Seattle is one of my favorite layovers, and I always hit the ground running. There are so many culinary treats to be had, you may think it’s hard to decide where to begin. Not for me, Fran’s Chocolates is always one of my first stops. The biggest draw for me is their salted caramels. They are, by far, the absolute best I’ve ever had. There are two flavors – milk chocolate topped with smoked salt and dark chocolate topped with gray salt and they are both equally good. You can buy them singly or boxed.
If you’re a salted caramel fan, go to Fran’s in Seattle. They have a lot of other amazing chocolate, too, my favorites being the orange confit and double chocolate figs. There are numerous locations throughout the Seattle area, I frequent the downtown store at the Four Seasons Hotel, 1325 1st Avenue.
