Have you tried chocolate covered bacon, either in a commercial artisan chocolate bar or made by an independent chocolate shop?
I think it's surprisingly delicious. I'd love to hear comments from others.
[font:Microsoft Sans Serif][/font]I absolutely love chocolate (I eat 2 squares of extra dark chocolate every night), but I can say that I have never been tempted to cover my bacon with chocolate. That does not sound like it would be good at all. What caused you to try this strange combination in the first place?

I first saw the combination as a candy bar by Vosges. It's called Mo's Bacon Bar. I couldn't resist trying it because it sounded so weird! It was actually pretty good. The saltiness of the bacon enhanced the sweetness of the chocolate.
Then I found a local chocolate shop that made its own, getting the bacon really crispy and coating in a rich dark chocolate. Wow, that was good!
And then there were vendors at the Wisconsin State Fair selling it this summer. It made a lot of news reports locally. I didn't make it to the fair, so I'm not sure about the taste or quality there.
Chocolate covered bacon. Now I can die a happy man.

Vance I am sure most guys must feel that way too!
I get the salty/sweet thing! And I think chocolate on most things would taste good, but on meat ewwwewww I would have to try first...
Eeeeeew that sounds like a heart attack just waiting to happen.
Actually- I love chocolate covered potato chips. There's a place in Florida that makes them and they are divine!! Just the right combo of sweet and salt!

Love the two separately, and have to admit. I love it together too! My first thought was ... what crazy person drummed up the idea of covering something like bacon with chocolate? But, it really works well together. Of course, the quality of the ingredients and how the bacon is cooked really matters.

Ha! Chocolate covered bacon? Love it! Vosges has [url=http://bit.ly/9vxV8c] chocolate bacon bars[/url]. I absolutely LOVE their truffles too. They're kinda pricy, so I entered to get a free box of Vosges [url=http://bit.ly/cA3cQ0]here[/url].
