Yes, it’s true. This doesn’t come as a surprise – chocolate covered bacon was the new “it” food of the Minnesota State Fair last year but I had NEVER seen it in stores. Until now.

Now I’m willing to try anything once. (almost anything) This chocolate bar really is a culinary experience and the salty and sweet combo is a great one! I was not expecting to like this because bacon and chocolate?!?!? I mean really? But Vosge’s Haut Chocolat got it right.
Next flavor to try? There really are too many to choose  - I would have to say that the Organic Habana Candy Bar (organic deep milk chocolate + crunchy plantains) or the Barcelona Exotic Candy Bar (hickory smoked almonds + Fleur de Sel grey sea salt + deep milk chocolate). I’m not sure how I feel about the Enchanted Mushroom Candy Bar (organic dark chocolate + mushrooms) though…
Check out their beautiful website here. It really is Haut Chocolat and would be the perfect gift for the adventurous eater.

    No way…I mean I guess I believe it with all the bacon hysteria going on right now. I can't believe it was actually good!

    So I'm a bad blogger and forgot to mention what it tasted like…?!?!? It isn't THAT bacon-y, it just has that slightly salt taste…

    I love Vosges products (and their company). We order from them a couple times each year and it's fun to get the dry ice packages (if sent in the summer). We did a caramel tasting with our families over Christmas and it was a blast!

    I haven't been let down by any of their products. Although I'm not a total chocolate lover, I still drool over their catalog and enjoy the treats.
