A few months ago, I discovered Vosges via a Mo’s Bacon Bar that a friend had stashed in her purse. From the moment I tasted the Applewood Smoked Bacon and Deep Milk Chocolate, I was a bit obsessed. I stalked the website- oogling over the delicious flavor combinations. A few days before my trip to Vegas for a convention, someone mentioned that there is a Vosges store there. My quest was clear: no matter what, I would make it to that store. And make it I did. After hiking 1.5 miles down the strip from our hotel to the Forum Shoppes at Caesars, my dream came true. Sensory overload! Beautiful colors, craving inducing scents… my mouth was watering as I gazed from shelf to shelf, carefully reading each label as I tried to decide what to purchase. Of course, I couldn’t resist the samples!
I finally landed on a variety pack of mini exotic candy bars, including flavors like Roasted & Salted Macademia Nut with Hemp Seed, Ginger/Wasabi/Black Sesame, Sweet Indian Curry/Coconut, Lemon Zest/Pink Peppercorns, Hickory Smoked Almonds with Grey Sea Salt, Peppermint Candy Cane, Mexican Ancho and Chipotle Chillies with Cinnamon, and Chicory Coffee/Cocoa and Bittersweet Chocolate.
I presented the box of chocolates to my husband, though I am hoping he shares.
