The idea of a salted sugar (or a sugared salt?) seemed seriously weird to us, although I then had to admit to finding that salted caramel is pretty good, so maybe it was not so weird after all. So we opened the packet in anticipation of finding a new taste we would all enjoy. Only one way to find out! I started by using a teaspoon to remove a small quantity and then tipping some on to each person's palm. One by one, we gave it the taste test. Then - thumbs up all round. Finally, I tried it myself. At first, I tasted only salt and wondered why they were all so enthusiastic. Then the espresso flavour kicked in and almost completely took over. Delicious!

I remember encountering a similar combination when I tasted dried salted plums - on two occasions, once in Mexico and once in Hong Kong - and was floored by the double-whammy of salt followed by sweet. So I guess this is the New Zealand equivalent of a unique taste sensation and one I think I could fast become addicted to. My companions were equally impressed and since they all have very different food preferences, we could be on a winner here.

For the first session, I used the salt sprinkled on top of an otherwise very plain commercially produced pavlova which I had topped with cream and mandarin segments. This was a quickly assembled dessert which was almost completely demolished as six of us helped ourselves to generous portions and then came back for seconds (or, as in Mr Six' case, thirds)! Everyone loved the effect; two of us even added an extra sprinkle to our own servings as we like a fuller-bodied coffee flavour. The soft texture of the pavlova contrasted nicely with the crunch of the salt; this was particularly marked when the mix was sprinkled on at the end rather than being stirred through the cream as it retained its crispness better.

We tried it with other desserts on two subsequent nights, once with banana custard (which the children especially enjoyed), and once with a golden steamed pudding, again with custard. It seemed to be tailor-made for pairing with custard, melting into it and making it slightly darker but with the odd crystal still apparent. We tried it with cocoa too, thinking we would end up with a mocha drink, but this was one use which did not appeal: the coffee and salt were completely overwhelmed by the cocoa so we could not taste them at all.

The product has a long shelf life although I can't really see there being too much left over in our house anyway. The pack is quite small but after using it in three different desserts and as an additive in two cups of cocoa, I still have nearly half a packet left. I am not sure how much a packet holds as it is not noted anywhere - I checked on the website too but the size is not recorded there either. This would be my one reservation given that some people on restricted diets need the nutritional contents identified by weight as well as name. But apart from that, I am most impressed with this product and plan to buy it again - and possibly, try some of the other varieties in the range if I get the opportunity.
