Knipschildt Chocopologie Bar with Burnt Caramel and Hawaiian Sea Salt

This great little bar from Knipschildt is made of 71% Ecuadorian single bean chocolate, with a thin layer of caramel (I couldn’t discern any “burnt” taste), and a random sprinkling of Hawaiian sea salt on the bottom.  It’s a tad salty for my taste, and there’s a dearth of caramel, but, in spite of those criticisms, I enjoyed it, and found it very satisfying.  I know it sounds counter-intuitive, but the better the chocolate the less it takes to sate my cravings. This is a high quality bar, and pretty, as they marble a small amount of burnt-caramel-colored white chocolate across the top of the 12 squares.  The packaging isn’t particularly remarkable, with its small photograph of what I can only assume is a pile of sea salt, but don’t let that deter you.  

I found it at JFK airport for $10.00 for four ounces, but you can get it from their website for $9.00.  There are three other flavors in this “Chocopologie” line (mint leaves, “mocha coffee,” and rose water, each with a different  single bean chocolate). It was a bit of a splurge, but worth it for the experience. No chocopology needed.
