Finally a real bacon delicacy that is fresh and made out of real products and flavor. The chocolate covered bacon is made from hickory smoked bacon that is cooked in the oven until golden and crispy. My favorite way of making bacon by the way.
Then the bacon is smothered in chocolate, two versions actually, dark chocolate and regular chocolate. Considering this is a very fatty delicacy I would go all the way and get the dark chocolate instead of the regular chocolate.
The chocolate covered bacon is made by California based Marini family, it is one of their newest products. As Joe Marini says:
Who doesn’t love chocolate? Who doesn’t love bacon?
And I totally agree with him, I’m do not have much of a sweet tooth but chocolate I like and I like them most combined with other flavors such as peanuts or coconut. Chocolate combined with bacon is something I have to try once.
For those of you who live in the U.S. you can just order some from their website, they ship with next or second day air. You’ll get a fresh batch of chocolate covered bacon that holds well for a couple of day stored in the fridge. Although I see no reason to store it in the fridge, I would eat it in one day.
You can order your batch on Marini’s website. Half a pound of dark or regular chocolate covered bacon costs 9 dollars and 1/4 lb costs 6.98 dollars.
This certainly beats bacon flavored lip balms by miles. I would give a word of caution if you want to try the chocolate covered bacon, I foresee it to be highly addicting.
