Candy Bar Thursday!


Today I reached out to you guys on Facebook to see what candy bar I should try today. You had several good suggestions, but Emily and Jennifer Johnson had a great idea…

Get a foreign candy bar!

So Ashley and I went to World Market.


Candy Bar Thursday- Mo's Chocolate Bar-2


And got a Bacon Candy Bar.

I didn’t even know a “Bacon Candy Bar” existed, I didn’t even think it was possible.


Applewood Smoked Bacon

Alderwood Smoked Salt

Deep Milk Chocolate


Not your normal candy bar.  There are even special instructions on how to eat it:

“Breathe… engage your 5 senses, close your eyes and inhale deeply. Be in the present moment, notice the color of the chocolate, the glossy shine. Rub your thumb over the chocolate bar to release the aromas of smoke applewood bacon flirting with deep milk chocolate. Snap off just a tiny piece and place it in your mouth, let the lust of the salt and sweet coat your tongue.”


Ashley and I slowly went through the instructions, we were engaging our senses, in the present moment, breathing deeply, rubbing chocolate with our thumbs, and all around looking pretty silly, but then we put it in our mouth and the soft milk chocolate mixed with the crunchy bacon goodness and… it was delicious!

We thought it would just be a fun experience, but it was actually pretty good. It didn’t taste like grandpa’s bacon, it didn’t seem like a weird thing to have in a candy bar… I mean, it did, but it was good. It was better than bacon on pizza, it was better than bacon on a burger, it was better than bacon and eggs, it was… actually, I think it was so good because it was with chocolate. Turns out you can put anything with chocolate and it is still probably going to be delicious. Like grasshoppers for example.

Grasshoppers by themselves are the food of bored cats and crazy people, but dip them in chocolate and all of a sudden they become a delicacy in a market in Bangkok.

Next week…
