And now, again, reinterpret with Eclat Chocolate, based in Pennsylvania, for a new bar called "Salt & Sin".

However, it is flavored with "complex notes" of Himalayan sea salt, orange, fennel and spices, which can be a bit more tortuous.
The chocolate collaboration between Bourdain, Ripert and master chocolate maker Éclat Christopher Curtin extends well beyond last year. The "Good & Evil" bar was relaunched in 2016, but debuted in a more expensive format, $ 18 in 2013.

In 2016, the bar restarted with an updated recipe and a lower price of $ 12.95, the same as the cost of the new Salt & Sin bar. The combination of flavors is part of the Éclat course, which is known for its parallel bars: chocolates with pairs of contrasting flavors like "Porcini and thyme", "Zuta and orange", "Porcini and thyme", "Green tea and the roasted rice "and" Allpsice & Sesame Seed ".
