May you Smagee be forever known as the party pooper who burst my chocolate heart. I shall retreat once again into the background, so that you may carry on your 'feedback.' (?) (At least I know what site I'm on.) Hope you're happy, because I sure am. I have chocolates on the way! WootyParty for me!

Just try them with some port/starboard, you'll be back.

speaking of sweet stuff, can we have some liquid love here to go with these?

You carry on with your "beeo, beep" self! It was you that made me want to join the "beep, beep" party revolution with 3 boxes.
This is how we bond and realize we are not alone in our Woot addiction.

Funny; I was just eating these this very moment when here it appeared again. They're marvelous. I got them at the previous Woot offering.

Only problem is they're too easy to eat too many too quickly as they are lighter than the same company's non-pecan chocolate-covered sea salt caramels, which I'm totally ga-ga over.

You can't go wrong.

I tried the caramels. The chocolate is absolutely first rate; likewise, the caramel. Where I have a bit of a problem is the salt. I like a bit of salt but found them too salty. I'm guessing the turtles are pretty much the same. On the other hand, it's not that big of a deal to brush a lot of the salt off, leaving just a bit...On another hand, I really love turtles....and what's brushing off a bit of salt, really?

In for 3. Both the these and the caramels are great. All the adults in my family (except me) prefer these over the caramels. My 5yr old daughter and I both prefer the caramels.

The solution is clear. Start eating.

Is it just a coincidence these are being offered right around lunch time? I managed to resist these last time they were offered. Not today! In for one.

Interesting. There were similar comments when the caramels were up yesterday (about them being too salty) but I find the salt to be exactly right (and I don't usually care for salty things). But hey, each to his/her own.

Fleur de sel is really expensive and it is delicious, so maybe you could brush those precious granules into a bowl, for use on other foods!

Really, I'm not blue, I don't have a ratty beard, and I NEVER wear pink.

Okay experienced folks, how well do these freeze? I love chocolate but let's be clear, I'm not in the mood to share, but I wouldn't mind spacing out the joy of chocolate.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Good question... I'm wondering the same thing. Although to make room for these goodies, I'll have to break down and take out the box of Brandini toffee currently residing in the freezer. Darn. I guess a sacrifice I'm willing to make! Three coming my way... beep, beep, beep!

Oh fine. Beep-ity beep beep. I'm in for one. Sent to my office so husband doesn't find out... I'm sure this doesn't count as lying to him, does it? I mean, the gods pronounce forgiveness on all salted chocolate / caramel goodness induced omissions... right?

The caramels (from previous woot) are OK, but here's an enthusiastic vote for another Candy Basket fudge sampler offering!

Description on these state Best by 8/1/2012.
Packages should be kept in a cool dry place for proper storage until consumed.

Ideally, store in your wine cooler if you have one, and have the room.
