Welcome to Day #3 of Chocolate and Cowboy Country Theme Week.
Today's Dark Chocolate Chipotle Bacon Bar was made for the Morro Bay House of Jerky (Morro Bay, CA).
The Bar was made by Mama Ganache (San Luis Obispo, CA), using high-quality, smooth dark chocolate with a velvety melt and texture, similar to yesterday's Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar (without chipotle).
As with yesterday's bar, pieces of real bacon added a pleasing savory flavor and bits of soft chewy texture. Together, the trio of dark chocolate, bacon and chipotle (pepper) spice were well balanced and complemented each other very nicely.
Trip notes: A quick search of local businesses near San Luis Obispo also revealed: "Cowboy Cookie and Ice Cream." Unfortunately, we did not have time for another stop to look for chocolate items there. Maybe next year. We did visit Grandma's Frozen Yogurt and Waffle Shop in Morro Bay though. Hats off to the owner(s) for creating a welcoming community space and some healthy sweet choices.
