WISCONSIN STATE FAIR

This year at the 158th Wisconsin State Fair, for instance, all the hype is about chocolate-covered bacon.

It has been a runaway hit, selling 7,000 slices -- unexpectedly -- in the first day of the fair Thursday. Teams now are working through the night to ensure that there is enough bacon for the fair with nearly 100,000 slices expected to be sold by the end of the 10-day event.

"You get a little bit of the sweet and you get a little bit of the saltiness. So you mix those two loves together and that's where chocolate bacon came from," said Jessica Deeg of The Machine Shed restaurant in Pewaukee, Wis., the maker of the treat. "It's a craze around here and it's awesome."

Oh, and in case you were wondering, yes, it is served on a stick.
