Beer. Bacon. Chocolate. Three beloved little vices. Now, imagine them all packaged together in an adorable little box, in the form of Beer and Bacon-flavored Chocolates. What!? Sounds too be good to be true, but just trust me on this one.
So, we all know that women love chocolate. It’s in our DNA, we just can’t help it. When a chocolate craving comes on, I am completely powerless to its force and will go to the most extreme lengths until satiated—it’s no joke.
Tapping into the relatively unexplored testosterone-driven side of the chocolate spectrum, the masterminds at SOCOLA Chocolatier developed Guinness® Beer and Notorious H.O.G. artisan truffles. The unique combination of two universally loved flavors (beer & bacon—yum.) with rich milk and dark chocolate will have men and women alike swooning like kids in a candy store.
These handmade, locally sourced chocolates sounded too good for words when I came across them at Foodoro.com—I love this website for its extensive selection of unique gourmet foods, ingredients and gift ideas for every type of food enthusiast.
The truffles arrived freshly packaged in an adorable turquoise and brown bowed box with a description card—including the ingredients and methodology behind each flavor—tucked neatly inside. The Guinness truffle blends the rich Irish stout with smooth velvety dark chocolate ganache. The Notorious H.O.G. truffle is made from Niman Ranch® applewood smoked bacon in milk chocolate, topped with a dash of black Hawaiian sea salt. Both uniquely decadent varieties are delicious and a definite conversation piece.
If life is like a box of chocolates, then my life just got a lot more interesting.
