My sister and I went to the West Point Market in Akron, Ohio, on President's Day. We don't live in Akron--we live 28.57 miles away--which is far for grocery shopping. Instead, we treat it as a destination, a jaunt, a trip into the fantasy land of grocery shopping, and we only do it about once every two months.
It's worth the 28.57 mile drive (which we while away discussing our children, our writing, our students), because they have lovely produce, interesting canned or jarred items, fabulous prepared food, and the best selection of chocolate that I know about in the Cleveland area. (If there's a better, please let me know.)
They also have a small selection of Fran's Chocolates, made by the talented Fran Bigelow in Seattle, and in particular they have her salted caramels, the Smoked Salt Caramels above, as well as Grey Salt. Her amazing caramels have made me rethink my chocolate-is-the-only-possible-candy position. They're creamy in their caramelness, piquantly chocolate, with some salty crunchiness going on. My only problem with them is that there are only 6 of them in their package.
You'll notice in the picture that two of them are gone, and if the picture was better, you'd see that the end of the package is a little bent. This is because my sister and I mangled the package to get out some caramels to eat on the way home. Next time we'll take our Swiss Army knives.
