    Does anyone else agree with me and find that sweets taste so much better without salt added - to me the salt seems to ruin a perfectly good sweet

    If ever there was a ridiculous, self indulgent idea to make junk food even unhealthier this is it. I think it started in America and of course we in the UK just had to introduce it.

    It's as stupid as sprinkling sugar on chips and bears no comparison with the delicious Far Eastern recipes where they know exactly how to blend different exotic tastes without promoting hypertension, diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

    and women are silly...

    I thought threads died automatically after the first 3 strikes.

    Anyway, plebs think sea salt in chocolate was invented this decade. There are
    many uses of cacao which were prevalent way before the white man invaded
    and pillaged the continent.

    And, no, chocolate wasn't invented by Mr. Hershey, you idiots. Also, his cousin
    Monsieur Ovaltine didn't either. And same goes for Herr Marabou.

    I can appreciate salt and vinegar crisps, pop and Smarties as much as the rest of the cultured locals. I'm just not pretentious about it. 😛

    What would possess anyone to add salt to anything sweet?...well except maybe an apple possibly, on occasion in a pinch.

    But Pasteur invented pasteurization. I'll give you three guesses who invented homogenization and vulcanization. Hint: it was not Mr. Homo or Mr. Spock.

    Today I bought a chocolate muffin while grocery shopping, placed it in my bag and somehow managed to crush it on the way home. Now,who cares if it's salted or unsalted when it's crushed? Better question, who cares about anything that doesn't concern themselves?

    Wrong, 1 vote for salted caramel here.

    No matter how you go on this, salted caramel is a thing, not going away anytime soon.

    Salted chocolate, not so much.

    No, but Cadbury chocolate is just horrible. Sorry, JMO.
