Peanut butter and chocolate. Franks and beans. Cookies and milk. Bacon and anything. See for yourself…
1. Bacon Flavored Vodka
It’s called Bakon Vodka and the tag line is “Pure. Refreshing. Bacon.” They pride themselves on having “no tinge or burn on the tongue, no obnoxious smoky or chemical flavors, just a clean refreshing potato vodka with delicious savory bacon flavor.”
2. Bacon Chocolate
It’s called Mo’s Bacon Bar. What is it? Applewood smoked bacon + Alder wood smoked salt + deep milk chocolate.
The description asks you to get intimate with your chocolate and to “rub your thumb over the chocolate bar to release the aromas of smoked applewood bacon flirting with deep milk chocolate.” So go ahead and get crazy. But don’t wait too long; they ask you to consume the bar within 6 months.
3. Bacon Water
It’s called Molli’s Choice. It’s technically made for dogs and cats, but why not quench your thirst with some bacon H2O?
If you don’t like bacon, it comes in other flavors: Beef Tenderloin, Roasted Chicken or Roasted Turkey flavor. Move over, Fido.
4. Bacon Lollipops
The company is Lollyphile and they are the proud creators of Maple-Bacon Lollipops.
The salty chunks of bacon (and not just any bacon, either- they use sustainable, organic, cured bacon) make a “delicious and unique counterpoint to the subtle sweetness of the maple.”
Other flavors include Absinthe and White Russian.
5. Bacon Ice Cream
It’s available at gourmet ice cream shops around the country and here are a few links to get a virtual taste for yourself.
From the makers of Baconnaise comes a low-sodium, zero-calorie, zero-fat, vegetarian and kosher seasoning that makes everything taste like bacon.
It’s called Schlenkerla Smokebeer and although there is no actual bacon IN it, it tastes just like the smoky meat. It is a dark, aromatic, bottom-fermented beer with 13.5 percent original extract, which is equivalent to an alcohol content of 5.1 percent. No doubt: there are stronger beers. Nevertheless, one should not underestimate it.
The coaster says: Even if the brew tastes somewhat strange at the first swallow, do not stop because soon you will realize that your thirst will not decrease and your pleasure will visibly increase.
If you’re on a diet and just can’t have bacon, now your prayers have been answered. You can taste the bacon, freshen your breath and enjoy life again at the expense of only a couple calories.
The Final Dish:
Anyone have any other bacon contributions? I told my brother about this and he sent me an e-mail of his co-worker’s Bacon Chocolate Cake that someone made for him… if you look closely you can see the bacon bits on top. Hmmm.
