The Bacon-Shelled Taco and Other Foods You Didn’t Know Were Worth the Heart Attack
We all have our poison. Some people smoke, others like to drink, and many like to watch reality TV. For some of us, food is everything; we are talking greasy, heart stopping, delicious food. The kind that you’ll literally die for if you eat it everyday.
We get it, in this day and age it's all about the gluten-free super foods, and the fat burners, and the fruit smoothies, and the tears. But there are some meals out there that are simply impossible to pass on in the name of fitness, or even health. Things like…
The Cheese Bomb
If you ask anyone what would be the hardest thing to give up when going vegan, they’ll probably say CHEESE. We could go into the science behind that but the reason is very simple: cheese is tasty AF. There’s a reason mankind will make anything out of cheese, even bombs.
A cheese bomb is when you see something you normally like to eat and then you imagine it drenched in thick, creamy, hot queso. You can’t quite figure out how to eat it, but does it matter?
Here’s an already heart-stabbing burger being bombed with our favorite milk product ever:
Go ahead. Drool. Drooling is not a crime, just don’t order this on a plane.
The bacon-shelled taco
Many people would say that the taco is the perfect meal. Many people don’t know they could do better.
Replacing corn or flour tortillas with a bacon shell is how you get the Ron Swansons of the world to try Mexican food. It’s also a shortcut to a wrecked heart before Valentine’s Day. But, it’s also the best idea since bacon burgers.
If you have any doubt that the bacon taco shell is a genius idea, just ask the Internet. There are dozens of tutorials on how to make them online - maybe hundreds (we’re not sure, we used Bing). But the real genius behind this cholesterol fest is that people really want bacon strips, and bacon strips, and bacon strips, and bacon strips…
Cuban croquette sandwich
If you had to replace one thing out of an already great sandwich, what would it be? You might struggle with your choices but that’s probably because you’re not thinking outside the bun. Bread is great for pretending we are civilized when we eat with our hands, but it’s really a glorified napkin. Replace it with croqueticas and you’ll never go back.
Just look at that thing. It’s like Dr. Frankenstein and Abuela's brainchild.
Peperoni pizza mac & cheese crust
Remember the first time you heard about the cheese-filled pizza crust? Everybody remembers those days.
How could you not?
Someone looked at such revolutionary concept and thought: Amateurs. Then, he or she came up with the mac and cheese crust pizza.
Now there's REALLY no wrong way to eat pizza. There are also very few reasons to eat anything else.
Meat shot glasses
These are the shot glasses we didn’t know we wanted but now we desperately need.
Now we can terrorize our heart and liver at the same time. No regrets, though. If there were a food version of YOLO, these 1.5 ounce babies are it.
No shot of anything gets tastier than these, even though there are also pizza shot glasses and bacon chocolate glasses.
I guess what we really want to say is that health is a distant second behind hunger.
