April 28th—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
Some say money makes the world go 'round; others give credit to love. We're putting our money on something we love - chocolate. Sure, we could live in a world without chocolate, but we really don't want to. Especially when bars like Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Caramel & Black Hawaiian Sea Salt are so readily available, and easily affordable, too.
Our Dark Chocolate Caramel & Black Hawaiian Sea Salt bar begins with elegantly rich, wonderfully dark chocolate (70% cacao). It's filled with a buttery, burnt sugar caramel & Hiwa Kai, a blend of sea salt and volcanic charcoal harvested from pristine Hawaiian tide pools - the combination of caramel & sea salt is a classic, and this particular pairing elevates the experience to the sublime. The exterior of the bar is garnished with Maldon sea salt harvested from estuaries in Great Britain, putting the finishing touch on a chocolate bar whose quality belies its terrific price. You could easily pay $6-$8 in an "artisan" chocolate shop for a bar crafted to these specifications. At Trader Joe's, we're selling each three ounce bar, in a nifty box, for $1.99, every day.
