I found this scrumptious dark thing at Raley's/Nob Hill Foods. It cost $5 - about the same price as a cup of coffee at Starbuck's. It's worth it (the chocolate, not the coffee).
Katrina, creator of this delicacy, states, "Breathe...Engage your 5 senses, close your eyes and inhale deeply...Rub your thumb over the chocolate bar the release the aromas...flirting with deep milk chocolate...let the lust of salt and sweet coat your tongue." Who needs soft porn, when you can read the backs of chocolate bacon bars?!
The flavors blend nicely in this mixture of sweet cocoa and smokey salty bacon. I was a tad disappointed, though, that it was skinny. Something so caloric should not be slender, but I guess it wouldn't have fit into the box if it were fatter. And I guess I just want more!
Next time, though, I'll get the dark chocolate version. That one's more intense and even yummier - though I generally prefer milk chocolate. [I'm pretty sure Byron of ABFtS agrees that the dark chocolate one's amazing. He won it in a contest I hosted months ago.]
All in all, I'm happily sated. I give this special treat an 8.
Ever tried the bacon chocolate combo?
What do you think?
