chocolate covered bacon….on a stick

I went to the Wisconsin State Fair yesterday. I spent most of the day trying ridiculous foods on a stick. Some were good, in fact very good, and some were not so good.

I had a Reuben on a stick that was better than the original. Cheesecake on stick dipped in chocolate sauce and nuts would have drawn a six star rating on a five star scale.

I tried cherry and root beer flavored milk. The root beer tasted like a root beer float. The cherry tasted like a dreamcicle.

Then there was the macaroni and cheese on stick….not so good. And crabcakes on a stick, which were very good.

The world famous cream puffs, unbelievably good.

And the piece de resistance, chocolate covered bacon on a stick. I’m still trying to wrap my brain around that one. Watch this video if you want to see it.


  1. Now be careful with 'those sticks', young man.
    No running with them, as we don't want you falling and poking an eye out.

  2. I found a recipe little while ago for chocolate chip & bacon cookies. I never in a million years would think to put those two flavours together, but I guess it works!!

    Ummmmm.... how do you get mac & cheese on a stick?? Does somebody have to thread each elbow on one by one?!
