Trends in Chocolate Candy: Blending Savory with Sweet


These treats from Wockenfuss straddle the line between sweet and savory, combining the rich taste of chocolate candy with salty goodness!

Exploring new flavor combinations is an exciting way to enjoy candy, but blends of sweet and savory flavors have been around for a long time. Salted black licorice has been a staple in Scandinavian countries for ages, and chocolate-covered nuts and pretzels are classic vehicles for salty-sweet flavor. These treats from Wockenfuss straddle the line between sweet and savory, combining the rich taste of chocolate candy with salty goodness!

Sea Salt and Caramel are Taking the Chocolate Candy World by Storm

If you’ve explored sweet and savory candy before, you’ve likely encountered the combination of sea salt and caramel. Salt brings out the creamy richness of caramel, and the backdrop of sugar and cream makes the mouthwatering taste of salt stand out even more. Sea salt caramels are a classic treat, and Wockenfuss offers these delicious chocolates in both milk and dark chocolate versions. If you’re looking for a salty treat without the caramel, try some of our sea salt vanilla butter creams!

Nuts, Pretzels, and Chocolate Candy Bring Together Salty and Sweet

Salt isn’t the only savory ingredient used in chocolate candy today. Nuts and pretzels bring their own tasty flavors to the game, adding body, texture, and (of course) a hit of savory flavor. Try our white, dark, or milk chocolate covered pretzels for a crunchy, chocolatey snack, or explore the wide world of chocolate covered nuts. We offer almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, and peanuts, each enrobed in rich layers of chocolate. Almond bark, cashew bark, and almond butter crunch each embody a harmonious blend of savory and sweet.

Try These Off-Beat Treats

Savory sweets aren’t limited to chocolate candy with nuts or a sprinkling of salt. The creative confectioners at Wockenfuss offer a wide range of unusual and uncommon sweets with a bit of savory kick. Our milk chocolate crab potato chip clusters combine rich chocolate with a flavor profile that screams “Maryland!” This same savory flavor can be found in our crab seasoned caramel popcorn. Of course, if you’re partial to classic caramel popcorn, we’ve got that too. Whether you’re a fan of the sweet/savory combination or you prefer your sweets salt-free, Wockenfuss has a wide range of candy for you to explore!
