Salty Black Licorice & Salty Caramel Duo
When it comes to candy, two is better than one.
Instead of just one unusual, incredible-tasting candy -- how about two? First, Jacobsen Salt Co. brings us their latest discovery from Scandinavia -- licorice with a salty twist. It's a toothsome black licorice with notes of caramel and molasses flecked with perfectly flaky sea salt.
Next up, a perfectly burnished caramel, both soft and chewy, with sparks of salt throughout. We believe all things sweet are better with a sprinkling of salt -- and ever since Jacobsen set about harvesting the first great American salt (straight from Oregon's cold waters using traditional methods), they've been daydreaming about crafting a caramel to highlight it. They keep things simple: slowly toasting sugar with local butter until it’s melted and golden before stirring in heavy cream and generous amounts of flaky sea salt.
