Bacon or Chocolate
Are bacon and chocolate the foundation of a good meal? No, everybody knows that is a deep fryer and/or gravy. However, I have long held the notion that you can't name a food that I can't improve by adding either bacon or chocolate.
Now I know right away there are those of you who will reject this for two reasons: First, you either don't like bacon or chocolate. Or second, you can think of things that you would not like no matter what was added to them.
The first group I will not even address because I can't even fathom such a person and you must be either a communist or a martian.
For the second group who are thinking of disgusting things like liver or goat intestines that is not the game. Bacon or chocolate won't make gross things good but ask yourself this; if you had to eat them wouldn't you rather have them with bacon or chocolate?
You see the game is you can't name a food I can't IMPROVE with either bacon or chocolate.
Cheeseburger - Good
Bacon Cheeseburger - Improved
Strawberries - Good
Chocolate covered strawberries - Improved
Liver and onions - Bad
Liver and onions w/bacon - Improved
Cherries (I know this is debatable but for me personally...) - Bad
Chocolate covered cherries - Improved
Oh and don't bother with lemons. That is not a food. Nobody sits down to eat a lemon, unless you are a communist or a martian in which case I don't recognize you in this or any other game.
Just keep this in mind when looking for ways to improve your eating experience.
By the way this blog will haunt your thoughts in the coming days and weeks but I assure you it is impossible to come up with something that I can't improve with either bacon or chocolate.
