Melbo on Bacon Chocolate

I am ecstatic to feature my second guest blogger. Wahoo! Melbo is uber talented in SO many departments, language and writing being two of them. If I could say more in German for her I would, but I know about five other words aside from “uber.” Here’s Melbo’s fresh take on Mo’s Bacon Bar of Vosges Haut Chocolat!

I love mixing sweet with salty (french fries dipped in Frostys, anyone?) and I LOVE bacon, so I had no reservations about this one. For my first nibble, I let the chocolate melt on my tongue (not an easy feat-I regularly inhale the stuff!) and I actually ended up with a piece of crispy bacon! Amazing! The flavor and texture of the chocolate itself was divine – so smooth and creamy with a subtle dark flavor. The fine granules of bacon were evenly distributed throughout the chocolate, and I compare the taste overall to a chocolate covered pretzel (minus the pretzel, which I suppose would leave us with chocolate covered salt). I really enjoyed the “bursts” of salt every time I chomped down on a little crunchy speck. And even now, 5 minutes later, I’m still picking bacon pieces out of my teeth with my tongue. Mmmmm…
I enjoyed my little square, but I could never imagine myself eating an entire bar on my own. I’m also not sure I’ll ever get a craving for it.. at least until I’m pregnant again. But when that day comes, I’ll be stocking up!!

My rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

    Marc, you’re right! “Comment moderation is for sucks.” I’m actually awesome and don’t know how to switch off that fancy function. However, it’s only activated on your first go. Once you’ve been approved, you’re approved ever after. So comment moderation-free from now on. 🙂

    I would give it 3 out of 5 stars. It’s nice for the novelty, but not an everyday favorite.

  4. I would wholeheartedly concur… Nancy is tops on the awesomeness scale. That’s just the standard line I always add if I ever encounter comment moderation. As for turning comment moderation off, see here, here and here.

  5. Ahhhhh…. still being moderated.

  6. i’ve been meaning to comment since your initial review of the bacon bar. in short, i agree with melbo. i love that silky chocolate melting away to salted pork…even if that does sound crazy
