Bacon Candy??

Bacon Candy 1

You Betcha!

These days, it seems like bacon is the new crack cocaine. Nobody is actually smoking it yet… well, you get what I mean… but it sure seems to be getting consumed with an ever increasing popularity, and in ways that would have been unimaginable not that long ago.

A while back, Baconbiscuit21 (aka Daisy), who writes the Coolcookstyle blog, was a contestant in the celebrated Brooklyn Bacon Takedown and her entry was a ‘Maple-Candied Bacon and Spice Pecan Nougat’. I have to say that, though I have enjoyed Bacon and Banana sandwiches, and even quite liked bacon with peanut butter, the notion of processed pig in a candy seemed a little… well, odd. Still, I am generally willing to sample just about anything and, when Daisy was gracious enough to send my wife and I little sample, we were most pleased to give it a try. I can tell you now that the experience was an eye-opener … the stuff is really, really good!

Quite honestly, knowing that there was bacon in the candy prepared you to taste it, but I am pretty sure that, if you gave a piece to an unsuspecting soul, they would like the overall experience but have no idea that they were eating a smoked pork product in with the nougat and pecan. Somehow, the familiar flavor of bacon blends with the other tastes to yield something entirely new. It is sweet, only slightly savory, and not nearly as rich as I might have expected.

Fortunately, you don’t need to take my word for how delicious this stuff is… Daisy is now making it available via mail order and you can find the details here. I highly recommend you giving it a try!

  1. Can’t say I’ve ever tried bacon candy, I think the love affair with bacon is mostly confined to North America, but in keeping with the sweet/savoury theme I did recently try cheese flavour pop corn which has just arrived on our shelves. Have you ever seen it?

    1. I remember people sprinkling the ‘Cheese’ powder from Instant Macaroni and Cheese on popcorn quite a while before the comrecially mixed variety came along. I didn’t like it much. Here, we can now buy several different types of flavour powders made specifically for popcorn. There is cheese, of course, sour cream and onion, and barbecue…. a few others too I think. I’m not a big fan 🙂

  2. I am over the age of 18 and competent to testify to the facts herein. I can attest to the deliciousness of Daisy’s bacon candy. Further the affiant sayeth naught.
