Review: Bacon Chocolate Bar

As soon as I saw a bacon chocolate bar existed I had to try it. The other day a Mo’s Dark Chocolate Bacon bar was mine:

Bacon Chocolate Bar

The bar looks like a typical chocolate bar. Please excuse the waviness on the square here. I forgot to put it in the fridge and it got a little soft. A few hours in the fridge hardened it back up but the bar has chocolate waves now.

The taste is anything but typical. The bacon taste hit my tongue first with the chocolate coming in right behind. This is one amazing treat. It’s an intense taste and one square satisfies my sweet teeth.

But it’s not overly sweet though. The bacon really is the predominant flavor. I tend to crave a snack that’s sweet and salty. This bacon bar is perfect for those cravings.

It’s not a cheap candy bar. This baby cost me $9 online. Nine bucks for a chocolate bar feels silly since my normal bars cost a third of this one. But then the bacon chocolate bar tastes so decadent that it was totally worth it. Vosges Chocolate makes the bar. Their website has so many drool worthy snacks-like the bacon truffles. Yum!

New Mexico Prostitution Bust

NM Prostitution Bust

From the NY Post:
Upper West Side prof ran hooker Web site: cops
“This physics professor was a little too interested in human anatomy.

A college teacher from the Upper West Side known as a nerdy scientist and doting grandfather had a shocking second life — running a New Mexico-based prostitution ring that sold high-priced hookers to randy rednecks, police said yesterday.

David Flory, 68, of Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey — a specialist in quantum theory and its relation to astronomy — will need more than an advanced degree to beat the 40 felony counts of promoting prostitution that landed him in an Albuquerque jail cell on $100,000 bail.


Flory’s high-security “Southwest Companions” had an impressive client list of about 1,400 johns, whom he hooked up with a stable of 200 cybersluts. They included Phoenix hooker Andrea Moorehead, who offered a $1,400 date that promises “two hours out/two hours in,” police said.”

One thing you can’t see in the above snippet is the words in the url to the story. The phrase “master of the tarts” is in the permalink. Not that I expect high journalism from the NY Post but still that phrase is so bad.

What really pisses me off is several stories called “Andrea Moorehead” a hooker. Not an accused hooker, not accused of prostitution but a hooker. Some may say this is a minor point but I don’t think so. I haven’t come across anything that says Moorehead has been proven guilty of prostitution. She hasn’t had her day in court. Any yet many news stories that I read today go ahead and try to slut shame her with the hooker label. So far all the stories I’ve seen about the two men arrested have made sure to include “accused” or “alleged” while talking about them. This story and many others also lead with a sexy picture of a woman that was part of the Southwest Companions website. So tasteless-using a picture like that because sex sells while condemning prostitution.

If you scroll to the bottom of the story you’ll see some good comments. The very first one is from Annie Sprinkle herself! She says “Sex workers and academics are a wonderful complimentary blend.” Right on sister!

From the Albuquerque Journal:
BREAKING: Prostitution Probe Expands To Ex-UNM President
“Albuquerque police said this afternoon that former University of New Mexico President F. Chris Garcia’s alleged role in a prostitution ring was to go out and solicit new “talent.”

They said Garcia, 71, was an alleged member of the ring’s “Hunt Club,” in charge of soliciting women for the business.

Police said they don’t believe Garcia’s motive was to make money but rather to provide a safe place for prostitution without risk of arrest.

Garcia has been booked into the Metropolitan Detention Center on a $35,000 cash or surety bond on charges of promoting prostitution, tampering with evidence and conspiracy, MDC records show.”

I almost blogged about this bust last night. But it was late and the post was only half done so I decided to put it off. When I picked it up today I found the above story. Wow, I didn’t expect a former college president to be involved. This story has so many twists.

From KOB:
Former online prostitution website owner arrested
“A second arrest was made in the case of David Flory, the New Jersey professor arrested in Albuquerque for running an online prostitution ring.

A woman who may have owned the website before Flory is now facing charges.


She is charged with intimidation of a witness and accused of harassing a woman who may have helped police take down David Flory.”

She allegedly made threats on a website that was known to be infiltrated by the police? If this is true then what the hell was she thinking? Surely police are monitoring the site even more since this story hit the media.

One thing I haven’t been seeing mention of is the West Mesa Murders. I blogged about them here and here. The murders now have their own Wiki page.

The West Mesa Murders are still unsolved and the killer could still be alive and free somewhere. The NM police have repeatedly asked prostitutes to volunteer any information they may have. But in the light of this prostitution bust what person would? What prostitute could trust the NM police to not arrest her even if she had useful information? I worry this bust and the publicity around it could hurt the West Mesa investigation; that makes me angry and frustrated with our justice system.

The police has said they care about these dead women and want to bring the killer to justice. Don’t they see how such a bust could hurt the investigation?

And are they really helping the living prostitutes? No, they want to arrest the living ones and lock them away for daring to make a living with their bodies. How many women, and men, are going to lose business over this? Will their work bounce back in time to pay their rent and other bills?

Why are the dead women in need of justice while living prostitutes need to be punished and/or changed into “acceptable” citizens? When will prostitutes get the respect and justice they deserve whether they are alive or dead?

And when will we finally decriminalize prostitution? It’s 2011-shouldn’t women have full control of what goes in and out of their bodies by now?

Kissing Couple

I love this picture so much!

Kissing Couple

The full picture can be found here along with many photos of the Vancouver riots.

The amazing thing is the couple has already been identified. From CBC:
EXCLUSIVE: Vancouver riot’s ‘kissing couple’ tell their story
“Scott Jones says he was just trying calm his girlfriend down after they both had been hit by Vancouver police when the now-famous photos of them lying in the street and kissing was taken in the midst of Wednesday night’s riot.

