Bacon Bash Proves the Versatility of the Candy of Meats

Bacon Bash

Not many people can say they've had bacon tacos, chocolate-covered bacon, bacon cocktails or even bacon Twinkies — especially not all in one day. But at iAdventure.com's second annual Bacon Bash, held at Bowlmor Times Square in New York City, you could find all those bacon goodies and more. If you thought bacon was just a breakfast side, Bacon Bash proved that it's versatile enough to be made into main dishes and even dessert.

New York restaurants Guy's American (Food Network's own Guy Fieri's restaurant), House of 'Que, Tres Carnes, Little Town and Bareburger, among others, were at the event offering unique takes on bacon recipes. And vendors such as Bacon Bites and Baconery had everything from chocolate-covered bacon to bacon soap, proving that bacon goes beyond edibles. FN Dish was on hand to taste all the porky goodness (except for the soap, of course).
