Chilebrown at home

Sunday, May 4, 2014


As some of you may know, I am a fan of bacon. From time to time friends will bring me bacon themed products. Bill & Yvonne on their latest vacation bought me this souvenir They saw it and had to bring it back to this Mad Meat Genius. Well here we go;"Over the lips through the gums, look out tummy here it comes". It does not taste like chicken. It is crunchy with a crisp and crumbly texture. Does it taste like bacon? I am not sure. I was in a little shock with the texture and am not sure I want to try them again. Has anybody seen my floss?.

I had maple bacon salted caramels yesterday. Very tasty but I have to admit no maple and no bacon flavors. Disappointing.

Zoomie, I got crickets. Say the word.

Did you name yours Jimmy before you sampled?

Zoomie said...

Yes, I had gotten the reference to crickets, hence the "eek!" I'm betting caramels are better.

Three Dogs BBQ, That would be the name I would pick if I named crunchy cricket carcasses. I guess will name the rest of the crickets in the package; No Thanks!

Zoomie, So does that mean you do not want any bacon & cheese crickets?

Tried the salted Chapulines in Oaxaca, Mexico. Smaller and thus less visually intimidating than these bad boys! Were good though!

Chilebrown said...

Kevin Sandridge, Were they good? I will answer that with; they were not bad. It was a texture thing. There was some flavoring on them that was supposed the be cheese and bacon but I was overwhelmed by the texture. I will pass on the rest of the package.

Zoomie said...

Yes, that's exactly what it means. :-) But I admire your fortitude in trying them.

I always say that I will try anything once... this could certainly put that to the test
