In 2006, my daughter bet I couldn't eat a different chocolate each day for a year. I enjoyed that year so much that, after 16+ years, I'm still eating a different chocolate every day. Happily, even after 5,860+ chocolates, there are still many more to try. Thank you to all who continue to be part of this global adventure.

In honor of Day #8 of Chocolate and Backyard Barbeque and Bacon Theme Week, I made a popcorn parfait jar with three different kinds of popcorn. The bottom layer was made up of FixMix Popcorn from FunkyChunky, Inc. (Edina, MN) -- caramel popcorn drizzled with dark, milk and white chocolate.
The middle layer in this glass parfait jar was olive oil popcorn with a hint of barbeque sauce. And the top layer was BaconPOP, bacon-flavored, gluten-free popcorn from Justin and David (J and D's Foods, Inc.). Too bad we had to eat through the first two layers to get to the bottom layer with the chocolate, as we were stuffed after we ate the very rich and sweet FixMix blend.
We also sampled some BLT (bacon, lettuce and tomato flavored) potato chips from Lay's. Summer fresh fruits and nuts made up the rest of this backyard barbeque snack and dessert buffet.
