|Cero's Bacon cooked and waiting for chocolate.|
This was not the case for two of the folks who tried it with me. One of them got an end piece and it was far too crunchy and hard for him, he felt that the saltyness overpowered the dark chocolate whose bitterness was too intense. Now this person does like dark chocolate but is more of a fan of milk. This individual also is not a fan of hard or chewy things because they tend to hurt his jaw.

The other sampler who did not like this, disliked it for other reasons. He liked the crunchyness (his was also an end piece) but after one bite the bitterness of the chocolate was too much for him; he prefers the milk and even the white chocolates. He had been looking forward to the bacon, he loves him some bacon, but said he really could not taste it.
Finally our fourth tester had a middle piece like me but his was both chewy and crunchy -- seems like we got a lot of variety in terms of texture for this treat. He, too, could taste the smokyness and the sugar but agreed that that the salt wasn't countered best by the darker chocolate. He liked it, he assured me of that, but felt it might have been much better with a lighter chocolate. He is one of our Mocha Acolytes who had the bacon, coffee, and dark chocolate bar in the past that was a gift, not a featured review.
There you have it, in honor of "International Bacon Day," a chocolate covered strip of real bacon from Cero's Candies. While our team of four disagreed about the product, we all agreed that the chocolate was quality dark and the bacon was honest to goodness bacon of a high quality as well. Therefore, the "Sweet Pig Twig" gets our approval as a Sacrament for The Chocolate Cult. However this would have to be a very rare treat for any of us and we encourage Cero's Candies to try this treat with other types of chocolate to see how that balances with the bacon they use.
