Krystiana Bouchard, 13, of Southington reacts to her first bite of a piece of chocolate-covered bacon at the New Britain-based Rosie Blake's Chocolates booth inside the Connecticut building. Krystiana is the 2011 CT Outstanding Pre-teen pageant winner, a sister pageant to Miss America. Her reaction? "The two together wasn't the best but it wasn't disgusting," she said.
