While at Whole Foods recently I was checking out new items and even things I had seen before but hadn’t given a spin. One that caught my eye was mini bars of Vosges Chocolates. The large bars are quite expensive at around $8 for 3 ounces and a gamble as well. After all $8 is a lot to spend if you are not sure you will like a flavor (An example? A couple years ago I encountered another brand where the flavor was curry. That was not a good experience!) So when I saw the mini 1/2 ounce bars I picked one up:
The chocolate is wrapped in a sturdy foil liner, which for hiking you can easily toss the box and just carry it this way:
Broken in half, so you can see the bacon in the chocolate:
I liked it, my friend Jared was not into it. While I liked the play of sweet/savory for him the bacon ruined the chocolate flavor. So it is a treat that one will either rave about or hate. Having said that I can foresee me having it again at some point.
