Chocolate Covered Bacon

Paired with scrambled eggs, placed on a gourmet burger or wrapped around scallops, there are so many options to consider when it comes to eating bacon. The one that we love most: Chocolate covered bacon. This combination of savory and sweet is one that is sure to be a hit with your family, so place your special order today. You provide the bacon and we create the gourmet chocolate covering!

Chocolate Covered Onions

Stranger – and much less appealing – than chocolate covered bacon is the chocolate covered onion being sold in Philadelphia. Originally invented as a novelty gift, this bitter food has become a favorite among tourists looking to get a good laugh. Check out one food writer’s reaction here.
