Chocolate-Covered Bacon Review...

So I discovered this weekend that a store in my town carries Vosge's "Mo's Bacon Bar", a combination of two of the greatest things on the planet: pork fat and chocolate.

I'm sad to say that it did not live up to my high expectations. It didn't taste bad, but if I hadn't already known it had bacon in it, I never would've been able to tell. It just tasted kinda salty with a slight crunchiness. I think the bacon was ground up too fine.

I think we need bacon covered chocolate instead.

¿Maybe the best way to go about this is to make a mole?

That way it would be more savory than sweet.

If they would mold it into the shape of boobs I'd say they'd have a winner.

Plus it was $3 for a 1/2 ounce piece of chocolate!

Now, I really like these. My friend bought me a couple of the big bars when I moved to Dhaka last year, and I have turned a lot of people on to them.

I think the slightly meaty, salty taste of the bacon is a perfect contrast to to the chocolate.

You're a guy who lives on frozen pizzas, I'm not sure you're a qualified judge of fine chocolates. ;-)

Thanks for trying it.

I liked the thorough, comprehensive review. Took me a good while to read the whole thing, but I managed.

WHile I think it genious of Vosage to create it, I tend to agree with you on this one. If some low-class chocolate company would just make one, it would probably taste better.

Like Snickers or Hershey - they should make one and I bet it would be awesome.

This product is why "they" hate Americans.

The bacon was ground up? Where's the fun in that? If you're going to eat something like that, it might as well be a whole piece of bacon dipped in chocolate. And a stick. It should be on a stick.

They are on the right track, but bacon is more of a beef garnish. Mini-sausage chunks in bourbon inside a chocolate bon-bon.

There's your snack my man.

To build on a previous comment, if they molded it into the shape of boobs, Dr. Zibbs would have a weiner.

Ahh sweet and salty - my favorite combo. Next time make pig candy - just roll 1/2 slices of bacon in brown sugar and broil. HMMMMMMM. Tasty Sooo - Whee!
