Mo's® Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar

All natural fruitwood-smoked bacon is baked in small batches before we hand chop it into fine nibbles. Alderwood smoked salt exudes a campfire aroma and perfectly offsets the sweetness of the chocolate. Welcome to the bacon revolution.

Mo's® Milk Chocolate Bacon Bar parfum includes:
fruitwood smoked uncured bacon + 45% cacao deep milk chocolate + Alderwood smoked salt


Processed on equipment that also processes Milk, Soy, Peanut and Tree Nuts.

Consume within 15 months.

Net Weight: 3 ounces


"I began experimenting with bacon + chocolate at the tender age of 6, while eating chocolate chip pancakes drenched in Aunt Jemima® syrup, as children often do. Beside my chocolate-laden cakes laid three strips of sizzlin' bacon, just barely touching a sweet pool of maple syrup. And then, the magic—just a bite of the bacon was too salty and I yearned for the sweet kiss of chocolate and syrup, so I combined the two. In retrospect, perhaps this was a turning point; for on that plate something magical happened, the beginnings of a combination so ethereal and delicious that it would haunt my thoughts until I found the medium to express it—chocolate.

From there, it was just a matter of time…and what began as a love of salt and sweet quickly unraveled into an obsession. No sooner could I wait to unveil the royal coupling in solid bar form, a deep milk chocolate with bits and pieces of hickory smoked uncured bacon and just a sprinkling of Alderwood smoked salt. Really, what doesn't taste better with bacon?"
15 medium-sized Medjool dates
3 chorizo sausages, casing removed
1 Mo's Bacon Bar (8 squares)
8 pieces Nueskes Bacon
1 batch of Spicy Oaxacan Red Sauce
cilantro, for serving

Cut a date on one side lengthwise, remove pit. Stuff with chorizo and place ¼ of a bacon bar square in the center of the chorizo. Fold chorizo around chocolate.

Wrap in half a piece of smoked Nueskes bacon. Sear bacon-wrapped dates in pan until crispy. Set aside. Pour red sauce half-way up the sides of a baking sheet with 1-inch side walls and transfer dates to the baking sheet. Space dates 1 inch apart. Bake in sauce for 25 minutes at 350ºF. Serve in sauce, garnish with cilantro and bacon bar shavings.

meat? why have you done this?    
Just got my preferred gift from my wife, a sampler and a few additional bars from you, my love of loves! Maker of my very mostest favorite indulgance. And well, you lost a long time customer here. Bacon? some things cross the line of sacrilege, and this has done so. I prefer integrity to ones art over peer pressure bending to food trend.

All good things start somewhere    
I couldn't help but react to David. Bend to food trend? I think Vosges might have started this food trend? And, though bacon is trendy now all good things start somewhere. I think (hope!) bacon bars are here for the long haul...
- Caroline
The original Bacon Bar was excellent ---    
the Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar --- DIVINE ... My first venture into the world of Vosges was actually a result of Moe's Bacon Bar. Having been a fan of Zingerman's for some time, when I saw that Bacon Bar in the catalog, my lip curled at first ... but It haunted me... perhaps it was a tasty treat. Needless to say, I have since consumed many, many Vosges bars, with the Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar being one of my favorites.
- Sandra
I am obsessed with this bar.    
I love the bacon and milk chocolate bar! It starts off sweet, warm and melty and finishes with tiny bits of salty bacon that leave me aching for more. It's so hard to resist eating a whole bar in one sitting.
- Vanessa
A PERFECT MARRIAGE (of flavors!)    
I'm sure with those of you that are skeptical of blending savory and sweet flavors together, you may think that blending bacon and chocolate would not be appealing, but guess what? IT WORKS! The milk fat and the pork fat together make this a velvety chocolate bar. What's amazing is the bits of bacon and Applewood smoked salt gives the bar a texture similar to crisped rice, but much more refined. So if you want something smokey, nutty, and sinful, I highly recommend this bar!
- John P
Best candy bar ever!    
I love bacon and I love chocolate, so when I heard about this bacon chocolate candy bar I knew I would like it. Little did I know I would become obsessed with it. This candy bar is the best bacon chocolate bar I've ever had. I get this candy bar for all of my friends and family's birthdays, holidays, etc and everyone loves it. I've never had a complaint. Thank you Vosges for this wonderful bit of happiness!

