Cheese Curds. Yes, again

where cheese curds come from

I realized after re-reading my post, Curds are King in July I didn't actually tell you where to get the best cheese curds. They can be found at the Ellsworth, Wisconsin Co-op Creamery. If you click the link, they have the creamery's history as well as a link to order (they ship anywhere is the US) and a phone number in case you want to call and talk about those chocolate cheese curds they mention on their website. When you call, be sure to listen for the lovely Wisconsin accent, yaa!

As long as we're on the subject of cheese I'll tell you also about Wisconsin Cheese Mart. Go to them for all your other cheese needs. Chocolate cheese (it's becoming a trend!), cheese in the shape of a mug of beer, cheese in the shape of a cow, or if you just can't decide which cheese is best, one of these


The WCM website is packed with cheese info. like, how long your cheeses can be stored, the proper temperature, and what can be done with cheese that has become moldy. WCM also has a wonderful German Foods (Deutches Essen) section: mustards, muesli, cookies, spaetzle. The only thing I might pass up would be the Celery Salad. Product Description: This fine sour salad of Hengstenberg is and easy Snack alternative for in between meals.

That's ok, everyone knows cheese is the only snack alternative that's worth mentioning.

Bacon Chocolate Bar and Bacon Extras

I first heard about bacon infused chocolate at Food Chronicles ~ Back of the House. I was instantly intrigued, as I'm sure you are!

I read more about it here.
Their sentiments are mine exactly: the mad, dangerous, lovely chocolatiers of Vosges Haute Chocolat have seen fit to bestow upon the world a bacon candy bar.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Said bar consists of applewood smoked bacon, alder smoked salt, deep milk chocolate, and the contents of every fever dream I've had since young girlhood.

The Bacon Exotic Candy Bar is currently sold out on the Vosges website, but I, for one fully intend to press my nose up against my monitor until they're back in stock.

That blog also features a few more stories on lovely bacon flavored foods (i.e. bacon cotton candy!) so check them out.

A blog named Holy Shitake has a bacon post that requires mentioning because I have been thinking about this recipe since I first read it two years ago.

Okay well, as long as I'm on a bacon roll, I give you this website. Weird Meat "documents experiences eating strange food, as I travel around the world. What is weird to one, is normal to another. I want to find out why. Includes articles, travel stories, photos." Some highlights from weird meat (and I assure you I found no low lights) include Deep Fried Sand Worms in China and Hermaphrodite Frog Guts (he explains it's like a sweet soup) also in China. There are many more foods and many more countries and just so you know, this blog spurred me to purchase Crocodile Jerky on my recent trip to Florida though I haven't yet been brave enough to try it. True, WeirdMeat Blog doesn't include bacon so what is it doing as part of this post? I have no idea, so there.

I'm a little tired, so sue me.
