File Under: Weird Food I found at the Summer Fancy Food Show, which returned to Javits Center in mid-June after a two-year pandemic-induced hiatus. And thank god, right? Because I needed more weird food to feature on this website. Part of Chocolate Storybook’s expansive line of gourmet cotton candy treats, this Maple Bacon Cotton Candy has a smoky-sweet flavor you won’t find anywhere else. You know you want it.

Loaded Potato Pancake at Juniors in Times Square

Do you dig comfort foods like loaded potato skins or loaded baked potatoes? If so, then you might be intrigued to know that the Loaded Potato Pancake is a thing that exists. I discovered this decadent fried delight when I visited Junior’s Restaurant in Times Square with my friend Jamie last week for a post-theater snack, and I was blown away by its extreme tastiness. Seriously; I am going to be talking about it for the rest of my life.

If you are not fortunate enough to live near a Junior’s, and you would like to try and emulate the Loaded Potato Pancake at home, here is what I believe you must do.  First, make a huge potato pancake with shredded potato and onions, and fry it until it is golden and crisp. For your potato pancake to taste as insanely delish as Junior’s, the onions will need to get very crispy, so that they add a sweet crunch when you bit into it. Next, top the pancake with a generous portion of cheddar cheese (guideline: there is no such thing as too much cheese), and,  if needed, melt the cheese with a brief pass under a broiler. After that, you can sprinkle the cheesey goodness with crispy bacon, and top with a dollop sour cream and fresh chives. Et Voilà! Enjoy!

How long has it been since I featured a Bacon Thing of The Day on this site? The answer is: So very long. The wait is now over, however, as a I recently located an apprioriate Bacon Thing of The Day in the form of this teeny Plush Bacon Toy. Oh, the cuteness.

Mini Bacon Plush is by Yummy World, and you can see by the tag that they make an entire line of cute mini-plush food item toys. Because someone had to.

Shark Attack With a Side of Bacon!

You might remember this happy Grinning Shark cartoon from my rad coverage of 2018’s outrageously fun Five Points Festival. Or maybe not. Holding a side of Crispy Bacon and ready to chomp, this Shark is the work of the artist known only as Sharpy, who created it for the Red Envelope Show, which was up at Flushing Town Hall from January 5th through the 27th. And why the Bacon, you may ask? Well, to celebrate the Year of The Pig, of course!
