I can't speak for that particular product, but Vosges here in Chicago produces some exceptional Bacon-Chocolate bars: http://www.vosgeschocolate.com/category/bacon_and_chocolate Also, I went to Chicago's Baconfest and they had Bakon vodka that they were mixing into a chocolate martini - exceptional. Same thing with Bloody Marys. YUM!
Endorsed by Paula Deen's sons, so it must be Smithfield bacon. What a waste of good chocolate, not to mention the poor sardine-squashed pig.
Bob, Please don't lighten up, even a bit.That stuff does look like pure junk.
Ah but when you make it yourself! We just made a big quantity for an event coming up - it is really good.
If you want to see bacon junk, I stumbled across this last week.http://www.random-good-stuff.com/2009/04/01/squeez-bacon/
It looks awful - but it doesn't have to be.Just like lager doesn't have to suck, just because so many do.If you look here, they are using greaves (cracklings) - and sometimes even Mangalitsa greaves. The Mangalitsa version can be very good. I tried some, from a guy who works at the Zotter factory, and who raises pigs.
Proves the point that even when bacon and chocolate are delicious on their own. A combo of the two in one dish isn't necessarily double goodness.
No, this goes to prove that everything is better with bacon.The only way to improve on that would be with a nacho-cheese/salsa dipping sauce, covering them in panko or tempura and deep frying. :P
It's like the "best thing" Duff Goldman ever ate was a deep fried bacon covered chocolate bar....yes, I had the very unfortunate moment on a change of channels to catch this momentous occasion. I am actually embarrassed for these people....but there are bigger that have fallen lower I guess.
Have any of you folks knocking the bacon and chocolate combo actually TRIED it?Sweet and salty. Yum!
Thank you, Brad! We do have knee-jerk reactions to things that just sound unnatural, like women voting.