Where's the......Bacon?    
I heard about bacon in a candy bar and was so intrigued by the idea that I did an online search to find this company. I was so excited to finally be able to order these that I ordered 3. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The chocolate is ok, not great but not amazing and there was so little bacon it was difficult to find or taste. I had thought that for the price ($7.50 per bar) they could afford to put more bacon in there. :-( Definitely not worth the hassle, price, or wait!
- Erin
Ummm..Choco-Bacon Goodness    
I absolutely just love the mix of the salty bacon and sweet chocolate. The flavor is just amazing. This is one of my favorite pick-me-ups. Vosges never stop making this.
- Georgia
Two Great Tastes That Taste Great Together!    
When I first heard of Mo's Bacon Bars a few years ago, I did a Scooby Doo "Hunh???" But I was intrigued enough to try one. I like bacon. I love chocolate. Together they could be good. Well, they're more than good -- they're superb! I always have a bar or two in my desk drawer for "emergencies." And sometimes an emergency is just Thursday morning. Mmmmmmmmmmm.
- Paula in Playa
This combination scared me at first. But I am so happy I tried this! This is my favorite chocolate!! I love the chocolate, bacon & salty combination!! Way to go Vosges!!
- Jenny
Absolute Euphoria!!    
This decadent bar is the utmost in sensuous sensation! Sweet and salty in its finest form; this bar boasts creamy milk chocolate and savory bacon and delivers with every euphoric bite. I was skeptical of the bacon/chocolate combination but after trying this bar, I am enlightened!! Thank you so much for this glorious creation!
- B. Madison
Spoil everyone    
This is my favorite easy thank-you to the teachers at my children's school. I've converted many skeptics to bacon + chocolate!
- Kelly P
Most Amazing Thing EVER!    
This bar is a must try for anyone who loves bacon or chocolate. My nine year old tried it and always asks me to order more. This is simply amazing!
- Kelli Homza
delicious taste, wish the pieces of bacon were a tad bit bigger though!
- jennifer
Bacon is Meat Candy    
Nothing make my hubby happier than bacon and milk chocolate unless it is bacon AND milk chocolate. Thank you thank you thank you.
- Hildie
This is truly one of the most heavenly creations on the face of the earth...it's rich, creamy goodness against the salty, chewy of the perfectly cured bacon...it is the best of all flavor sensations in one great bar.
- HollyB
I'm a huge bacon fan and this bar is amazing. I can't get enough. I am so disappointed every time it's sold out at my local market. Yes! Sold out! It wouldn't be a bad thing if just a little more bacon ended up in my bar. Just saying.
- Iris Flores
Can't go wrong with bacon and chocolate!    
I really enjoy the bacon collection especially the candy bars because they are so convenient. My husband loves bacon too and he was very skeptical when I told him about the bar but after trying it he was hooked too! :)
- Jamie V
Unique and delicious    
A simple and delicious treat. Smooth chocolate envelops smoky bits of bacon. It has just the perfect amount of salt to bring out the flavor in the chocolate. An interesting marriage of flavors that tastes fantastic!!! Great as a stocking stuffer too.
- Nicole Rubertelli
So Strange, so Good    
My favorite item at Vosges. It's a surprising flavor, the saltiness of the bacon, the smokingness, mixed with the rich milk chocolate. I've made all my friends believers on this bar.
- Rachel Landis
Mo's Bacon Bar is Deelish!!!    
I was intrigued by the name of this chocolate bar & just had to buy the milk chocolate version. One taste & I was hooked. I love the combo of flavors. The price is a bit steep, but that didn't stop me from just placing an order for more....and also ordering a sample of some other chocolate bars.
- Abby Likes Chocolate
Everything is better!    
Receiving this bar was the very best thing for my birthday, and between tasty craft beers and Japanese junk food, let's just say the competition was fierce! I was so excited about this marriage between meat and chocolate that I immediately shared with my whole family, who is in agreement: "Ohmigod. This is fantastic!" ... so of course, I"m going to buy more.

