Dear Mystery Vosges Benefactor,

I have never before had a package arrive with dry ice warnings. Awesome!

Thank you very much! I love Vosges, can't wait to try the hot chocolate and the bars I've never had before, and look forward with anticipatory glee to re-acquainting myself with the ones I've already tried. This couldn't have come at a better time.

PS to non-mystery chocolate benefactors, because I know LJ/DW: No, the bacon bar was not included - I think it doesn't come in a mini size - so I still haven't tried that one. Has anyone?

I currently have half a dark bacon bar in my backpack that I've been occasionally noshing on for the past few weeks since I was in Chicago. It's quite yummy, though I do wonder if the milk one would've been even better (I usually prefer dark chocolate, but in this case think the creamy sweetness of milk chocolate might've been a better complement to the bacon)

I thought I gave you some of the bacon bar when I visited once?

I've tried it! Pretty good, but for tasting, rather than eating. Pork products work well with sweet flavors, so it melds nicely but I wouldn't want to eat a lot at once.

I have, and I could have sworn I've seen it in mini size at Whole Foods, but I found it disappointing. I didn't feel that the bacon flavor came through in any sort of nuanced way, and it didn't seem to contrast enough with the milk chocolate.

Now, the maple bacon cupcakes I made with [ profile] cluegirl, those were awesome.

Yes, I've both given and received the bacon bar. I quite enjoyed it.

I took a free taste of the bacon-chocolate bar at the Vosges in Chicago. Not a good combination. Other things are great with chocolate (chilies of course, lavender, green tea, etc.) but not bacon. Maybe hot crisp bacon dipped in dark hot chocolate, but cold--no thanks.

I've tried a couple of different bacon-chocolate bars, and I'm not thrilled with them. The flavors just don't seem to be good complements. The result isn't *worse* than bacon or chocolate, but it's not better, either.

Bacon and caramel, on the other hand, are fantastic. I have made bacon brittle. I will make it again.

I've tried it and enjoyed it a great deal -- I was a little dubious at first on seeing that it was milk chocolate rather than dark, but it's a good complex dark milk choc, not the super-sweet-and-cloying unsubtle sort. It's not intensely bacony, but there is enough to give it a very nice aroma and distinct smoky-salt savory edge to the flavor. Expect something with a salt-to-sweet flavor balance that's closer to salted caramel rather than candied bacon, basically.

I was given one and I thought it was super gross. I brought it to a party and everyone tried little bits and most of them liked it, but it's not something you would eat a lot of.

At least it isn't as bad as their DISGUSTING white chocolate and olive bar.

Yes, I've had the bacon/chocolate bar. Very yummy.
