KD Finds: Favorite Smoky Food Finds

Inspired by the growing popularity of smoking foods, we've rounded up our favorite finds with smoky flavors. Read on to discover our five picks!

1. Laphroaig 10 Year Old Single Malt Whiskey

Not for the faint of heart, this whiskey's full-bodied flavor comes from the malted barley being dried over a peat fire, developing a smoky flavor that's unique to the island of Islay in the Western Isles of Scotland.


2. Mast Brothers Chocolate Bars

For high-quality, bean-to-bar chocolate, we trust Mast Brothers to deliver. Their Papau New Guinea bar, made with smoked cacao, delivers hints of smoked bacon and aged scotch, while the Vanilla and Smoke bar includes bourbon vanilla beans from Madagascar.


3. Kusmi Lapsang Souchong Tea

This Chinese black tea is smoked over pinewood fires to develop energizing flavor and aroma that's perfect to wake up to. We also think it'd be great for tea brines to infuse smoky flavors in food!

$16; kusmitea.com

4. Falksalt Smoke

These pyramid-shaped sea salt flakes add crunchy texture and wonderful smoke-infused flavor to your dishes. We'll be sprinkling plenty of this over our cookout dishes this summer!

$7 for 4.4 oz; falksalt.com

5. Chiquilin Smoked Paprika

A must-have ingredient for Spanish cooking, pimentón, or smoked paprika, is the secret kick in chorizo sausages and paellas. It's the perfect spice to amp up the flavors of your barbecue pork and grilled kebabs!

$6 - $7 per 2.64 oz tin; amazon.com
