From coast to coast, from farmers’ markets to fine restaurants, the pairing of chocolate and bacon is the hottest combination to come along since salted caramels. Artisan confectioners have hopped onto the chocolate-and-bacon bandwagon.
For this week’s Top Pick, we sampled 37 products from 27 confectioners who make chocolate and bacon confections.
We tasted bacon chocolates, bacon-chocolate cupcakes, chocolate bacon caramels, chocolate bacon marshmallows, chocolate bacon marshmallows, chocolate-covered bacon strips and other chocolaty, bacony confections.
What did we discover?
Six winners and five runners up that make for delicious eating and gifting.
Just about everything we tasted was good; but we sought a balance of chocolate and bacon. In more than a few examples, you couldn’t taste the bacon. In others, the bacon element was too salty (and we love salted chocolate and caramels).
So take a look and discover a new way to enjoy chocolate…and bacon:
