Bacon: It’s What’s for Dessert

chuao-chocolatier-mapple-baChuao Chocolatier blends the sweet with the salty in its latest sensation, the maple bacon bar.

Sweet and savory have been estranged too long, says locally based Chuao Chocolatier. The artisan chocolatier has recently been experimenting with unexpected flavors to add a salty depth and crunch to its top-flight Venezuelan chocolate. Last year the company made a splash with a crunchy potato-chip chocolate bar, and this season they’re taking it up a notch with a milk chocolate bar spiked with bits of crisp bacon, a hint of maple syrup and bonfire smoked sea salt. It’s a winning combination, though one that may be too subtle for the most fervent bacon devotees. Sweet, salty and delicious; who says bacon is just for breakfast? Find Chuao’s maple bacon bar at any of their San Diego chocolate cafés, at the Lumberyard in Encinitas (937-C S. Coast Highway 101, 760.635.1444) at La Jolla’s University Towne Centre (4465 La Jolla Village Drive H-09, 858.546.1463) and at Del Mar Highlands Shopping Center (3485-A1 Del Mar Heights Road, 858.755.0770).
