Desserts category pick for the week of 8/11/08
Here's what I said then:
I've had my share of samples of expensive chocolate bars, the luxury item no economic downturn can seem to halt the production of, but rarely (with my less that discerning taste buds) can I say that they are worth the price?until now. Vosges has many unusual flavors, but the Mo's Bacon Bar was the most tempting for me, and finally, I broke down and bought one at Whole Foods.
A square each in hand, Jim and I took our first bite and were almost left speechless. Before you shun the odd pairing, as Katrina Markoff points out on the back of the bar,”I began experimenting with bacon and chocolate at the tender age of 6, while eating chocolate chip pancakes drenched in Aunt Jemima syrup… beside lay 3 strips of sizzlin' bacon.. I combined the two”
It's one of those ingenious sweet and salty mixes make eating even more exciting. It's also not one of those chocolates that claim to have a flavor, but barely register as that actual taste. You can definitely taste the bacon, and it is real, smoky, apple wood bacon.
Available at Whole Foods and the Vosges boutiques, this bar of greatness will cost you eight dollars, but you can make it last for days. It's just too sensational and rich to eat more than a square at a time.
One of the very best treats I have tasted all year.
