More on Bacon, Other Posts

Bring Home the Bacon (Lollipop)
Recently, I was contemplating the taste that is natural pork (Pork Chops Taste Good, Bacon Tastes Good). In the post, I remarked about the Bacon chocolate bars by Vosges. So, if those are your thing, here's one even more out there — Maple Bacon Lollipops. The bacon used is even raised sustainably. Now, that sure beats the standard pop.

Bento Recipes and Tips
I also posted a bit about packing a Bento box lunch for my kiddo. For those Bento fans, here is a cool site with recipes for unique looking "box lunches." Recipes and tips included.

That's right. French fry coated bacon on a stick. ;)

Eww... I'm none too sure I'd want to mix any meat with any candy... Maybe my tastes are too simple?

Had a delicious tapas plate recently in Mallorca- bacon wrapped around dates, broiled, I guess in the oven, a real taste rush.

Bacon jam... I'm imagining that taste...

BTW, note that it seems only pig-meats get candied... ham or bacon - but never beef or others. I wonder what it is about the pig that it's meat lends itself so felicitously to candification?

Could work, bacon jam. Love the idea of bacon-wrapped date. Maybe with some goat cheese on the side? Or figs.

I have had "Squaw Candy" or candied salmon, and that is very good, too.

Ah yes... not only pig. North Africans make a couscous with lamb and prunes which is delicious...
