Chocolate and Bacon........heavenly

Mo's Bacon Bar - wow, what a combination. It's bacon AND chocolate! Brilliant.....




Large squares of delicious milk chocolate with bits of applewood smoked bacon and sprinkling of alder salt.





From the package -

"Breathe...engage your 5 senses, close your eyes and inhale deeply. Be in the present moment, notice the color of the chocolate, the glossy shine. Rub your thumb over the chocolate bar to release the aroma of of smoked applewood bacon flirting with deep milk chocolate. Snap off a tiny piece and place it in your mouth, let the lust of salt and sweet coat your tongue."

Wow. What a sensual description; Wish I'd written it. I feel like I need a cigarette.

This lovely chocolate combination is a product of Vosges Haut Chocolate and is sold, among other places, World Market. The creative force behind this line is Katrina...just Katrina, no last name. She graduated from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris then furthered her food studies through extensive world travel.

Katrina founded Vosges Haut Chocolate with the concept of travel the world through chocolate in a mission to create a sustainable luxury chocolate experience.

My favorite chocolate is dark, but this combo with milk chocolate was supreme.

This is definitely going to be a birthday present for my boss this year. His b-day is in October so I have plenty of time to sample some of the other varieties before deciding which chocolate bar he gets.

I've tried several other flavors from Vosges, but haven't had the guts to try the bacon. So it's actually good, huh?

I know, I know...heavenly...But a little strange. When I first saw this combo a while back I really wondered about it...

Oh my - bacon and chocolate - that's two of the major food groups covered in one bar. Lindt do a chilli chocolate that is divine!

Oh, it's great, I promise. But, only if you like bacon. It's not a heavy taste of it, nor is it fatty...it's just a good combo.

I have to try some of the others now, particularly the one with chili pepper. I'll let you know.....
