The (almost) perfect food

When the mid-afternoon munchies kick in, one of the best places in the newsroom to troll for snacks is over by our features department. Frequently the gang who works on the food section will lay out remnants of recipes they've tested or samples of snacks that have been sent in for them to review.

A couple of days ago I wandered by and there was a box featuring a photo of a slice of bacon adjacent to a square of chocolate. It was Mo's Bacon Bar! Inside were squares of creamy milk chocolate-covered Applewood-smoked bacon crumbles.

I'm not sure why nobody thought of this before. It was a nice juxtaposition of sweetness, saltiness and smokiness. The only thing keeping this from being the perfect food was a liquid center filled with beer.
