    Bacon and popcorn with rasinets? Has anybody heard of that before? I've heard that bacon makes everything better but I don't know about this one.

    I think the bacon is on its own(although, just popcorn with Raisinets still sounds odd). I saw this chef and her husband years ago on an episode of "Opening Soon". She seemed nice.

    A bartender friend of mine makes fresh popcorn for his patrons, and mixes M&Ms into them, and people can't get enough of it. I guess it satisfies both the salty and sweet taste buds, plus melted chocolate on salty foods (like a chocolate pretzel) can be great.

    I guess Andrea just likes to take this to the next level.

    I've eaten at Talula a few times, and absolutely everything I've had was delicious! It's my top recommendation for anyone coming to Miami. Definitely rooting for her this season.

    Now that I've said that, I bet she'll get sent home first! =P
