Bacon Wrapped around Everything

Bacon Wrapped around Everything

By Rocco Loosbrock


When I was a little kid growing up, the ever popular one eyed babysitter, " or as we liked to  affectionately refer to it, The Electronic Lobotomy Box " always was quite consistent in making sure that we knew the fact that Things Go Better With Coke! "


Problem was, I actually tested the theory and tried eating candy bars with coke, cereal with coke, peanut butter sandwiches with coke, eggs and bacon with coke, chocolate cake with coke and guess what? Nope, not true.


As a matter of fact, a few business associates I knew back in the late 80`s and early 90`s tried doing a lot of activities with coke and in the end, it seems it mostly just led to a lot of trouble, severe or near catastrophic financial ruin and in most cases, some serious jail time.


So when I go around the world these days telling people that Life tastes better wrapped in bacon, I don`t expect anybody to simply believe me without proving it to themselves with their very own taste buds.



Now keep in mind, I`m not talking just any low quality, mass produced Mega-Mart " generic brand of poorly produced, processed pork-particle product! No, I`m talking a top quality gourmet bacon. There`s simply no comparison, the same way you can`t compare a bottle of premium quality, small production, boutique style wine to the common swill you can buy in a 10 gallon box. It`s got to be the good stuff, or there`s simply no point in the matter.  


People need to find out for themselves if it`s true, not just blindly follow what ANYBODY says, even me, so please, take to task and perform your very own taste challenges and then be sure to get back to me with your results, observations, stories, experiences and recipes.



Here are a few suggestions that you all can get started with as you set out to verify or test my hypothesis. If you need anymore excellent epicurean examples, feel free to contact me at
