You had me at the word chocolate!

Outside of Halloween, the big sweet holidays in my humble opinion are Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter. Other dates which are not holidays are anytime I break up with someone. That calls for something to soothe the soul, like chocolate.

Take Me Back to the Holidays in the 70s and 80s

My mother used to put on a decadent spread for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I’m talking about cakes like strawberry, German chocolate, caramel, red velvet, and spicy carrot cake. She spent hours making pies, like pumpkin, sweet potato, cherry, peach, key lime, and coconut custard to name a few. Let’s not forget about the cookies, brownies, and puddings.

I bet you wish you were invited to my house for Thanksgiving, right?

But, she didn’t have Alabama’s favorite chocolate-covered treat.

Now, it looks like I need to add Alabama’s favorite chocolate concoction to my dessert list.

Alabama’s Favorite Chocolate-Covered Treat Might Surprise You

Let's have some fun and see if you can guess.

Is it … chocolate-covered …?








Potato Chips

Pickles (I know, rolling my eyes hard)

NOPE … none of those … Actually …

According to The Loupe, it is the “Chocolate Covered B A C O N” that Alabama prefers.

Yes, please. I’ll have a dozen.


It surprised me, I thought I was the only one that liked this tasty treat. A dash of flake salt ... oooooh weeee that's good.

Don’t turn your nose up yet. If you haven’t had chocolate-covered bacon it is worth the taste test.

Other states love chocolate-covered bacon as much as Alabamians.

The Loupe noted that if you have family or friends in “Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indianapolis, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Wisconsin” that might make a perfect holiday gift for them.
