I’ll also note that this is still the ultimate in chocolate-covered pork products. Share: By John Scalzi I enjoy pie.

I think I actually vomited a little…in my mouth. Damn. Forgot the ‘t’ on the snail. Holy crap. I love chocolate, and I love pork, but sheesh, there’s some things that you just don’t do… Proof that just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I learned that lesson with my bacon pie. Oh, but bacon pie sounds like it could be good. Oops – I’m not anonymous, I’m just me. Sorry. The bacon chocolate bar is delicious, by the way – and I’m not just saying that because I’m pregnant. The bacon pie could have been good — nay ought to have been good. But it wasn’t. I blame myself. 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. 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. The one with wasabi looks interesting — have you tried it? 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. 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…) 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. My fave is the white chocolate and olive one. Yum! Huh. I just bought Vosges Curry ice cream today. And I even saw the bacon bar when I was in line at the checkout. I was eating and almost puked while reading that article 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. # Pablo Defendini Says: October 19th, 2007 at 9:28 am Holy crap. I love chocolate, and I love pork, but sheesh, there’s some things that you just don’t do… Like put cream gravy on that bacon chocolate bar? Where can I find this bacon chocolate bar? This sounds like something I might want to review. 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). You pussies. Real men like their bacon dipped in batter and deep fried! I really liked your blog! Praise Bacon and Hallelujah :) Comments are closed.
