Knott’s Berry Farm Introduces Chocolate Bacon Funnel Cake

Food Lovers, Los Angeles — By David Chalk on April 13, 2010 at 9:54 am

Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Vista, Calif. already hails itself as America’s first theme park and the place where the boysenberry was created.  But generations from now, Knott’s Berry Farm may not be remembered most for crossing the loganberry, red raspberry and blackberry, but rather for another hybrid: the funnel cake topped with chocolate syrup and chopped bacon.  (Cue that guttural drooling sound from Homer Simpson.)

Knott’s Berry Farm began offering the chocolate bacon funnel cake last month after soliciting ideas from their fans on twitter.  The decadent treat was supposed to be a one-day special during the park’s West Coast Bash event, but after 20 people bought them, the park has now decided to make them a permanent feature.

The chocolate bacon funnel cakes sell for $8 at Funnel Cake Kitchen in Ghost Town, which was started in the 1940’s as the park’s first theme area.  They’re also available at Log Ride Funnel, as are other alternative funnel cakes with ice cream and chocolate or with caramel.

While the park does warn visitors that their funnel cakes can be addictive, they don’t seem to be overly concerned about the health risks of what would hopefully be a once-in-a-lifetime or once-in-a-summer indulgence.  They even retweeted this

RT @Cooksta77 I believe the Bacon Chocolate Funnel Cake @knottsbrryfarm will single-handedly undo Health care reform. hahahaha

    As a funnel cake lover, chocolate bacon funnel cake is definitely a new one and one that i have to try, i’ve had a chocolate bacon waffle before which is similar in a way.
