Bacon + Chocolate = Win!

At Ted's Butcherblock today, I spotted this bacon chocolate bar (by Vosges Chocolate) at the counter. It was the last one, so I had to buy it to check it out.

It's milk chocolate bar with little bits of bacon in it!

As a chocolate bar it was actually pretty good, despite the milk chocolate. It's a little bit salty, a little bit smoky from the bacon and sweet from the chocolate. Maybe a little bit strange at first look, and I'm sure it's not going to suit everybody's tastes who expect chocolate to be a sweet treat, but this one works pretty well. It's pretty expensive for a chocolate bar, but makes for an interesting and different treat. Looks like there's a dark chocolate version of the bar out now, which I think might be even better. I'll have to keep an eye out for it now.