Mo's Milk Bar    
The taste is beyond sensational. It is truly stunning and comforting at the same time. Reminiscent of Sunday morning breakfast with crisp bacon and Sunday evening after dinner chocolates. This rounds up all the pleasant childhood memories and wraps them in Love.
- Theresa Owen
Bacon and chocolate    
Ripe bananas cooked in the pan right after bacon is the only competitor for bacon with chocolate. Now that would be a killer combo! Try it.
- Theresa Owen
for every hater there are a hundred lovers!    
Dear Katrina, For every 'David' there are hundreds of us lovers. I have been a fan since the truffle with bacon in your History of African American Music through chocolate truffles collection (a perfect New Years' activity) and have been giving bacon chocolate bars as gifts to delighted newbies for years. While others have done this combo too - yours remains my favorite. I can get it at several places in my tiny Montana town too - how cool is that!
- kris
Bacon and CHOCOLATE? More like type 2 DIABETES!!
- Rita Emrich
Bacon portion smaller    
When I first tried the Mo's bar it was a definite 5+++ but my recent purchases have been very disappointing because instead of little salty chewy chunks of heavenly bacon I find barely there crispy Bacos-type pieces in my all time favorite bar. Please, please change the recipe back!

Not Recommended    
Bacon tasted burnt and it was over powering. Was not a very good choice of candy bar, even for someone who likes both chocolate and bacon.

