Bringing Home the Bacon

041210_vosges_tPersonally, sometimes the only thing getting me out of bed on a lazy weekend morning is that tempting smell of bacon wafting from the kitchen. As the typical college student with a tight budget, this smell unfortunately seems to be in my presence only when I’m visiting home.

Chuaobacon13Bacon has been a major part of my life and I’m sure everyone else’s since we were kids. At least in my family, it was a treat, and something to be consumed only on the weekends.

Back in those bacon-filled weekends, I would never have imagined that bacon would someday take part in my other favorite treat: chocolate. The combination of chocolate and bacon seems odd, but when you consider the combination’s salty-sweet effect, it suddenly seems like an obvious pairing. Amp it up with a hickory smokiness and voila, you have a bacon-chocolate masterpiece.

Obviously, a flavor as unusual as bacon-chocolate will follow the popular saying: “to each his own.” Proceed with caution. But if you’re feeling adventurous and need your pork product fix, it is the way to go.

Gourmet Boutique carries several bacon-chocolates, includes Chuao’s maple bacon milk chocolate bar. Think: crisp bacon, delicate maple sweetness and bonfire smoked sea salt, bathed in a rich milk chocolate. If that isn’t enough to tempt you, popular chocolate line, Vosges, carries a Mo’s dark or milk chocolate bar. Peel it open and smell the salty Hickory smoked bacon combined with its perfect partner: sweet chocolate.

So whether you think bacon-chocolate is up your alley or not, I recommend you come on down to Gourmet Boutique and find out for yourself about this breakfast necessity turned dessert.
