It's a big hit with attendees at this year's Ohio State Fair-- chocolate covered bacon on a stick.
Affectionately called "muddy pigs," fair goers say the treat combines the perfect amount of savory with sweet-- and if the chocolate wasn't enough, each one is topped with a candied cherry.
The treats are simple to construct. Bacon is placed on a stick, dipped in melted chocolate and a candied cherry is placed on top. Chocolate covered bacon isn't new to state fairs, but the use of the cherry is. The cherry is crucial according to organizers because this is the first time a cherry is believed to have been used in this manner at a state fair.
These treats do come at a price-- each one weighs in at an estimated 600 calories.
The Ohio State Fair runs till August 9 at the fairgrounds in Columbus.
