Favorite (newish) sweet-savory combinations?

Salted caramel or chocolate.

Chocolate bacon.

Peanut brittle (with or without bacon).

Yogurt (or chocolate) covered pretzels.

Those are pretty much tried and true sweet-savory combos. Maybe throw in a few others like honey-balsamic vinegar or chocolate potato chip cookies, etc.

But have you discovered or "invented" anything new recently?

Recently, I found that a Chocolate-Hoisin Sauce was a superb accompaniment for banana fritters as well as for crepes.

It's got that tangy, sweet, bitter taste sensation that I have yet find in anything except for maybe in really really ripe Durian -- except this sauce doesn't reek of week-old soiled diapers.

Just take equal parts Hoisin sauce and melted dark chocolate, and mix. Voila!

What about you? Any new sweet-savory combos you've discovered that you'd like to share?
