There must have been some trepidation the first time someone attempted to combine salty and sweet. I for one was apprehensive about the combination for a long time myself except whenever I would protest the idea people would come back to me with one sterling unavoidable argument: chocolate covered pretzels.
How could one ever even consider arguing the old salty versus sweet paradigm when chocolate covered pretzels offer such a perfect wholly realized version of flavor perfection? Clearly there was no argument to be had against the idea anymore. Freeing yourself to the charms of the salty sweet combination will likely open all kinds of complex and interesting tastes to your pallet. (I have taken to dipping french fries in maple syrup from time to time.) Still, all of the experimentation in the world will likely mean nothing compared to the charm of chocolate topping a salty crunchy pretzel.
The Candy Store has a lot of really interesting chocolate covered pretzels in their line. From the added saltiness of a layer of nuts to the more richly sweet flavor of white chocolate. Each pretzel has a special flavor and each will definitely remind you of the unyielding charms of inventive taste combinations.
