Chocolate Bacon!

Yes, bacon and chocolate together at last. Now, this wasn't an impulse buy. I've seen it at Whole Foods for over a year and could never bring myself to eat it alone, but we had some friends over last week who share a love of bacon. Believe it or not, it tasted good. At first you only taste the chocolate, but then the salt and smokey bacon flavor emerge. And its, not just bacon flavoring. It's real bacon bits. I'm not sure I would buy it again, but to have had it once was great. This tops the bacon cookie as best bacon flavored far.

Saw Watchmen yesterday and still haven't decided how I feel about the film. Visually stunning. And very faithful to the imagery and feel of the setting. In fact, as you watch the movie you could take snapshots and insert them onto the pages. But maybe that's one of my problems with it. In some ways, it fells much more like a companion to the comic than an independent project. And for the ending, yeah they changed it and while it works on some levels, it loses ALOT of the significance that the original story placed on the final act. I was so excited to see the movie, and while I am a little disappointed in the end result, overall I did enjoy it. How can you not, its the Watchmen on the big screen? Now I guess I'm just gonna have to wait and see the extended director's cut when it comes out on DVD.

So the first entry in a really long time, and its about food? Yup, a series of bacon related foods have inspired me. First there was the recipe for Candied Bacon in the LA Times. Then there was the release of Baconnaise! Yes, its bacon flavored mayonnaise. The best news, however, was my discovery in San Diego of bacon flavored cookies. They were kind like a merangue with maple creme in the middle and bacon sprinkled on top. So tasty!

Here is the cookie.

And here I am tasting it.
