I’ve seen a number of interesting sweet/salty combinations involving bacon, especially where maple syrup is involved. But here’s a brilliant new idea that combines two things that I truly love. Bacon and Chocolate. The Vosges Haut-Chocolat website is not only beautiful, but full of wonderfully inventive chocolate bar flavors. Dark chocolate, chiles and cinnamon? Yes please. Rich milk chocolate with Indian curry and coconut? I’m totally drooling on my laptop. White chocolate and Kalamata olives? Maybe not for me, but if you’re game, they’ve got it.
They have an amazing variety of beautifully packaged gift sets, and they provide helpful tasting guides. Their website gives you unique recipes, just in case the bar itself wasn’t distinctive enough on its own. If you want to go all out and have a full-blown party for your nose and tongue, there’s the Sensory Collection. Not only does it include a palette of chocolates, but there are vials of oil essences and dried herbs and fruits to engage your senses with as many combinations as you can imagine. Have this set handy after your next hipster dinner party. Your guests will be in awe.
I could literally go on for hours about the amazing products offered by Vosges. Having participated in an enchanting evening of chocolate tasting recently, I can highly recommend this for your next girl’s night, gourmet dinner club or as an exotic ending to a stay-at-home date night. I promise you it will be an unforgettable experience!
