Project 365 : You Got Your Pig in My Chocolate

I’m a bacon junkie. If bacon’s in it, or on it, or near it, I’m likely to be not far away. Casey told me about a little treat he received, and I was fortunate enough for him to pass it on.

Bacon. And Chocolate. No joking.

Vosges Haut-Chocolat has a great many unusual chocolate treats. One of them is this bar, comprised of 45% cacao, applewood smoked bacon and alderwood smoked salt. You’d think I’d love this — I’ve been dunking my bacon in pancake syrup for years and years. And I want to like it, I really do.

But I don’t.

I don’t know if it’s the unusual combination, or if I’m just too closed-minded for something like this. But I just didn’t enjoy it. Before today, I would’ve told you that there’s nothing bacon can’t do. Now, I realize bacon can’t do chocolate.
