Vosges--a "haut chocolat" outfit based in Chicago--offers Mo's Bacon Bar, a delicacy that combines deep milk chocolate with chewy bits of applewood-smoked bacon and alderwood-smoked salt. One of the high-end chocolatier's best sellers, the bar has its origins back when Vosges owner Katrina Markoff was six, digging into a plate of chocolate chip pancakes with a side of bacon. She discovered then what we know now: that while everything tastes better with bacon, chocolate and bacon are an especially inspired match. Vosges offers them in bar form, and in the shape of a flying pig. If mom loves bacon, chocolate, and booze, you can get her one of the gift packages that combines the bar, the pig, and a bottle of Rogue Shakespeare Stout.
You can buy the candy in any one of Vosges retail establishments--they're in Chicago, New York, and Las Vegas' Caesar's Palace shops--order them on the Vosges Chocolate site , or find them at local retailers like Whole Foods and liquor stores.
