You Got Bacon In My Chocolate!

Bacon and chocolate are two pretty wonderful things on their own, so it isn't too surprising that someone decided to put them together in one orgy of decadence. Actually,  Homer Simpson thought this one up a while ago.....but only now has his dream come to fruition.
Vosges Chocolates has introduced a product called "Mo's Bacon Bar". I picked one up a while back and brought it with me to Milwaukee for a little taste test.

The results:
Dad: "Why mess up good chocolate?"
Bob (BIL): "Tasted more like peanuts."
David (nephew-in-law): Eh, OK."
Allyson (niece): "Pretty light on the bacon."
Andrea (sister): "I'm not a fan."
Me: "Pretty good, thought it would be bacony-er."

Well, there you have it......probably not worth the money (I think it was something like 4 bucks for maybe an ounce?)--but still worth investigating the concept. Right now I am researching dipping actual bacon strips in chocolate. I'll keep you all posted.

Bacon and chocolate together--I don't know, doesn't sound too good to me. :)

I've seen another brand of candy bar that did that combo. Being a vegetarian (and cheap) I didn't try it. I did, however, love the black olives in white chocolate.

MHP--it has potential, trust me =)

GR--I'm not a huge fan of white chocolate, but this sounds really intriguing.
