Salazon Salted Chocolate At Roots, Mom's, David's
If you tried the Lindt salted chocolate at Target, you should grab a Salazon chocolate bar at one of the local organic markets.
Salazon is a local company that makes chocolates in Pennsylvania. They're adult bars. Dark chocolate bar with salt on the outside. Larger crystals and dusted in a layer across the bottom, not mixed into the chocolate like the sea salt Lindt.
The flavor depends on how you pop it in your mouth -- chocolate then salt, salt then chocolate, depending on which side you put on your tongue. It's fun. It's expensive, but it's a deep chocolate taste with a salty contrast.
Salazon is based in Eldersburg, MD. They sell through Roots in Clarksville, Mom's Organic Market in Jessup, and David's Natural Market in Columbia. Roots had all three varieties -- the salt, a version with salt and pepper, and a version with salt and turbinado sugar.
