Bleck. I love chocolate and I love bacon, so I thought that these sinfully delicious ingredients together, in Vosges Haute Chocolat’s “Mo’s Dark Bacon Bar,” would yield a hot love fest. Oy, more like hot mess! Truly, I’m grimacing as I write, trying to disintegrate the aftertaste of bad bacon with sweet cocoa.
While the ingredients look fine enough with uncured pork seasoned with sea salt, white pepper, and celery juice (eh?), I almost think they should have just fried up some crispy strips of Oscar Mayer for a familiar and pleasing result. Ironically, the bacon in this bar tastes artificial or bad, like the shredded, unwanted bits that you find waiting around at a salad bar.
This bar’s only saving grace is the 62% cacao, high quality chocolate. But at $7.50 a pop, the Dark Bacon Bar is a complete Pass!