“They started beating us with the shields, like trying to get us to move,” Jones told CBC News in an exclusive television interview Friday.

“We weren’t being aggressive towards [police] or anything like that. But eventually they passed over us. And that’s when we were on the ground. She was a bit hysterical afterwards, obviously, and I was just trying to calm her down,” said Jones, 29, an Australian who’s been in Canada for six months.”

The interview with the couple was so cute. To me this picture represents that in the midst of violence and madness love will triumph. Maybe I’m putting too emo a spin on it but the pic really moved me. Just beautiful! Kudos to the photographer who captured it.

From Kinky World:
Sex Toy Collecting
“You see, I have a hobby of sorts. Yes, I love reviewing, and yes, I love actually using the sex toy, but my love for my “job” resides in the fact that I just love COLLECTING all of my sex toys. However, I’m not really sure I realized how many toys I had until, while doing these pictures, the boyfriend said “I have to pee”, and I told him to avoid the dildos. That’s an interesting conversation I never thought I’d have.”

This sex toy collection is pretty impressive! Lots of cool pics at the link above.

From Tits and Sass:
Indigenous People In The Sex Trade Speak Out
“We as Indigenous peoples who have current and/or former life experience in the sex trade and sex industries met on unceeded Coast Salish Territory in Vancouver on Monday April 11th 2011. In a talking circle organized by the Native Youth Sexual Health Network we wish to share the following points about our collective discussion so that we may speak FOR ourselves and life experiences:

-We recognize that many of us have multiple identities and communities that we belong to – some of us take up the title of “sex worker” while others do not see themselves this way. We have a myriad of experiences in the sex trade, everything from violence, coercion, to survival, getting by, empowerment, and everything in between. We want to give voice to these issues so that those who are CURRENTLY involved in sex work and the sex industries feel supported and are the primary place where decisions surrounding our lives are made. We should not be made to feel judged, blamed, or shunned from ANY of the communities we belong to or are coming from. We are the best deciders of what we want our lives to be.”

The Facebook link for this group is here.

Wow, this was a powerful read.

From Va Va Voom:
History of the Condom
“Condom’s history goes back many centuries. They’ve traditionally been used as contraceptives and over the last 400 years have been found to help prevent sexually transmitted diseases. While religions and politicians have continually tried to hinder condom use, harming untold numbers of people, scientific reasoning has prevailed and made condoms important tools in the fight to stop the AIDS pandemic and have become a significant tool in family planning.”

Here’s one of the entries-”Late 1890’s-Sexual education classes were introduced to public schools for the first time, teaching about venereal diseases and how they were transmitted. They generally taught that abstinence was the only way to avoid sexually transmitted diseases.” How ironic that over a hundred years later many school still teach abstinence only as a way to prevent disease.

They also have a shorter history of the vibrator here.

From Adele Haze:
Fun spanking boys
“I was lazily browsing the keywords that had brought people to my site, when one search phrase jumped out at me.

“Is it fun spanking boys?” an unknown searcher had asked Google.

If by “boys” we mean “grown consenting men”, then I would like to take a moment to let my eyes glaze over in a lust-filled daydream. How much fun is spanking boys, let me count the ways…”

Adele captures the fun of spanking so well in the above post.

Sex News Roundup

Sex News Roundup

Escorts complain Utah law makes acting sexy illegal
“Two escort services have filed a federal lawsuit to halt a Utah solicitation law they fear could lead to the arrest of strippers or escorts who are simply acting sexy.

Utah defines solicitation as a person agreeing to sex in exchange for money. A new law that went into effect this month broadened the definition to include any person who indicates through lewd acts, such as exposing or touching themselves, that they intend to exchange sex for money.”

When I first heard about this story I was sure it was an Onion article. Sounds like Utah needs a Slut Walk to me!

From YouTube:
Tropes vs. Women
“This is the first of a six part series created for Bitch Magazine:

Tropes vs. Women explores the reoccurring themes and representations of women in Hollywood films and TV shows.

The Manic Pixie Dream Girl is a cute, bubbly, young (usually white) woman who has recently entered the life of our brooding hero to teach him how to loosen up and enjoy life. While that might sound all well and good for the man, this trope leaves women as simply there to support the star on his journey of self discovery with no real life of her own.”

I just found this YouTube channel and totally dig it!

From the LA Times blog:
EGYPT: General admits protesters subjected to ‘virginity tests’
“A senior Egyptian general told CNN Tuesday that officials performed “virginity checks” on women arrested during the uprising that led to former President Hosni Mubarak’s ouster, the first time the authorities have admitted they performed such tests during the revolution.

The tests were first reported by the human rights group Amnesty International, weeks after a March 9 protest in Cairo’s Tahrir Square in which female demonstrators were allegedly beaten, strip-searched, threatened with prostitution charges and forced to submit to procedures that supposedly determined whether they were virgins.

At the time, Maj. Amr Imam said 17 women had been arrested but denied they had been tortured or had their virginity tested.

On Tuesday, a senior general who asked not to be identified admitted to CNN that military officials conducted virginity tests — and he defended them.”

This was another headline I mistook for an Onion story at first. Virginity checks-really?!

I was typing up a blog post tonight when I got some food cravings. I wanted bacon and chocolate. Then I wondered-why hasn’t anyone put bacon in a chocolate bar? That would be delicious. One Google search showed me it exists:

bacon chocolate bar

Mo’s Dark Bacon Bar: applewood smoked bacon + Alder wood smoked salt + dark chocolate”

This looks delicious!
