I've seen it done on the food network before and have always been curious: What do bacon and chocolate taste like when combined? Well just the other day I had the chance to find out. I didn't actually get to try this particular bar, but rather one of my co-workers bought me a box of six gourmet chocolates for my birthday from a chocolate shop here in Cleveland's trendy little neighborhood, Tremont. The shop, Lilly Handmade Chocolates, offers a wide array of unique and delectable chocolatey confections but their Mike Truffle which is  named for food network Iron Chef and owner of Cleveland's own Lola and Lolita, Michael Symon, is like nothing I have ever tasted before. Made with smoked bacon and topped with organic maple butter all in a delicious chocolate shell it's a small taste of heaven. 

Now my disclaimer: Though I found this truffle to be ridiculously good, I can't imagine eating an entire candy bar based on the concept and I've never tried Vosges Mo's Bacon Bar. This is a culinary decadence that, in my opinion, should be taken in baby steps. That being said, if you love chocolate and you love bacon you owe it to yourself to at least try this but tread lightly and do your research.

Vosges Mo's Bacon Bar
For years, I lived with the understanding that "Bacon makes everything better." Need to make that bland turkey sandwich more exciting? Bacon! What about this otherwise non-fattening but boring romaine salad? Bacon! Seasonal affective disorder? Bacon! Unfortunately, this once-reassuring assumption came to an end when I tried Mo's Bacon Bar, from gourmet chocolatier Vosges. This $6 chocolate bar consists of milk chocolate (41% cacao), mixed with smoked salt and bits of applewood smoked bacon. It sounds …
