SweetSalt: The Red Velvet Cookie

In reading about SweetSalt and their Bacon Truffle Caramel Popcorn, I knew this was a must try, but I have to say, of everything we had, the Red Velvet Cookie was out of this world!

I had made it my mission to try their Lavender Duck Confit sandwich for my "list" as it absolutely contained both the savory & the sweet. Also, not one easily tempted by desserts, I figured I'd stick to my pursuit of the unusual, however these decadent cookies were just too good to pass up. And boy was I right. Two fluffy "cookies" of red velvet, were sandwiched around a yummy cream filling & topped with a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar that just begged to be consumed while sipping a nice cup of espresso. (Which us cheap-o's did not purchase.)

That's why they made a "next time."

On to their Bacon Truffle Caramel Popcorn. Thinking it would be the sweet savory snack that would keep me coming back for more, I was severely disappointed by the results. Described as "Earthy" was the right fit. The truffle flavor threw me, and not in a good way.

Bacon. Good. Caramel. Good. Popcorn. Good. Truffles. Not so much. Sorry Mushroom, you're not welcome here.


  1. This is totally old, but stop by the Peninsula in Beverly Hotels for their complimentary Truffle Popcorn in the bar...its wicked good.
