It's chocolate-covered pig fat! blink.gif Sounds tasty, no? unsure.gif wacko.gif Apparently it's very popular in Ukraine! Should be low-carb friendly too! laugh.gif Think Twix bar but with a strip of lard rather than caramel and cookie.

I agree Anita.....Dawn, you try it first and let us know how it is. laugh.gif laugh.gif

Yukkkkkkk! Now, if they would just make all candy bars this way, I know it would be much easier for me to resist them! laugh.gif

No thanks! Besides I don't think it's available in this country. (whew!!)

Here's a web site with a picture. Nice presentation, sounds creative.

I think I'll stick to the deep fried Mars bars.

Dave, thanks for the picure! I am curious just how your searched Google for that one! (chocolate covered pork fat - GO)? I am thoroughly disgusted now, not sure I can think of chocolate without conjuring up this picture (wanna bet?)

I was previously envisioning a pork rind covered in chocolate which I can imagine some people eating, but I think it is really a slab of RAW LARD covered in chocolate.

As my 3 year old son always says, BBBEEEEEEEEEEE YUCK!

I searched on Ukraine chocolate fat.

There were many hits on the same story. But who could pass up such a nice picture.
