Welcome to Day #6 of Chocolate and Salt Theme Week.

Today's Milk Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt chocolate eggs were part of a 5-flavor assortment. This petite dozen were made in Belgium, packaged in a miniature (compostable) egg crate, and distributed by Tony's Chocolonely Inc. (New York, NY).

Milk Chocolate Caramel Sea Salt

Aroma notes for this solid egg included: milk chocolate, caramel and very faint crisped rice, vanilla and nut. The texture was creamy smooth with crunchy caramel bits.

Flavor notes included: Creamy sweet milk chocolate with sparkles of caramel/butterscotch that lingered into the finish. 

These milk chocolates were nicely executed and were made with a slightly higher percentage cacao (32%) chocolate than most mass market novelty chocolates contain. 

Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt

These dark chocolate eggs had a smooth dark chocolate aroma and texture. The smooth base dark chocolate was interspersed with tiny bits of almond and sea salt. Not too sweet, not too salty.

The flavor was unexpectedly rich and deep with a very faint, fleeting earth note in the finish. Dark fans will enjoy the choice of 51% cacao. (This is darker than usual for a foil-wrapped novelty chocolate confection.)
