Vosges Haut Chocolate – Mo’s Bacon Bar (Selfridges)

As strange combinations go, I have covered some curiosities, but this has to take the biscuit. My first thought was:

Bacon + Chocolate = Madness

Oh yes folks, its a chocolate bar with pieces of bacon inside. I saw it mentioned in the press though, and obviously had to hunt some down.

During the first first bite I spent the entire time trying to get over the concept, it turns out that the bacon is a little chewy too which doesn’t help.

Tucking in a little more I let my senses digest the flavours and found the bar to be smokey and rather salty. It is not bad, it’s just very different, it reminds me of the salt chocolate I have previously talked about. It did grow on me the more I ate, but I won’t be rushing out for another bar! Strange, but worth a try!
