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.

Chocolate Coated Bacon

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?

Sounds good to me! i love the whole salty and sweet thing. Salted caramel is my fav so why not chocolate covered bacon?

Well, I've had the courage to try camenbert-stuffed chocolates here in France - but I was not as enthousiast as you about the bacon. After all, I've tried fried mopani-worms, green ants, bbq-d crocodile ... So yes, I would try the chocolate-coated bacon!

Camembert chocolates sound intriguing Talitha! Any good? That reminded me of the chocolate coated cheese we were served for breakfast by our homestay lady in Moscow. Now that wasn't so good!

I'd definitely eat it. I have a recipe to make it, just haven't done it yet.
