    I"ve seen it, but can't get past the names.

    We did buy my husband a bacon flavored chocolate candy bar for his birthday. I will report how it tastes in a couple days when he gets it. But as he calls bacon the "candy bar of meats", we HAD to buy this when we saw it.

    At the Wide World of Coke they had a banana flavored soda. Imagine drinking a carbonated banana. YUCK.

    I'm a Seattleite...can't live without my Jones. I love that it's pure cane sugar and yes, that it's a local company...but I have been drinking it since the mid 90's, when it first launched at the grocery store my dad worked at and he got a case of random flavours. My favourites are Blue Bubble Gum, Green Apple, Fufu Berry, Orange Cola, Berry Lemonade...if I could only drink Jones I would.

    Mike Symon did on "Dinner Impossible" -- bacon dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with peanuts. DH and I were so curious that we tried something similar, but with turkey bacon. It was surprisingly good -- but you'd have to like the mix of sweet with salt. (We already like fleur-de-sel dark chocolate caramels, so this wasn't as big a leap as I'd first thought.)

    We've had praline bacon before and it was very good. Sweet and salty.

    I've had Jones soda before, and it was really good! I'd love to do a taste test of all of their flavors. I think that the ones that Trista listed sound delicious!

    And I think it would be fun to try the banana soda!

    Remember those little Dum-Dum suckers that you used to see around, as a kid? A couple of years ago, I tried a Buttered Popcorn one, and it was fantastic...to the point where I would dig through the pile to find all of the Buttered Popcorn Dum-Dums! Big YUM!

    My sister came from Chicago for a visit this past weekend. She brought some Garrett's popcorn. It was caramel and cheese mixed. OMG to die for. The sweet/salty thing going on there.

    Sweet and salty is pretty good. I absolutely love to dip my Wendy's french fries into a cold chocolate frosty...mmm...

    I was watching a thing on the food network on weird foods and they had Jones Soda on this particular episode because they made an entire collection of Thanksgiving flavored soda. They had turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry (normal, I guess), and even stuffing if I remember right.

    At Target they sell it in 12 pack cans now.

    I've always heard that the french fries dipped in a chocolate frosty/shake was really good. I've never been able to convince myself to try it, though.

    A friend of mine bought a whole bunch of gourmet chocolate bars one day to class for some of us to try, one was dark chocolate with bacon in it. I was super skeptical, but tried a bite anyways. It was actually good. It was more salty and chocolate tasting than bacon and chocolate.

    Here is the site, they have lots of different types of mixes and most of them are good. The bars are not cheap though, but fun to try. Chocolate Candy Bars - Gourmet Milk, Dark & White Chocolate Candy Bars from Vosges Haut-Chocolat
