Happy National Chocolate-Covered Anything Day!
Whoever first conceived of the concept of covering whatever food product with chocolate was one smart glutton. We love the combination of sweet and savory, enjoying the likes of chocolate-covered nuts, pretzels and biscotti. We'll even brave the occasional chocolate bacon -- but, as the saying goes, oil and water just don't mix.
Chocolate-covered pickles sound positively unsavory. And as venturesome as we'd like to be when it comes to all things edible, you certainly won't see us marking our calendars for National Chocolate-Covered Insects Day any time soon.
Where do you draw the line? Talk to us about chocolate-covered everything, in the comments!
