When I heard that someone had invented a dessert product called "Bacon Crack," dipped in chocolate no less, it attracted my attention. This week was Day #1 of Chocolate and Bacon Theme Week. I will continue with Chocolate and Mediterranean Theme Week (part 2) next week. But, today, Nosh This -- a San Francisco-based company that offers at least three chocolates with bacon in them -- gets the spotlight.

The piece of Bacon Crack that I bit into was an elegant rectangle of sweet and savory goodness, with flecks of (yes, real) bacon embedded throughout a crunchy almond toffee filling.

Founder, chef, and chief baconeer at Nosh This, Kai Kronfield, is continuing to create new offerings, and also contributes to "all bacon dinners" that are held in the San Francisco area. I will be sampling Nosh This salt caramels later this month.