Making Best Friend's Dreams Come True    
First off, allow me to say that this candy bar was experienced mostly by my best friend. All I got was a nibble. But what a nibble! More on that in a second. My best friend and I were out shopping after a very long week-- a stretch of weeks, really, so a very long month-- when we came across this wonderful creation. My friend was having a terrible time of it recently (having just been dumped), so I bought one for her, in hopes of cheering her up. We broke into the bar and I took a half a square, benevolently refusing any more (it was a gift for her, after all), but on first taste I knew I would have to go back and buy another for myself. The bacon is VERY much there-- salty, smoky, almost like the flavor one gets from good caramel, without the sweetness and with a lot more crunch. The milk chocolate is that perfect sweet compliment. I don't think I've ever tasted anything so different and delicious. My friend kept the remainder of the bar in her purse for an entire week, eating bits of it when she felt under stress. Of course, by the end of the week it was gone. We are scheduled to go back to the store this weekend to buy more.
- Nina
Subtle luxury    
The quality of chocolate can't be beat, & the bacon is just enough to leave you wanting more!! Will buy again!!
- Caroline
Sea Salt fans, you'll love this bar    
A lovely 70% that's dark and compelling, not sludgy like so many 70%s, married with tiny crunchy bacon bits whose salt and meaty undertone make the perfect counterpoint to the sweetness, pulling it back from being too sweet. Excellent!
- t.b. in mn
I'm not sure why anyone would complain about mixing bacon...God's gift to our taste buds.. with chocolate unless they lack adventure and class. What a wonderful companion.
- Lee
Chocolate tasted fine, but where the heck is the bacon? expected a true baconay taste but was sadly disappointed with the lack therof
- Kevin A
No Baconator    
I expected the chocolatey equivalent of a Baconator, and was sadly disapointed
- John
tastes like beggin strips. :(    
As both a lover of bacon and milk chocolate, I was certain that I would enjoy this chocolate bar, but with the first bite, I was instantly disappointed. The bacon, doesn't taste like real bacon, but instead, has the overly smoky and artificial taste of fake bacon, like the kind sometimes sprinkled on salad. I was instantly reminded of "Beggin' Strips" dog treats (no, I've never tasted them, but they have a similar smell). Still, despite the lack of authentic bacon taste, it tasted okay enough to be worth eating the rest, as they had enough saltiness to compliment the sweetness of the chocolate.
- Melissa
Very satisfying    
Satisfies the sweet, chocolate, and salt cravings all in one bite. I much prefer the milk over the dark chocolate.
- Trudy
when bacon married chocolate in vegas    
I exp this lovely marriage of flavors for the first time in Vegas 3 years ago. Now I have a friend going to Vegas and she is a huge bacon lover and thankfully she will go back to grab me a bar or two now that I'm preggy. I can't wait. Vosges should come to Miami- I would be a regular customer for sure. Mos' bacon bar melts my heart.
- May
Not what I expected    
I was so excited to get this for Christmas as I had talked about wanting it forever. IF A CHOCOLATE BAR SAYS IT HAS BACON...IT SHOULD TASTE LIKE IT HAS BACON. Don't tease me with crumbs, just lay it on me like your price suggests. That is what I wanted you know. SO DISAPPOINTED THAT $7.00 WAS SPENT ON THIS!!!!!
- David Buchanan
Tastes like dog food...    
More like chocolate infused with dog food. This experiment tastes like failure...but mostly like dog food.
- Austin
Bacon flavor so weak it can hardly be called a bacon + chocolate bar. Definitely not worth the high price tag.
- Cristi
Eat Within 6 Months    
I really get a kick out of the instructions to eat the candy bar within 6 months. I dare you to take longer than 6 minutes! This candy bar is delicious! There is nothing like it! It is expensive, sure, but when you want to treat yourself (just for being alive) or someone else, buy it! You truly will not be sorry. I'm pretty sure my mother has increased my inheritance because I bought a bar for her! Seriously, stop reading this review and buy the candy!
- Yalebabe
OMG! Bacon chocolate!!!!    
Just tried this today for the first time. My BFF & I came here on a chocolate tour & this was my gift. I am a self professed bacon lover & this does not disappoint! For those who complain. About the size of the bacon pieces... This is a dessert, not a meal. I prefer milk to dark & this is the closest thing to heaven I've tasted! I've even had chocolate covered bacon on a stick... And this bar beats it! Never stop making this bar!!!
- Bacongirl
Loved the saltiness of the bacon and the sweetness of the chocolate the perfect combination!
- Karen
Where's the bacon????    
The stamped image of the girl on your chocolate and the new packaging isn't going to change the fact that your "luxury" chocolate has sunk. The 'smoked' texture of the bacon is equivalent of bacon thrown in a deep fryer. The taste, well let's just say, was neck to neck with Bacon Bits. I think you should rethink your mission to create a better quality of this bar with better and MORE bacon. I make almost $2,000 a week and I still wouldn't pay $7.50 for this amateur recreation of the original.
- Jess
Where's the Bacon    
I decided to treat myself to a Mo's Milk Chocolate Bar especially after I noticed that it had bacon in it (bacon in my mind should have its own food group) Imagine my disappointment when there was no bacon in my chocolate bar that I spent 7 bucks on. Instead it had a dried bacon bits taste to it.
- Melissa
Deep milk chocolate    
Deep milk chocolate on the front of the package, too. Very cool. Normally you either get milk or dark, but this is deeeeeeep chocolate. And very very good chocolate at that.I delighted in how much sea salt there was in the square I ate too. Just enough. It will be my go-to sea salt/chocolate treat, that's for sure. I normally buy Fran's sea salt/chocolate/caramel candy, but I have been getting a wee bit tired of it lately. That favorite candy run ran close to 5 years now, so I think I'm just at the end of the line for loving my Fran's.I've not got 2 (count em TWO) favorite Vosges chocolate bars. And it's true, Whole Foods (at least here in Northern CA) do not always carry them. I will also include them in my grocery run to Berkeley Bowl West (coffee, bread, yogurt, milk, produce only) giving me that much more reason to make the trek to Bezerkeley! Ya-hoo!I actually bought 2 other Vosges chocolate bars to try, the first one is the Calindia Bar (indian green cardamom, organic California walnuts, dried plums, Venezuelan dark chocolate-65%) and the other is the Red Fire Bar (mexican ancho y chipotle chilie, ceylon cinnamon & dark chocolate-55%) that I have not tried yet. Sounds intriguing, maybe you could give it a taste test and report back on these before I get to them?I only eat one Vosges square at at time, and not every day at that, so it may be awhile until I get to these next 2 bars, as I havfe a Mo's Bacon Bar just opened, and now the Barcelona Bar. . . Bon apetit!Love,Julie
