Vosges Chocolate with Bacon . . . Tried it yet?

I got an email announcement the other day that Vosges now has their chocolate bars with bacon in them. So I'm dying to know if anyone has tried them yet! Do tell!

      Please read "Vosges bacon bar -- not ready for prime time" posted by Ruth Lafler at

      I was not impressed, and I wanted to be. I can see how bacon's salty smoky goodness might be wonderful with dark chocolate. But nope, didn't happen. I've very much enjoyed Katrina Markoff's (Vosges' chocolatier) Barcelona (smoked almonds and grey sea salt) and Gianduja bars though.

        I agree...I thought it would be really good, but it's really not that great at all. disappointed that I paid eight bucks for it!

        1. I love many of the Vosges combinations, but I haven't seen bacon. It's sounds obscene. Must look for it.

            Don't know if you've heard of this one, but...

            Dip this in chocolate and what was obscene before is now foreplay...

              My mom makes this, but I've never tried dipping it in chocolate. Mmmmmmmmmmmm! I think I might need to be alone for a while.

                I know this is an ancient reply, but Jill Conner-Browne mentions a recipe in at least 2 of her "Sweet Potato Queens" books...http://sweetpotatoqueens.com/, but I don't think the website posts the recipes.

            2. I am also a vosges fan - maybe it's bacon flavored - like the chile one - but, salty? UGH. I cannot imagin them putting something out that gross, so it is probably good.

              1. The key here is Vosges uses Applewood smoked bacon...not your Oscar M. variety!
