Chocolate Covered Bacon: My Waterloo

Sometimes I miss stuff. And you tell me about it.

Adorable children love chocolate bacon!

I’m a hickory smoked slab of Heather covered in a blanket of rich, delicious guilt. I missed the Chocolate Covered Bacon at the Sonoma County Fair.
I could point fingers. I could lay blame. I could pretend that I’d eaten it and loved it. But the fact of the matter is simply that I missed it during our Fair Food Scramble. It is my Waterloo.
I was prepared to let it drop, but people keep freaking asking me about it. I don’t know already!

Thankfully, BiteClubbers (as always) come through. While there have been plenty of “yums” on the plus side, my inside eaters say that its more about the fun factor than the actual deliciousness. Here are some pix and comments from the faithful fans who eternally pick up the slack that I have left behind. Bless you…and your arteries.
From one BiteClubber: “My friend Nick said it tasted like a “salty Charleston Chew” and I think that’s pretty accurate.”
Further description: “Was it earth shattering? No. Was it a marriage of two wonderful things like Reese’s did with chocolate and peanut butter? Not really. Then again, I made the mistake of taking a bite from the fatty end first. It’s difficult to tell with it being coated in chocolate and all. Lucky for me, I had a funnel cake as a palette cleanser.
Ann sends this picture of she and a friend sharing the bacon. And while entertaining, she was personally a bigger fan of the Virtual Reality Ride Booth. Ann…friends don’t let friends bacon and ride.
So what did you think? Love it? Hate it? Send me a picture of you eating it and I’ll try to post it.

  1. Bacon covered donut. Now you’re talking. I see an opening for an adventurous entrepreneur ..
    I must remember this for when I have my Kitchen again..

  2. You don’t know what you are missing, with the Chocolate and Bacon that is..
    Of course for the Health freaks you can use Turkey Bacon, either way don’t
    Knock it until you try it..

    1. I tried it a couple of times — once in a Vosges chocolate bar and then at this restaurant called Animal in Los Angeles. My problem wasn’t the flavor as much as the texture (as mentioned in the original post.) The bacon was chewy which makes it weird.

      1. Yeah, I liked the one in the Vosges chocolate. Bacon is such a difficult thing to do well, because exactly like you said — it gets a weird texture. I tried that Sir Frances Bacon brittle and almost puked. Great idea if it was fresh out of the oven — not so yummy when its all soft.

    1. I know. it’s horrible. i think i’m obsessing about food because i’m trying to train for a freaking 1/2 marathon, and its making me hungry and weird. Trust me, i’ve eaten a bunch of other horrifying stuff, too.

  3. Picturing eating chocolate covered bacon and the going on that virtual reality ride has me feeling a bit queasy. Brave soul!

    1. I had the chocolate covered bacon at the fair. It wasn’t as good as I was hoping. I love the Vosges bacon bar, but this stuff was cold, straight out of the fridge, and whoever dipped it had a heavy hand with the chocolate. My boyfriend and I had one bite and the rest has been sitting in our fridge, untouched, for over a week now. Oh well.
