This Mo's Bacon Bar from Vosges (Chicago, IL) is a bar that most people will probably either love or hate. Count me in the former camp.

What is a Mo's Bacon Bar? The packaging described the gluten free, savory milk chocolate bar by listing the ingredients (a combination of) "applewood smoked bacon, Alder wood smoked salt, (and) 'deep' milk chocolate."

Creator, Katrina Markoff explains, on the back of the package, that her interest in experimenting with chocolate + bacon dates back to age 6, when she remembers eating chocolate chip pancakes with syrup, and bacon.

The bacon pieces I tasted in this Mo's bar were just the right texture; they were still crunchy and they harmonized almost perfectly with the deep milk (41% cacao) chocolate that encased them.
