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!!
