"This whimsical chocolate creation came about while I was chatting with my friend Mo, who was part of the inspiration behind our bacon + chocolate bar. I wanted to create a fun party favor for his upcoming nuptials with chocolate of course. Something unexpected for the guests; a parting gift to bring a smile to their faces...a flying pig made of bacon and chocolate! I loved the concept and design so much that I decided to mix up another batch of flying pigs for all our bacon fans to enjoy."

Great pigs    
Vosges' joyful "Flying Pigs" are sinfully luscious. With a careful balance of sweet and salty, they are an eagerly awaited guest at any occasion, including breakfast. Offering Vosges "Flying Pigs" as gifts prolongs the pleasure, while experiencing the reactions. "I must have more!", "Amazing!", "Better than anything I can imagine.", "How cute!", were a few breathless words that spilled out with that first bite. One must give up any ideas of rescue from their addiction.

Not just yummy but...    
I got this for my brother, who is a bacon lover. The idea behind the shaping of this treat is not lost. It is kitschy, but more importantly, delicious. More things should be make from perfect chocolate and bacon!
