Chocolove xoxox Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cup
Chocolove xoxo milk chocolate counts as some of my very favorite chocolate in the world. I really like their dark chocolate, too, but their milk chocolate is transcendent. So I always have high expectations for a new Chocolove xoxox product. As one of those people who is wild for caramel, this new Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Cup sounded entrancing. It was, for the most part. The caramel is a really good consistency, as soft as possible before it loses structure and becomes a syrup. My only complaint--and this comes as a surprise--too much salt. Usually I can't get enough and tend to prefer foods that others complain are too salty. Here, though, the salt was a distraction. I wanted those perfect flavors of dark chocolate and caramel and then just a few granules of salt on top to offset the sweet. The salted caramel simply felt oversalted. That said, I would happily each a bunch more of these. Everyone should try at least one.
