Dunk It or Dump It?: Chocolate & Shrimp

7

 

Today’s what I like to call, “Would-You-Eat-It-Wednesday?” It just so happens that this Wednesday coincides with National Shrimp Day…which got me thinking. Can you pair Shrimp with Chocolate

image

If you’re anything like me, you have some serious doubts about this duo. But, before you give it a solid no, check out these recipes. You just might change your mind. Maybe.

Dunk It or Dump It? Chocolate and Hot Dogs

It’s my favorite post of the week. The time when I get to hear the opinions of my fellow foodies. The day I like to call Would-You-Eat-It-Wednesday?

Each week we assess an unusual, and sometimes weird, chocolate combination. This week we’re veering on the weird side of the spectrum. 


Hot Dogs!

No, that wasn’t a typo. We’re talking about chocolate and hot dogs! Here is where the inspiration for this pairing came from. (Truly, I don’t make this stuff up.)

 

This restaurant hot dog, rooted in Massachusetts, is topped with hot fudge, marshmallow creme, and melted peanut butter.

Chocolate Hot Dog Éclair 

This hot dog, a Canadian fair offering, is served on a Chocolate Eclair, and topped with whipped cream.

I have a feeling this one might be a hard sell. But, with chocolate covered bacon trending these days, perhaps there’s an audience for it? I’ll let you be the judge.

 

What’s the verdict, should Hot Dogs be paired with chocolate?

Dunk It or Dump It?: Chocolate Covered Licorice

It’s time for…

Each week we evaluate an unusual chocolate combination. We’re putting a sweet twist on today’s pick. Although lots of confections have taken a dip in the chocolate pond, this one is a bit less common.

We’re talking about…

LICORICE!

image

 

 Licorice, particularly black, has such a unique, powerful flavor. Foodies tend to love it, or hate it. Can adding chocolate to the flavor enhance it?

 So the question remains, should Licorice be dipped in chocolate?

What if we take things a step further?

It’s the end of summer, but if things aren’t hot enough for you…

Some believe that chocolate & olives have the ability to heat up the romance.❤️
