Xocolatl de David Wraps Up Golden Ticket to PDX Porkfest

Portland chocolatier David Briggs seems to have pork on the brain: Not only does the website of his confection company Xocolatl de David have an entire section devoted to the marriage of chocolate and bacon, but his Chicharrón bar — which encases fried pork skins in chocolate — is a glutton's dream. To celebrate the upcoming Cochon 555 pork fest, Briggs is co-opting a classic pop culture contest: One of his Chicharrón bars currently on-shelf at Cacao, The Meadow, Cheese Bar, Cork Wine Shop, or Meat Cheese Bread contains a Golden Ticket good for entrance to this weekend's pig party. Xocolatl confirms that two winners have yet to be found — in the words of Wonka, the suspense is terrible... we hope it'll last.
