    I love the Sizzler reference 🙂

    There were just too many funny things in this post!! 🙂
    I can’t imagine that Fabio was ever appealing but I’d love to know too.
    I think I’ve eaten those bacon bits at Sizzler (cringe).
    It’s depressing how expensive a university education is. But let’s end on a positive note – you have survived winter and each week will bring you closer to summer. 🙂

    What is with the Kardashian covers? I must admit that I was shocked at the amount of them too! And how do they find the time to pose for them? 😛 I had to read over the label for this chocolate twice! 😛

    What a wacky bar.. glad it didn’t disappoint. 🙂

    bacon! urgh!! and vegan bacon!! double urgh!

  6. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table

    This is so cool! Kat (my guest-poster) had a TVP recipe on my blog a couple of weeks ago… seeing this makes me want to use it and turn my Bacon-Chocolate Chip Cookies into a vegan treat!

    The sizzlers reference means far more to me than fabio – though I can’t remember if I ever ate there. I was very excited to see vegan bacon chocolate – want some in Australia just for the novelty – or maybe I just need to cook my own tofu bacon into a chocolate slice – stay tuned….

    Interesting! Looks like a fun chocolate to try.

  9. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    I too am mystified by this obsession with the Kardashians…I know they’re rich…but what else?

    This bar sounds interesting and I would totally try it if I could find it in Canada!

    PS. LOVELY meeting you yesterday, made my week 🙂

    Sizzler still lives.

    In Kogarah (sth syd) and Qld.

    Sadly, no. 1 could relate to our magazine stands here in Oz at the moment too … gah!

    I loved the parmesan crusted bread at Sizzler, we even used to make it at home.

    If they’re going to put bacon in Chocolate, best that it’s vegan. Thanks for this information.

  13. Catherine

    I just don’t understand. For what reason would anyone want bacon their chocolate or chocolate in their bacon? I’m not there.
    And Kim! Gah!

  14. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I’m a little speechless at the vegan bacon bits. I could, however, say a lot about Sizzlers. I don’t think we ever went as a family, but there was a period where lots of 12-year-old-ish friends had birthdays there, and I always excelled at eating far more dessert than one child has any right to eat. Ah, the bliss of self-made ice cream sundaes.

    What an err “appetising” block of choc. As much as I love bacon, this combination seems vaguely odd 😛

  16. CCU

    I am veg so bacon and chocolate is even more what!? 😛

    I remember Sizzler! I remember thinking it was *such* a huge treat when I was a kid! Although looking back at it now, I don’t think it really could have been that good, haha!

    Oh, Fabio. Can’t remember the last time I thought of him, and has he ever not been a joke? I never got the appeal either, it seemed to me that he was for middle-aged ladies when I was in high school. But I do remember one time he was making some kind of an appearance at the mall, and the cookie company my best friend worked for was hired to cater the event. She fought through the gaggles of fans to bring him his fruit plate, and he told her “I didn’t want starfruit.” or was it “I asked for starfruit”? Either way, the quantity of starfruit was unsatisfactory. But he still gave her a big tip. True story.

    Vegan bacon chocolate! Genius! I, for one, love the bacon in sweets craze and hope it never ends.

    We went to A LOT of crappy chain restaurants when I was a kid, but I have no memories of Sizzler, though there were a few of them in the area. I feel strangely left out.

    And those ‘bacon bits’ at Sizzler were most def. the fake variety 🙂

  21. Hotly Spiced

    I’ve heard the portion sizes in American restaurants are enormous. A friend of mine who lives there just posted a photo on FB of a creme caramel she ordered and it came out with sides on either side of the creme caramel that were just as large as the dessert she ordered. It was like it was a dessert for three. And as for your brother ordering ice cream after pickled onions – I thought only pregnant women could get away with that xx

  22. Iron Chef Shellie

    Oh Sizzler was a scary place 😛

    WTF about the breakfast side dishes!? bahaha tha’ts insaneballs!

  23. hungryandfrozen

    You make me miss the USA (and you!) magazine covers and all. Not LEAST because of those huge sides with your breakfast. Fascinated by the almost-but-not-quite bacon taste of this vegan bacon.

    Could you believe it wasn’t bacon?

    Plot twist: you won’t believe it’s not chocolate.

  25. Kris Kellens

    What a wonderful review of the weirdest chocolate I encountered up till date. Mind you, I’m still very green around the ears when it comes to fine chocolate….

    Still not sure if this type of mixing in strange ingredients is a good thing, but in the mean time I can’t get Homer Simpson out of my head while he goes “aaaaarghhh… beacon… hmmmmm”.

    May the States bring endless streams of weird foods to your attention Hannah! 🙂

    I believe I also went to Sizzlers once, and alternated between savoury courses and desserts. I may have actually ended up having 4 desserts. I may have ended up being very sick as well. Buffets are not made for children with no ice-cream boundaries.
