We like to try new foods as we travel around the world, but chocolate coated bacon? Seriously? We haven’t found anything that bizarre since Marmite flavoured fudge. We found this new and exciting culinary invention at the Bird in Hand Farmers’ Market deep in Amish country, Pennsylvania. It’s just up the road from the unusually named town of Intercourse. We stopped at the market to get lunch in the form of various tasters and munchies. We’re cheap, we do that!
Chocolate covered bacon looked so intriguing that Chef ( my husband) spent a whole $2 to try a rasher. The lady was dipping the bacon right in front of us, so we knew it was a quality product, not some mass-produced rubbish. American bacon isn’t the same as the back bacon we have in the UK, it’s skinnier, thinner and crisper, I don’t think British bacon would work with this at all.

Chef’s verdict? Good, very good. A big thumbs up for chocolate coated bacon.
I’m a non meat-eater usually, but even I had to taste this, yes, good, I concur.
We chatted to the bacon dipping crew about the chocolate meat phenomenon, apparently it’s not something unique to Lancaster County, it’s a trend ripping through the USA. That’s good, we should be able to find more on our USA road trip. Was it a highlight of our tour of the USA, well maybe, discovering new foods is one of the joys of travel and our USA road trip was certainly a voyage of discovery in that respect. So what do you think? Would you?
