The unusual chocolate bar, called Mo's Bacon Bar, contains chunks of applewood smoked bacon combined with smoked salt and milk chocolate.
Despite a price tag of £5.99 per 3oz, Selfridges – the only UK stockist – has sold its entire stock of several hundred bars within 48 hours.
The department store has ordered more supplies for its four outlets, to be sold in time for the christmas period.
The American manufacturer Vosges Haut-Chocolat, based in Chicago, encourages first-time buyers to "engage your five senses … let the lust of salt and sweet coat your tongue".
Ewan Venters, food and restaurant director at Selfridges, said: "Bacon and chocolate sounds like a strange combination, but the execution is fantastic. It's a real explosion of flavours and people love it.
Venters was then beaten nearly to death by several enraged Muslims for mentioning the racist word "explosion."
That's right, bacon. The bacon ice cream has small chunks of actual bacon in it, which puts some people off it entirely, but fans have likened the texture to pecans.Anyone who's put off by pieces of bacon is nobody I want to meet.
(And yes, I'm aware that it's old. I can read date stamps just as well as the rest of you.)

Anyway, I shall continue my streak of adding Fine Quality Content by providing you with this. A recipe for Maple Bacon Cupcakes with Maple Frosting. You'll want to read it just for the illustration of the Goddess of Bacon.

Daniel Craig (aka James Bond) requested that British bacon be flown to him in Italy while shooting Quantum of Solace. Besides contributing to the reckless slaughter of animals, Craig is totally pissing off mother earth. Seriously? Flying in bacon from England?Anyone who can piss off PETA goes up at least one notch in my book - the Olsen twins' utter disdain for PETA's histrionics has actually turned me into a little bit of a fan - but to do it in such a Gaiaraping fashion as Daniel Craig deserves some extra-special recognition.

Since there isn't enough newsworthy shit out there to even put together an Obama's Fault post*, I provide you this notably un-newsworthy bit of what-the-fuck:
Mmmmm. iPhone wrapped in bacon.
No, I'm not kidding. Although you might be tempted to eat it, just drool over it.
The product page is in German, but a quick pass through a translator gives us the gist of what we need to know -- and that's that this case is unique and available for just about any kind of electronic device from camera to iPhone. Oh, and the iPhone is not included -- neither is the frying pan, as far as I can tell.
That's right. Bacon i-Pod case ftw.
* - Actually, I think I may be able to put together enough examples of enemy countries getting ballsier to produce a post but it is really pretty frightening stuff. Seriously. Buy a gun.

Update: Oddly enough, here's a video from Slublog of pretty much the same menu item in Texas, so you can go somewhere to get your country fried bacon fix without the risk of getting mowed down in a drive-by or mugging,
