No Pork With That Chocolate, Please

Sometimes I have those moments where I'm really glad I'm a vegetarian. Seeing chocolate covered bacon for sale last night at the Los Angeles County Fair is one of them.
Now, even before I became a vegetarian, I'd only eaten bacon a few times. The last time I had it, I was probably a kid at my grandma's house. I can't even remember what it tastes like, but this combo just sounds gross to me.

Maybe it sounds extra gross because I'd just been in the fair's barn watching real live pigs. They're filthy and they smell. Oh and, one of them peed on the ground and another pig walked over and lapped some of the pee up.

Yeah, yum. Like I want to eat that. Eww.

But I'm sure one of you swears by bacon and chocolate. All I can say is good luck with that!

As you know, I've been a vegetarian since 1975, so I totally share your feelings of revulsion! I've just read that Bill Clinton is now following a quasi vegan diet (beans, fruit and vegetables) which has actually reversed some of the huge damage to his heart from eating stuff like meat and dairy products. Apparently he was pushed into a change of diet by Chelsea, who is a longstanding vegan.

OMG! I watch the Neely's on the Food Network, and Gina made Chocolate covered Bacon the other day! And she was so excited! It just made me want to gag! I mean, I love my bacon as much as the next pork eater, but not with my chocolate. That's taking it toooo far.

Many things in my life, like you seeing chocolate pork, and more recently, watching The Cove, confirmed to me that my thriteen year old self was right 20 years ago when I decided to eradiate meat from my diet and I haven't looked back since!

I've heard about Bill Clinton making the switch, but I didn't know he's almost vegan. I noticed he's looking extra slim these days (why doesn't that happen to me?? ;)

Rose's Daughter,
Next thing you know, it'll be on the menus of all the hottest parties! Eww!

Caryn B,
My sentiments exactly!

So nice to see you too!

The Cove is absolutely riveting. There's been a bunch of things lately that make me glad I'm vegetarian. I feel like I should make the move to veganism but I'm a lazy cook and I don't think you can be when you're vegan.

This has Jameil written ALL OVER IT. LMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't eat pork but I used to. And I used to love bacon when I did indulge. Now? Not so much.
