Chocolate + caramel

Whoa. Have you tried this chocolate caramel bar from Trader Joe's yet? It's a new guilty pleasure of mine—squares of dark chocolate with a soft, gooey caramel filling, and salty bits of black sea salt crystals here and there.  It's not the fanciest chocolate, or the most expensive (I've paid $7.00 for a bar of Voseges chocolate) but it's a a nice exotic chocolate experience at a nice price.  I used to be a milk chocolate fan but I've since gone to the dark side, and crave that intense chocolate flavor that only darker chocolates deliver. This bar has 70% cacao, which is about as dark as I go (No bitter chocolate for me!). It caught my eye with its cool and unusual packaging.
