Chocolate Covered Items I would NEVER Eat
I love chocolate—and while I have eaten, and drank, chocolate in a variety of ways, there are just some things I would NEVER eat covered in chocolate. Read on to see if you agree.
Bacon. Okay, now I know that there are a lot of people out there who would gobble down this concoction—but this is not for me. For one thing, I have stopped eating meat—but even when I was eating meat—no. I have enjoyed eating bacon in the past but preferred sausage and I feel either one would be totally gross covered in chocolate. just. no.
Slim Jims. For the same reason as the bacon—I am not eating meat. Even if I was, this would be disgusting. Slim Jims tend to be excessively greasy, and I never really cared for them in the first place. When I bought jerky treats in the past it usually wasn’t Slim Jims. I might have wrapped one in a pita with guac and veggies if I had thought of it but never chocolate.
Squid. just. gross. I have never eaten squid—period. I’m not about to wrap it in chocolate to make it even worse. I really don’t think I could choke this one down. I love lobster but wouldn’t ruin it by covering it with chocolate. Butter yes—but not chocolate. In my opinion, seafood is not meant to be dunked in chocolate. Personally, I think this actually shows a lack of appreciation for the delicacies from the sea.
Seaweed. First of all, I’m allergic to it, but even if I wasn’t—EEEWW! Just the thought of sticking slimy seaweed in my mouth grosses me out. I know that there are people out there that just love it and believe it has great nutritional value and health benefits. But there are a lot of other things I can eat to get the same benefits without eating sea slime.
Bugs. Crickets, grasshoppers, and worms are for birds. There are some who will try to defend the consumption of these things and claim there are all kinds of nutritional elements in them. Well, good for them. They can have all of mine because I am not about to eat an insect with or without chocolate. I suppose if there were some apocalyptic situation I might change my mind if there was nothing else to eat and I was starving—but it’s not going to happen otherwise.
