Chow Breakfast of Champions

UPDATE: Folks want to know where they can get their hands on this new and already famous bacon—so I asked the person who forwarded me this picture, our own Aaron Edge, where he got it. And, uh, perhaps I should’ve asked Aaron that before I posted this picture. Anyway, Edge found it at How To Avoid the Bummer Life, which found the chocolate at Marini’s in Santa Cruz.
UPDATE 2: There’s no chocolate-covered bacon available for sale on Marini’s website, so I gave the store a call just to make sure it wasn’t a hoax.
Still selling chocolate-covered bacon?
Yes, we are.
Why can’t I order it via your website?
They only have selected items on the website, and the bacon is kind of new. We’ve only had it for a month or two.
How does it taste? Is it as good as it looks?
I don’t know. I don’t eat red meat.
But it’s not red. It’s brown.
True. But it’s really kind of a guy’s chocolate.
Like a stunt chocolate?
Do you sell a lot of it?
Yes, it’s selling pretty good.
UPDATE 3: Aaron Edge has been a vegan for 17 years and he says he misses bacon more than anything.
