I’m not usually the biggest fan of salty and sweet combinations.

I’ll eat them, but I don’t crave them.
Until now.  
I was going to make caramel corn, only to find out that we were out of popcorn, but we did have a bag of pretzels, so I swapped the popcorn for the pretzels.  
This is the best combination of salty and sweet I’ve ever had.  There isn’t much caramel to cover the entire 1 pound bag of pretzels, so it’s just a light and crunchy glaze that isn’t too sweet, but then you add the white chocolate and it makes it just sweet enough.  Trust me.  When can you ever go wrong with white chocolate pretzels, anyway?  You can’t, but add caramel and you definitely can’t.
What’s your favorite salty sweet combination?

P.s. I have a pair of Nike’s selling on ebay if anyone’s interested: Women’s Nike 6.0.
