Bacon and Fudge

Homer: Dear Lord, as I think of you, dressed in white with your splendid beard, I am reminded of Colonel Sanders, who is now seated at your right hand shoveling popcorn chicken into Thy mouth. Lord, could you come up with a delicious new taste treat like he did? I command you.
[Following a horrific truck collision]
Homer: Mmm. Move over, eggs. Bacon just got a new best friend: fudge!

Happy New Year! It’s a time of renewal and change, and possibly a diet. Of course, whether you need to go on a diet depends entirely on how much you ate throughout December. Also everything you ever ate before that as well. Fun fact: according to some doctors (Dr. Nick maybe??) Bacon and Fudge is a healthy snack! I realize some peoples definition of healthy and MY definition of healthy might be up for interpretation. So let’s breakdown exactly what this nutritious snack has to offer.

Bacon (1 slice)

Fudge (1 piece, 17 grams)

  • 0.4 grams of protein

So bacon and fudge is not great for you, but it’s also not the the worst thing I’ve seen for nutritional content on this blog. But the real question is: how does it taste?

Ingredients

  • Bacon
  • Fudge

Directions

Fry your bacon to your desired tenderness (I like my bacon floppy, not crispy), allow it cool. Drizzle fudge on top of the bacon. Note: do not place this anywhere near the windshield of your car.

Yeah, no way was I going to use any of that pre-cooked bacon nonsense for this recipe. I don’t allow that kind of food in my home. Instead I “pre-cooked” the bacon, then combined it with the fudge so really this is accurate. Bacon isn’t as en vogue a food as it was a few years ago, but you can still find it everywhere delicious foods are located.

Overall, this snack was fine. It tasted exactly like combining bacon with fudge. From a nutritional standpoint, this is obviously one of the best things you can eat…but I’ll probably still try to Eat Healthy (heathy?) for the next little while for the sake of my heart.

I’m never going to get used to the 31st century!

Caffeinated bacon? Baconated grapefruit? Admiral Crunch?

Now I like bacon as much as the next guy but that bacon explosion a few years back when people and restaurants started putting bacon in/on everything just seemed a little over the top.
And you are right, as far as the neglected food group pyramid is concerned this item covers both the congealed group and the chocotastic. Put some whipped cream on top of it and you’ve got a neglected super food.

I had chocolate bars filled with bacon a while ago
