This post was thiiiiis close to being another edition of “let me tell you all the crazy things that can happen to the brain.”

I have decided not to subject you to this, and for that, you’re welcome.

Sweet and salty is totes all the rage for good reason.  It’s a delicious combination.  And there are so many different variations and ways to achieve that perfect sweet-salty balance.  Fleur de sel caramels…salted chocolate shortbread cookies…honey cayenne roasted pecans.  And these:
