Ukraine serves up chocolate-covered pork fat

A restaurant in Ukraine has unveiled what could be the unhealthiest snack in the world - chocolate-covered pork fat.

BBC Online says salo, or small slices of pork fat, are already commonly eaten with black bread, raw garlic and vodka as a Ukrainian delicacy.

But now one of Kiev's smartest restaurants has started serving the fat coated in chocolate.

Roman Novitski, the manager of Tsarske Selo restaurant, said: "Our head chef likes to experiment so now we have this new creation."

The new snack has already proved popular with Ruslana, winner of this year's Eurovision song contest, and so it is also available in her home town of Lviv.

However not everyone has been impressed.

Dr Svettana Fus from the Ukrainian Medical Research Centre said: "It's the worst combination you could have. I think that people should steer clear of the Ukrainian Snickers."

Ukraine already has one of the highest rates of death from heart disease in Europe.

I think if they soaked the pork fat in vodka before coating it with chocolate, they might have a winner....

I met a Russian today in Dunfermline, Fife. I wonder if he has ever come across this delicacy!

Yes, it seems like the sort of thing that once tried you wouldn't forget in a hurry Ken! :-)

Aww Ellen..its really good to see you again!!
Lyn do you think we could obtain a chocolate covered baked potato anywhere near here?? Take-out prices, naturally!!
Seriously tho, tht's the most disgusting thing I've ever heard of..although the vodka idea DOES take the edge off it sminobe!

I have lots of Ukrainian blood in me. I grew up with pierogies with salt pork, and other fatty Ukrainian delicacies (pigs feet in aspic anyone?)My hubby, who has the melodramatic Irish blood, and the sensitive stomach to match, is thoroughly grossed out about my childhood gastric adventures.
So, he forwarded this article to me and the subject line read:
"You Damn Ukranians and your pork fat."
