On Tuesday Slog pointed us to cool news: local company Fran’s Chocolates is garnering headlines abroad.

Earlier this week the U.K. Guardian ran a story about how Obama is a sucker for Fran’s unbelievably delicious salted caramels. As such the author predicts an “inevitable invasion” of the salty sweet.

Apparently those across-the-ponders are slow on the uptake—not only is Obama’s infatuation old news, salted caramel has been ballyhooed here in Seattle for the past year, practically to the point of oversaturation.

I for one would be perfectly content if I never again saw a salted caramel cupcake. Anyone in agreement with me?

P.S. Way to do us proud, Fran’s!
