Re: Strangely enough ...
Dark chocolate dipped streaky bacon
Not remotely surprising. I remember reading about a delicacy in Georgia (think Tbilisi, not Atlanta) which was cooked pork fat covered in really dark chocolate. First impression was "eww", and after a minute "oooh". Bacon can't be that different.
Also, The Simpsons came up with bacon and fudge, which sounds amazing.
