Bacon and Chocolate.....a Mighty Peculiar Combo.

 
 
Reply Sun 1 Nov, 2009 09:38 am
Yesterday, my son told me that someone had given him a candy bar made of chocolate and bacon, and it was delicious. O.K. it sounded a bit strange, but yesterday was Halloween and not April Fools' Day, so I took him at his word.

I open my paper this morning, and what do I see? An article about the joys of bacon and chocolate, together with a recipe:

http://www2.tbo.com/content/2009/oct/28/bacon-chocolate-match-made-foodie-heaven/

I looked further, and discovered that there are lots of goodies that can be made of bacon and chocolate.

Have you ever had this combo? What did you think of it? If you have not tried it yet, would you be likely to do so?

@Phoenix32890,
Yep, theres a new Ice Cream joint in Rehoboth Delaware that has a bacon and peenut butter as well as a bacon and chocolate ice cream. The bacon peenut butter aint bad. Im not a chocolate fan because of the theobromine.

@Phoenix32890,
It's a new one on me but I once created a recipe which was principally chopped bacon and diced apples, all fried together in the bacon's own grease and served with a dash of nutmeg and/or cinamon. Does that count?

@Phoenix32890,
I've heard about it on a podcast called Munchcast with Cammy Blackstone and Leo Laporte. Still haven't seen a sample to try it.

Are you allergic to chocolate? Sad

Salt AND sugar, in copious quantities. Just what the doctor ordered.

@farmerman,
That's bad news as chocolate is such a great, natural upper (70% or more being the best). I eat enough bacon -- I don't really need another way to ingest it (I'll stick to the occasional breakfast or Cobb salad, or maybe bacon wrapped scallops).

@Phoenix32890,
I haven't had that combo before - but I imagine it that sweet salty taste that seems to blend so good.

At one time I thought chocolate covered potato chips (or pretzels) was weird - but after tasting the salty/sweet combo - actually enjoyed it.

Dolfin bars have been around for a while. See this site for chocolate combos.

The ginger/chocolate is awesome.

Years ago, I once read that Fettucini Alfredo was known as "a heart attack on a plate". I would suspect that chocolate covered bacon would make a good, appropriate dessert.

I won't be trying this for the same reason I haven't tried cocaine.
What if I like it?
And I probably would.

mmm, bacon wrapped scallops.
