One Great Bite
by Ann Thurlow
Say these words after me: salted, licorice, caramel. Say them long and slow, as if you were using them to seduce a lover. And that’s exactly what it’s like to eat a candy of the same name. The devilish chef at the Maroon Pig in Georgetown makes them. Devilish? You want to say no—you must! But a silky voice whispers in your ear. Just one! Close your eyes and take small, sweet bites. For a minute, all the bad stuff will go away. The candy will soothe you like a sweetheart’s tender kiss.
