Nastiest Taste Ever

Here's something to put on your life list of never to try: bacon-flavored jellybeans.

Yeah, somebody said, "Hey, bacon is good, jellybeans are good, why don't we put them together?" And so the folks at ThinkGeek did. They actually charge people money for these abominations. But since the sample was out, I had to ask: "How awful could it possibly be?"

Two good things put together sometimes produce something wretched, and so it is with this. The taste was an assault, something like eating cancer. Nasty, and the flavor lasted, despite numerous attempts to expunge it from my palate. Gah! It reminded me of the nasty-flavored jellybeans in the Harry Potter world.

So your intrepid reporter tries things so you don't have to. If you really want the flavor, go to an old outdoor grill and nibble the black charcoal bits at the bottom, and you'll get an idea of what it was like.
