Toffee Bacon Lollipop from Cochon 555

As I mentioned in my previous post, my favourite dish from Cochon 555 was the Toffee Bacon Lollipop that I took home and consumed the next day.

Not only does this lollipop look totally pleasing with its shimmering chocolate-drenched pig-face contour, it also delivers a rather unique culinary experience...

Each bite flooded my mouth with deliciousness. The texture of the toffee wasn't jaw-breaking, yet required a substantial amount of force to bite into, which was rewarded by the salty, caramelised and subtle meaty flavour.

I am so sad that I failed to take home more than one of these rare and delectable finds!

  5. I've heard of but never seen this before. It really doesn't look bad and comes pretty close to being paradise on a stick. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

  6. how funny that you have posted these when I post about veg bacon - wonder if it would go well in these - I understand salty and sweet but am still a bit unsure about smoky and sweet

  13. Thanks for your comment John and Duskie! I am so in love with your lollipops, you truly deserved the crown! Unfortunately, I have returned to England so I wont be able to get my hands on any more of them. But I will take note of your availability, should I return to California in the future - yum!
