece weeks ago in mid-December but decided it to postdate it for inauguration day. I ended up getting scooped by the NY Times, which wrote a great piece on salted caramels that also had insightful thoughts on how food trends work.?
