Lick This: The Maple-Bacon Lollipop

Leave it to our friends to the north of us in San Francisco to come up with a confection that might leave some of you gobsmacked, and the rest of you drooling. If your life revolves around all things bacon, you might have to put your order in for Lollyphile's Maple-Bacon lollipop. They say:

While we admit that it's pretty far from the norm (it's definitely not kosher!), once you make that initial leap of faith and try it out, we're positive that you'll love it. The salty chunks of bacon make a delicious and unique counterpoint to the subtle sweetness of the maple, and oh, yeah- you'll be eating an oh-my-god bacon lollipop!

We say: Oh really? There are a few LAist baconophiles who might be willing to take that leap. And if you've got ten bucks and four friends, you can, too. Of course, if you like your salty pork paired with something sweet, you can always keep it local and head to Downtown's Nickel Diner and give their Bacon Donut a try.
