Most interesting chocolate covered item?

I recently came across a Lindt's chocolate bar with wasabi in it. I love wasabi in small portions but I figured chocolate makes everything better so give it a try right?

It's actually really good! The right amount of spice, saltiness and chocolate of course.

What's the most interesting chocolate cover item you've come across?

  1. I had Coco Sala's chocolate mac and cheese a year or so ago. Sounded odd but ended up tasting really good.

      CHocolate mac and cheese huh? What's the ratio of chocolate to mac & cheese?

      1. re: DCChocoExaminer

        The chocolate was definitely in a smaller quantity than the mac and cheese but enough that I could taste it.

    2. Bacon. Bacon also makes everything better, so....

      1. Interesting good or bad? After travelling in Asia, interesting is not always a good thing ... Chocolate covered tarantula in Vietnam made me run in the opposite direction.

        In the same trip, there were 2 pleasant interesting chocolate experiences. The first was chocolate covered ginseng candy. It was Chopped and grounded ginseng in a chewy base... The bitterness of the root was a sharp contrast to the milk chocolate.

        The other one was a lovely white chocolate green tea ganache with candied ginger jam enrobed in a dark chocolate. This was in Tokyo at a super expensive chocolatier.

            With a really nice high cacao (60-70%) chocolate, this is disturbingly addctive.
