brics de sal


Bombons Blanxart is a master chocolatier based in Barcelona, Spain. The company was founded in 1954 and states on their website that they carry out their entire production process, from roasting cocoa beans (Ghana, Congo, Guayaquil and the Dominican Republic) to packaging and distribution.


Blanxart’s brics de sal are roasted and salted almonds covered in salted white chocolate – a salt party!


The first thing you taste is the white chocolate covered in salt. The brics de sal are not made to melt in your mouth but to eat, so I’m not going to talk about the chocolate. Basically you’ll taste salt – white chocolate – salt – almond with added salt flakes – a full blown salt explosion. They are somewhat addictive, as salted nuts sometimes are, but the sweetness of the chocolate keeps you from eating the whole box in one go. For someone looking for a truly salty experience, these are highly recommendable.


This is available at various online shops. I bought it from the Berliner Kaffeerösterei – a micro-coffee roaster, online store, coffee shop, patisserie – with a good selection of chocolates in Berlin. Price approx. € 3.
