Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Salted Caramel Theme Week.

Today's Organic Belgian Milk Chocolate (sea salt and caramel) bar, was festooned with a sea of caramel and sea salt pieces.

This Nirvana Belgian Chocolates bar was made in Belgium, with Organic and Fairtrade Certified ingredients, for Belgium's Chocolate Source (Milton, MA). Oh, did I mention this was Belgian chocolate?

Note: The bar contains glucose syrup, but is labeled as gluten-free. Glucose syrup can be made from corn, tapioca, potato, sorghum or wheat starch. However, even if made from wheat starch, this sweetener is fairly heavily processed, and the processing generally reduces any gluten to very low levels.

Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Salted Caramel Theme Week.

Dulce de Leche is a cooked down caramel confection (made with either milk and sugar, or sweetened condensed milk).

This caramel featured prominently in today's Dulce de Leche bar from Bissinger's (St. Louis, MO).

This "38% milk chocolate, creamy caramel, cinnamon and a touch of smoked fleur de sel" bar contained pockets of soft caramel—the kind of filling that forms tiny, sweet golden brown "icicles" after you bite into the chocolate.

On the back of this gluten free, bar made with Non-GMO ingredients was a constellation of tiny, twinkling smoked sea salt (fleur de sel) crystals.
