The foodie mania over bacon is nothing new. We’ve seen bacon popcorn, bacon chocolate, bacon doughnuts, even bacon-topped cupcakes. But Tara Simon (aka The Bacon Vixen) has taken the craze to a whole new level of sinful indulgence over at her Los Angeles-based outfit, The Sticky Pig. Her product? Candied bacon: truffle-sized mouthfuls of sweet and salty deliciousness that come in flavors like orange ginger, maple cinnamon, coconut curry lime, and apple pecan dulce de leche. Drooling yet?

You know, a lot of people look at a latticed sheet of bacon with ground pork rolled up inside of it as an unnecessarily extreme indulgence, sure to cause an instantaneous heart attack, but I look at that slab of protein and fat as — I’ll say it — health food. Ok, bear with me, please. I just read the book Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health by Gary Taubes. I know it sounds like a crazy fad diet book due to its unfortunate title, but it’s actually an obsessively researched tome that documents the history of the nutrition debates between doctors and scientists, and how the ‘fat is bad’ hypothesis won out more for political reasons than for hard scientific and medical reasons. Citing dozens of studies and dissenting researchers from the past century of medicine as well as describing clearly the physiology and science behind their claims, Taubes asserts that the increased consumption of refined carbohydrates such as bleached white flour and high fructose corn syrup are the real culprits behind the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.
