Bacon Week: Mo’s Bacon Bar

Bacon Week Logo

What’s the perfect afternoon snack for Bacon Week? Why, Mo’s Bacon Bar from Vosges Haut-Chocolate, of course. It’s delicious milk chocolate, with teensy weensy bits of applewood smoked bacon and alder wood smoked salt inside. It’s maybe the most delicious chocolate bar I’ve ever had, and I’m not sure that’s a good thing.

Mo’s Bacon Bar from Vosges Haut-Chocolate

Here’s what my co-workers had to say:

  • Mark: Salty, crunchy, and a bit repulsive. should I have more?
  • Anton: I think I want more – but it could be the bacon chocolate talking.
  • Kevin: Sweet front, but with a lingering hint of bacon on the end. A delicate balance of sweet milk chocolate and salty pork belly.
  • Thom: I can feel my arteries hardening with delight.

Dennis Leary had this routine about crack cocaine. I’m probably butchering it, but it went something like, “Only in America would a guy invent crack. Only in America would there be a guy that cocaine wasn’t good enough for…”

Mo’s Bacon Bar is kind of like that. It’s really, really good. Frankly, it’s probably too good. Like crack cocaine. Like Penelope Cruz and Selma Hayek in bed together. It can only lead to … more bacon-covered chocolate.

  1. I must disagree on the Vosges Bacon Bar. It’s interesting. I like the slight smoke and the saltiness of the bar but I didn’t like the texture of the bacon. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the mythical bacon-chocolate bar of my mind and 1 being, like, a stale Twix. I give it a 6.

  2. But it’s EXPENSIVE! Try making your own with BaconSalt. There’s a recipe on my blog at http://crazy4flavour.blogspot.com/ using BaconSalt and regular chocolate – it takes 5minutes to make a bar as good as Mo’s Bacon Bar for about 60 cents for 4 ounces!

    BaconSalt is a spice blend that “makes everything taste like bacon” and really works well with the chocolate. You can get it from baconsalt.com in N. America, and from crazy4flavour.co.uk in UK and Europe.

    EVERYTHING should taste like BACON!!
