Romance Of Salt And Sugar Is No Longer A Secret Affair

December 3, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The food industry’s love affair with salty-sweet snacks and treats continues unabated. There’s pecan pie potato chips from Pringles, salted caramel truffle ice cream from Häagen-Dazs, and Milano cookie slices topped with salted pretzel bits from Pepperidge Farms. On the local level, too, chefs, bakers, toffee makers and bartenders appreciate the extra special something that results from the marriage of salt and sugar. In Chicago, for example, one bakery serves a potato chip chocolate chip cookie. A restaurant offers fried Manchego cheese with red pepper sauce and wildflower honey as an appetizer. And another restaurant serves a cocktail made with tequila, cucumber, lemon and a Mexican herb syrup garnished with cumin salt.
