chocolate-covered bacon on a stick

Last night I had the Buffet o’ Blog staff over to my house, along with a classified secret guest.  Food was not specifically on the agenda, but foodstuffs were brought nonetheless.   There were chocolate chip cookies, which are always good, but the unique item we had (for which I’m writing this) was chocolate-covered bacon.  And it wasn’t just any bacon — it was Petit Jean peppered bacon.

The flavor was unique: the salty goodness of bacon, the spicy peppered seasoning of this variety, and the sweetness of chocolate.  And to make it even cooler, it was on a stick.

I didn’t get a picture this time, because it was quickly devoured.   But you can imagine.  At least this time, no one brought a “gut bomb“.  🙂

The collective conclusion was that it was awesome.  Although it probably would’ve been even better if it wasn’t peppered bacon, because adding spicy to the salty plus sugary mix was almost too much.  But I’d eat it again, either way.  🙂

more bacon-related ramblings

I realize my last few posts have been about bacon.  Surely no one has a problem with this.  I mean, bacon is one of the best foods, and it goes well with a lot of other foods.  I didn’t intend to keep writing about bacon, but it just kept coming up in conversations.  See, I’m doing it again!  I’m writing about the trend of writing about bacon, and so I’m writing about bacon again.

Actually, I had some bacon earlier for supper…  I stopped by Taco Bell to try their new Bacon Club Chalupa.  It sounded good, and I wanted to research* it for all of the faithful Buffet o’ Blog readers.  (Yeah, I’m willing to make such sacrifices.)  It was pretty good, too.  It had chicken and bacon plus a special sauce, along with the regular taco toppings.  I’d eat it again.
