Chocolate lovers can enjoy the heavenly flavors of LA’s Little Flower Candy Company’s sea salt caramels wherever they go. Located in Pasadena, the candy store offers these handmade delicacies made of cream milk, corn, corn syrup and sea salt in quarter, half and one-pound bags. Heavily salted caramels originated in Brittany, France and arrived in America in the early 1990s. Angelinos have had a longstanding taste for salty mixed with sweet. Chocolate turtles, pralines, Snicker’s bars and other salty nut/caramelized sugar combinations have been staples at confectionery shops for decades. Little Flower Candy Company’s bite-sized desserts are creamy, rich and perfectly accented by a few sprinkles of Fleur de Sel on top.
