Imagine, if you will, as I did: crisp bacon, dunked in chocolate, battered and deep-fried to golden goodness. Or even crisp bacon, battered and deep-fried to golden goodness and then drizzled in chocolate. It could have been SO fabulous, glistening alongside the deep-fried Twinkies, deep-fried Snickers bars, deep-fried Oreos and deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
But no. Sadly, this is what I got for my $4.50: a strip of bacon, threaded onto a wooden skewer and deep-fried, then plopped in a cardboard basket and spritzed with thin chocolate sauce. That was it. Fer chrissakes, I could do that myself at home. Should have gone with the deep-fried Snickers - and next time I will.
Don't believe the hype
