Trader Joe's Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels
Do not buy these caramels. I repeat: Do not buy them. You will see them on the store shelves, tucked in with the rest of the seasonal treats, and at first you will be charmed by their packaging. That font! Those colors! That sweet little lighthouse, like a beacon in the stormy night, drawing you nearer and nearer. You'll be all, I like dark chocolate. And sea salt. And caramel. You will think, just one of these will be a perfect, sweet little bite after dinner. But you will be wrong. Oh, so wrong.
Just try eating one of these.
I blame the lighthouse.
