Bacon Freak`s Chocolate Sueyts Declared Winner In Comparison!
Well, Bacon Freak just got another victory under our belt when it comes to "comparison tests" of our products again those of our competitors by a collection of media gourmets, connoisseurs, aficionados and "foodies!"
This time out is extra special however, because the "thumbs up" victory declaration is this time coming to us from a media outlet that is specifically known for their hilariously clever, often "tongue in cheek, "sarcastically irreverent" spoofs that they take at everyone in their cross hairs.
These wonderfully wild and wacky wordsmiths are the journalists over at The A.V Club. The A.V. Club is an extremely popular and widely read pop culture / entertainment newspaper and website that is closely associated with it`s even more famous, beloved and "Peabody Award" winning parent company, "The Onion."
The A.V. Club reports with humor and an original take on everything of note that is occurring in the fields of film, music, TV, books, games, DVDs, features and luckily for us, the occasional forage into the world of gourmet food & tasty snacks.
To our delight they decided to compare our brand new "Bacon Freak Chocolate Suetys" to the "Bacon Bar" brought to you by the fine people over at Vosges. Here`s what they concluded after their taste comparison, along with some of the personal comments made by the individual judges ruling in the contest:
"Bacon Chocolate Sueyets, on the other hand, clearly contain actual bacon, in much larger quantities than the Vosges bacon bar. The Sueyets are irregular, clearly handmade discs of dark chocolate with significant chunks of simultaneously crispy/chewy bacon scattered within."
"The chocolate is rich and pungent, and so is the bacon, which actually, for a wonder, tastes more like bacon than like salt or liquid smoke. The tastes actually complement each other very well, and the blend of textures is appealing."
Individual Judge Comments:
*** "This is way better than Vosges. Definitely. That was grainy and salty, and the bacon wasn`t as generous, and the chocolate wasn`t as good. I`d pick these any day of the week."
*** "Well, I totally approve. I`ll have another. I thought this was really good."
*** "I don`t like bacon, but I like these."
*** "It`s sweet and salty and crunchy all at the same time."
*** "The texture of the chocolate is really soft for dark chocolate. It`s almost like a truffle."
*** "And it`s actually good chocolate!"
*** "Dark, smoky, a little bitter from the chocolate. Reminds me of chocolate-covered coffee beans minus the crunch."
Thank You A.V. Club, we`re big fans, regular readers and are sincerely honored by your very kind, positive "thumbs up" review!
