You may have seen them in specialty shops or in fancy food magazines. Bacon-chocolate treats have been taking the specialty-food scene by storm. Granted, it’s a strange storm of meat candy and fine cacao, but that’s a tempest in which we’d be love to be stranded anytime.
Check out these Top 5 Bacon-Chocolate Delights for a sampling of the madness:
The dark-chocolate bacon bar from Vosges is a study in 62 percent cacao, rich Applewood-smoked bacon and smoked salt. This bar is a member of the Chicago-based Vosges family of chocolates, which has been wowing discriminating chocolate lovers for a few years.
The original Voges bacon bar is made of 41 percent cacao and lovely smoked Applewood bacon. The Mo’s Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar helped set the tone for crazy-sounding yet irresistible bacon-chocolate treats treasured by discerning lovers of bacon and chocolate.
Boss Hogg’s Bacon-Chocolate Sueyts are a great option for another chocolate-laced indulgence. These delicious little lumps mix salty, savory bacon with dark cacao in a single tempting treat. Crispy pieces of Boss Hog Bacon are chopped into chunks and blended with dark chocolate.
For another twist, check out the Sir Francis Bacon Brittle-Chocolate Peanut Brittle. It’s a surprising all-natural combination of smoked artisanal bacon and peanuts grown in the United States that’s likely different than any brittle you’ve had.
Pig Candy comes from Roni-Sue’s Chocolates, a small New York City producer in the Essex Street Market that makes this cool version of chocolatey meat candy. It’s essentially crispy bacon that’s been dunked into your choice of milk or dark chocolate. It’s salty, sweet and so delicious, plus it’s available by the pound. Need we say more?
There you have it, lovers of chocolate-bacon delights. Buy now and either get ready to stuff some stockings or hoard them for yourself. Or do the right thing and spread holiday cheer by doing both!
