It seems as though bacon has become a bit trendy. Not that I am complaining. I enjoy bacon as much as the next gal. Maybe even more. I’ve even blogged about adding unnecessary bacon to cinnamon rolls. (Delicious!) But is there a point in which too much of a good thing really is just too much?
Time Out Chicago wrote about this a couple months ago. Have we gone too far with bacon? Is there a “too far” when it comes to bacon?
Not too long ago a couple a bunch of friends of mine and I started discussing this. But we were not able to come to a consensus in regards to this topic. Is there a point in which adding bacon to something else is not actually adding something extra to the taste of the food?
I am being completely serious. With bacon festivals, bacon ice cream and bacon chocolate bars already in existence is there a point-of-no-return for bacon? Or does it really, as I suspect, make everything better.
And, just in case you were wondering –
Yes, I will be attending Baconfest. Is there a better way to ring in birthday week 2010?
No, I’ve never had bacon ice cream.
And the Vosges Bacon Bar is weird at first but quite delicious.
