Lindt Excellence Caramel with a Touch of Sea Salt

This bar was bought from the French market which explains the French packaging. The dark chocolate was of 47% cocoa and within had 5% caramel and 0.3% sea salt

The aroma was rich. With crème brûlée, chocolate, vanilla, butter caramel, almond and malt coming to mind. The taste started with chocolate and slowly the caramel came through, and when crunching the caramel its flavour was lovely. I'm not keen on crunchy toffee/caramel in chocolate but it did taste good

The sea salt, how I long for, came without warning. It was a nice touch. Salt that sparks up unexpectedly and does not overpower nor result in a salty/briny taste, in any dish, is desirable. The caramel was pretty sweet, but I liked its dark taste
