The first time I heard about the combination of bacon and all things sweet, I totally balked. I mean, I love bacon and I love chocolate (who doesn’t?), but the thought of putting them together does not sit well with me. When Darice wrote about Chocolate Covered Bacon last year, though, I was almost convinced. Come to think of it, I was convinced. I just have not run across the product yet. Writing this post also reminds me of Bacon Flavored Lip Balm, which really does not entice me at all. But whatever floats your boat…
If you are into trying bacon in all its possible forms, then you will be delighted to hear about another concoction that is definitely not your ordinary sweet: Bacon Candy.
I suppose that seeing the label “Bacon Candy” is enough to tell you that the candy will taste like bacon. But if the product description is to be believed, it gives you more than the ordinary bacon flavor. While the sales pages does say that the candy is full of “meaty pig goodness”, the sweet part of candy is not forgotten. So what do you get from Bacon Candy? A sweet and smoky bacon flavor.
To be honest, I am not in a rush to try it out. Perhaps my taste is too conservative for this. Still, I wouldn’t mind giving a tin as a present to friends who have a sweet tooth and who can’t get enough of bacon as well.
Bacon Candy comes in a tin, measuring 3-1/4″ x 2-1/2″ x 2″ (8.3 cm x 6.4 cm x 5.1 cm). Each tin contains about twelve individually wrapped candies and costs $8.95. It is a little expensive, but you can’t find this candy in your neighborhood confectionary store, can you? And for what it’s worth, I think that the tin itself is worth the price. After eating up all that Bacon Candy, I am pretty sure you can find a lot of uses for the tin.
