In Search of the Chocolate Bacon Bar

s

A few weeks ago, I saw a chocolate bacon bar (or is it bacon chocolate bar) being sold, I think at one of the Whole Foods on the Westside. Now I can't figure out where I found it. I've gone to a few of the stores and scoured the chocolate displays. Anyone know where I can find one?

I saw mention of Surfas selling the same thing. I'm happy to go there if they have some in stock.

And I swear it's a gift for someone else. Thanks

    Vosges's Mo's Bacon Bar. I got mine at Surfas, but their chocolate stock seems to eb and flow... So call ahead before you get your heart set... Also, you can order it directly from here...

        Actually just saw them today at the (now conjoined) Pulp/Illiterature store 465 S. La Brea 90036 right at the register desk... in addition to several other Vosges chocolate bar options. Think they were the 3.5 oz versions if that's important.

          Intelligencia Coffee Shop in Silverlake @ Sunset Junction has 'em. Located directly next door to the Cheese Shop, which also sells wine.

          So that's bacon, coffee, chocolate, cheese and wine, all in one place.

            I think they sell them at the cheese shop as well. I have also seen them at C'est Cheese on Hyperion. It is a great chocolate bar to spring on the unsuspecting...

              Funny, I almost bought one last week, but my seasonal allergies are affecting my sense of taste...and that's one candy bar I want to TASTE! Say Cheese, on Hyperian in Silverlake had it, along with al the other flavors the same company makes, for about 7-8 dollars. Am I so wrong for thinking that's a great combo?

                They had them as of a couple weeks ago at the Whole Foods on 5th and Wilshire in Santa Monica. I'm saving up to buy one.

                  I've gotten it at the Whole Foods and Costplus in El Segundo.

                    I see them regularly at the Whole Foods in Santa Monica on Wilshire/23, and at the one on Fairfax and 3rd in L.A., in both sizes.

                      Whole Foods in Westwood also carries these Vosges bars...

                        I've looked both at the Venice WF and at the one in Westwood. How did I miss it? Guess I will look again, especially in the bakery area. If all else fails, I will call Surfas.

                        Maybe I'll actually have to ask a clerk for help.
