And I thought this was going to be a cupcake with little bacon bits on top.  I'm going to have to try this, but instead of salsa, I'll try some green chili sauce.  Thanks for the idea!

There is a cupcake shop in my town that does this. chocolate cupcakes with bacon in them and on top. people like them apparently. As a lifelong vegetarian I can say that the only reason I have ever wanted to try bacon was because everyone else seems so into it. Personally (sorry weaze, remember the brotherhood of the kilt) don't care for the smell. and what little bits I have tasted (accidentally) were not to my liking either. This is kind of strange as the nasty frozen fake soy bacon I actually like. go figure, I guess I just don't like pork.

Wyeast flew many boxes of them into SD last summer for NHC and was giving them out in the hospitality suite.

That's just wrong.  I like bacon, but it's not THAT freakin' good...

I would so eat a bacon maple bar.  I might feel disgusted with myself afterwards but I bet I would enjoy every damning bite of the experience.

That was exactly my reaction when I ate one.  Well, that and "don't tell my cardiologist!".
