Weird... but wonderful

Many people would argue that chocolate makes everything better. We’re guessing those people have never tried to sink their teeth into a chocolate-covered onion.

Around the world, chocoholics are going to great lengths to satisfy their cravings, coming up with concoctions that range from creative to crazy in the process. While some we can see gaining a fan base—we’re certainly not mad at the idea of some of our favorite snack foods getting a chocolate coating—others seem more like a dare than a dish.

If you just can’t get enough chocolate, it’s time to find out if you’re brave enough to tackle these 15 surprising foods dipped in chocolate!

Potato Chips

Blending sweet and salty, this combination is an easy introduction to the chocolate-dipped trend. And maybe the thick chocolate-y coating will make it easier to pace yourself when potato chip popping.

Edamame

Move over, espresso: there’s a new chocolate-covered bean in town. Edamame are the latest bean to get the chocolate-dipped treatment, making it easier to feel like you’re doing something at least somewhat decent for your health as you stuff your face with sweets.

Jalapeños

Hey, if Mexican hot chocolate makes a sweet-and-spicy combo work, chocolate-covered jalapeños shouldn’t be so bad, right? Anyone? Bueller?

Tortilla Chips

Mole sauce counts chocolate as an ingredient, so it only makes sense that other Latin foods would pair well with a little bit of the sweet stuff. At least we’re guessing that was the logic behind the creation of the chocolate-covered tortilla chip. Hint: you should probably skip the salsa on this one.

Crickets

Crickets are often cited as a more sustainable alternative to proteins like beef and pork. Better yet, you can now get them covered in chocolate. See? You’re practically saving the planet by eating these creepy-crawlies.

Onions

What looks like a chocolate-dipped apple, but packs only sadness inside? Of course, the answer is this chocolate-dipped onion. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for your enemy, it looks like you just found it.

Corn Dogs

If you’ve ever wondered, “How can we make fair food even more decadent?” the chocolate-dipped corn dog is here to show you the way. This is definitely one treat that’s not for the faint of heart—or anyone who wants to pass a cholesterol test, for that matter.

8
Bacon

The bacon craze shows no signs of slowing down, as evidenced by the availability of bacon-covered chocolate. While it’s no chocolate corn dog, this is definitely a more manageable introduction to the chocolate-and-meat combo.

Worms

Dirt pie desserts are for the unadventurous. If you want to satisfy your chocolate jones with something truly weird, that’s what chocolate-covered worms are for. At least you’re getting some protein with your dessert!

Pickles

Chocolate and vinegar may be an odd pairing, but this one almost makes sense. Combining two of the most-cited pregnancy cravings, this salty-and-sweet treat just might work, but we’re not exactly expecting to see these sold at Godiva anytime soon.

Lemons

Life is bittersweet. In a more literal sense, so are chocolate-dipped lemons. And doesn’t “When life gives you lemons, dip ’em in chocolate” have a nice ring to it?

Beef jerky? Good. Chocolate? Good. The combination of the two? We’ll let you be the judge.

Scorpions

The best way to conquer your fears is to face them head on. Or, in the case of scorpions, dip them in chocolate and eat them.

Cheerios

Mashing up breakfast and dessert never looked so simply good. Thanks to the wizardry of chocolatier Jacques Torres, this classic cereal has gotten a serious upgrade.

Two rights sometimes make a wrong. Case in point: these chocolate-dipped shrimp chips. While we’re not sure why these two things would ever be combined, this snack is just another reminder of how truly weird people can be.
