You Got Your Bacon In My Chocolate - Great Holiday Gifts Part 1

The holiday season is upon us once again and the air is filled with joy and good cheer. But while those sleigh bells are jinglin' and ring ting tinglin', you're staring at the list of people you need to buy gifts for and realizing that once again you have NO idea what to get them. So between now and Christmas I'm going to be blogging about some unique gift ideas to get you in the holiday spirit and out of that gift-giving-holiday-funk.

Today's gift: Bacon-Chocolate: That's right folks! Move over Reese's Peanut Butter Cups...because this time I've got bacon in my chocolate.

I'm not sure if y'all keep up with the novelty gift trends, but recently, bacon themed EVERYTHING has been at the top of the novelty gift charts. Bacon wallets (I took this picture at a very normal gift shop in Charleston SC). Bacon band-aids. Bacon Christmas Tree ornaments. And there are SO many more. Honestly, I would have trouble spending my hard earned money on a box of bacon strip bandages. I wouldn't, however, have any trouble spending money on bacon spiked chocolate and neither should you. It makes the perfect stocking stuffer or unique gift for your next door neighbor...AND...it's good! This bar is by Vosges Haute Chocolate (I hate the fact that they put Haute in their name but I forgive them) and I bought it at World Market but I'm sure you can find bacon chocolate in lots of places these days. It's flavor is sweet and salty with a hint of smoke. There are actual pieces of applewood smoked bacon in each bar that gives it a unique texture and aroma. It may not be for everyone but it's certainly worth a try. So get that hard to shop for person something unique this year...and grab yourself a bar while you're at it.
