Sometimes inspiration is self propelled. The first SPC bark was the Seaside Bark, it just wasn’t always called that. The original name was PMS Pacifier. I’m sure you can guess what time of the month it was when I thought this one up.
I love the combination of sweet, salt and crunch. Pretzels & ice cream, potato chips & Diet Pepsi, that kind of thing. After finishing whatever chocolate I needed to make, I had some dark chocolate (my personal favorite) left in the tempering machine and started looking around for what I could add to satisfy my sweet, salt, crunch craving and voila!
As I started selling more and more of the “PMS Pacifier”, I realized that the men loved it just as much as the women! Not wanting to alienate half the population, I decided I should change the name. Since the “salt” in this combination is Hawaiian sea salt, the name Seaside Bark seemed fitting.
Seaside Bark is not only the first SPC bark, it is also our best selling! It is the only bark we offer year round and also do in holiday decors for Valentine’s Day and Christmas. Apparently I’m not the only one who craves that combination of sweet, salt and crunch!
