I'm dying to try the new bacon bar. Does anyone know of any retailers in the DC/Balt metropolitan area? I actually live in Norfolk, and haven't had any luck there. But I'm in the metro area just about every week. I'll be in Batimore and Annapolis tomorrow and then in Bethesda & Tenley Park areas on Thursday.
Thanks so much!!
World Market, at least in FFX is carrying them but not the bacon bar. I am now addicted to the chipolte chocolate bar. They have that, the cajun bar and the one with sea salt.
The Curious Grape still has tons of them..they are a weird delight..smokey, salty and sweet..try a Malbec or Syrah with them..delicious!
I got it!
I went to The Curious Grape in Arlington today and picked up:
2 Bacon bars
1 Barcelona -- hickory smoked almond, grey sea salt, dark milk chocolate
1 Naga -- sweet Indian curry, coconut, deep milk chocolate
1 Red Fire -- Ancho & chipotle chiles, cinnamon, dark chocolate
1 Black Pearl -- wasabi, ginger, black sesame seeds, dark chocolate
1 Creole Bar -- espresso, cocoa nibs, N. O. style chicory, Sao Thome bittersweet chocolate
Oh my! I bought two of the Bacon Bars because I knew I couldn't wait for the drive home to Norfolk tomorrow night. Just tried it and it's great! The chocolate isn't too sweet and the bacon and salt are very smokey, the creamy and "crunchy" texture is a nice balance. I just can't decide whether it's better to chew it or let it melt in my mouth.
The Curious Grape recommended 2004 Ebano Rivera del Duero Temperanillo to pair with the Bacon bar. Guess what we're doing this weekend?
I'll be posting on the Wine board about my experience and suggestions for other bars.
Bonus, the bars are only $5.99!
FYI for you and others who are Vosges fans, Chesapeake Wine Company in the Can Company, Canton stocks the bars with a decent selection.
