    Oh…
    My…
    God…

    That looks like escargo that crawled out of a dogs ass. I think I actually vomited a little…in my mouth.

  2. Holy crap. I love chocolate, and I love pork, but sheesh, there’s some things that you just don’t do…

  3. The bacon chocolate bar is delicious, by the way – and I’m not just saying that because I’m pregnant.

  4. Respectfully, while the bacon chocolate bar is (in my opinion) the least tasty of Vosges chocolate bars, they DO have a number of other quite good options.

    (I’m not involved in any way with Vosges, except that I give their chocolate bars as gifts to clients quite often. And I enjoy them quite a bit myself, too. This is not a plug for their product to benefit myself, though it just might benefit other chocolate lovers.)

    The complete list of options can be found here.

  5. I don’t recall the bacon pie episode, but yes, that should have been good. The choclolate covered pork fat, is one of the most horrible things I’ve ever seen.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Goatse, Felch, Chocolate covered pork fat. You’ve got all the best stuff here.

  6. I’ve had the wasabi one, and it is wonderful. So are the Red Fire and the Goji bar (in my mind, the best bar Vosges makes). I haven’t had the bacon bar, but last year, when they had a similar item available as a trufffle, a NYC-based friend was nice enough to send me one, and it remains one of the greatest chocolate items I’ve ever eaten.

  7. I’m not associated with Vosges either, but I love the Naga bar — the one with curry. And my husband loves the Red Fire and the one with wasabi. (He’s more into hot-spicy than I am.)

    If only it weren’t $7 for a chocolate bar. And available nearby. (I can get them from the nearest Whole Foods, but that’s an hour and a half away…)

  8. Oddly enough, even though I don’t eat bacon (vegetarian and all), I can see where a bacon chocolate bar might work. Dark chocolate would be the best option, I think, with a relatively high cacao percentage. But not too high – don’t want to lose the sweetness. And the bits o’ bacon should have the least amount of fat possible and not be too salty. A little salt is good, but you don’t want to overpower the chocolate.

    BTW, I’m salivating over the Creole Exotic Candy Bar and the Calindia Exotic Candy Bar.

  9. By next year, you will see a deep-fried version of this bar.

    I haven’t actually seen the bacon chocolate bar in person, but a local supermarket used to carry chocolate-covered grasshoppers. I don’t know why.

    Like put cream gravy on that bacon chocolate bar?

  11. Johnny, you can order them from Vosges directly (see #10 for a link), but they’re hella expensive on shipping. Your local Whole Foods or other specialty story might have them (or have the ability to order them).
