Chocolate-Covered Bacon?

There's no reason I suppose, why this wouldn't work - I mean sweet and salty go so well together - just think of peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes for example. But what I can't quite get my head around is why would anyone dip crispy bacon rashers into melted chocolate. But Marini's in Santa Cruz has done just that.

It's available in store as well as online, where it sells for $9.00 for a half-pound box. Marini's also sell a Vegan's Nightmare ice cream - scoops of maple syrup flavoured ice cream studded with the now famous pieces of chocolate covered bacon.

See this gastronomic treat for yourself - but would you buy it?
