Just saw this...

Must try. I think that gourmet store a couple doors down from Osushi sells Vosges...does anyone else, Temper Chocolates or FK, maybe?

Thanks!

  1. I've seen Vosges at Whole Foods and Temper.

      Cool. Thanks, Limster!

        Woops, I was unclear, to clarify -- I know those places sell Vosges, but don't know if they sell the bacon one.

        Uh, AND BACON. I don't care if it's Nestle Quik chocolate.

        1. re: tatamagouche

          You really think bacon and chocolate sounds good?

            I'm gung-ho to give it a try, let's put it that way...

            1. re: tatamagouche

              It wouldn't be very hard to DIY.

                Heh. Good point.

        2. re: DoubleMan

          Actually, Vosges milk chocolate is quite dark for a milk chocolate. Tastes somewhere in between milk and dark.

        3. The Wasik's who run The Cheese Shop in Wellesley carry Vosge. Don't know if they have the bacon-bar, though a quick phone call could tell you. i think you can order them on line too.

            I was in Wasik's today and asked Carol to order these. She said they will be going to the food show in NY and will order them!

          2. Cardullo's in Harvard Sq sells Vosges [Barcelona bar is my fave] but it varies as to how many varieties they have at any given time. Dunno about the bacon one...haven't seen it yet.

              cardullo's also sells some german line of chocolate bars (can't remember the name), and there must be about 20 flavors with funny names and wacky ingredients. the wrappers are very artsy . . . and i think there might have been a bacon flavor among them. banana curry, egg cream, etc.

              i've also seen vosges at the wine gallery (basically a little outpost of temper chocolates) on rte 9 in brookline.

              1. re: dchow

                That would be Zotter - they appear to be Austrian, actually. They're mentioned in this thread:
                http://www.chowhound.com/topics/407424
                and I noticed that they had a bar involving bacon. The flavorings are really out there, but many are intriguing.

                1. re: Allstonian

                  Cardullo's had about 83 types of Vosges (including olive?), but no bacon as of last weekend.

                  The Cambridge Savenor's (92 Kirkland St.) sells the plum and candied bacon (!) flavor of Zotter (but not the pure "bacon bits" kind). I bought one but have not tried it yet, as at $6.79 a bar I feel I need to save it for a special occasion....

                  1. re: mbtabus69

                    Wow - someplace even pricier than Cardullo's! Apparently they have the Zotter bars for $5.95 (though I don't know if they have bacon.)

            2. I think I've seen Vosges at FK, but can't remember looking for the bacon one. I'd check Savenor's too; they have a nice chocolate collection. By the way, I think bacon and almost anything sounds divine. I'm still waiting to make some bacon cookies.

                re: bacon cookies, don't know if they still make them, but I had a sardine escabeche with bacon shortbread at Aujourd'hui a few months ago. Very good.

                1. re: limster

                  Bacon shortbread - excellent! Thanks for the tip.

              2. Update: I went to that aforementioned little gourmet store in Copley, upstairs from Turner Fisheries, bought a couple of bars (they carry like 10 kinds) and told the woman behind the counter about the bacon bar. She promised to order some.

                1. According to my local chocolate specialty shop, although they show them as available, Vosges hasn't shipped the bacon bars yet. They hope to get them in their next shipment.
