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. 🙂
