Bacon Pic of the Day – Here Piggy…

Over Memorial Day weekend Better, Lil’ and I made an up and down trip to Sault Sainte Maire to see my oldest nephew Matt graduate from high school.  After the six hour trip, we arrive at my sisters house and as soon as I walk in I was approached by my other nephew Hunter, not with a hug or “Hi Uncle Mike!” but with a stack of papers.  The top sheet read “$1.00 for one picture, $2.00 for custom drawing.”  Well, I had to admire his entrepreneurial spirit so I started flipping through the pages until one caught my eye…

Well done Hunter!  You’ve hit your Uncle Mike’s sweet spot.  Here’s your dollar.

More from Hunter tomorrow.

Taste Test – Snackle Mouth…

is gonna smack you in your mouth!

Snackle Mouth is a “gourmet” granola company out of Boulder, CO. that prides itself in it clusters with a high degree of “clumpability”.

These kind folks reached out and asked if I’d be willing to try their newest flavor – Bacon Maple.

The first thing I noticed…cooked bacon is listed as an ingredient!  BAM!  Those who frequent TDB know that I don’t have much tolerance for bacon flavored food that has no real bacon in it.  So Snackle Mouth was already ahead of many others.

Let’s crack this bad boy open…

Man I need a better camera.  My poor photos aside, you can still clearly see their product lives up to that promise of “clumpability”.

Second thing I noticed was the delicious smell sweet of maple.

So true granola nut clusters, aroma of maple…time to eat…and…


Seriously, I really like this.  The sweetness of the maple and agave, full almonds and pecans surrounded by crunchy oats and a hint of sea salt.  Sweet and savory baby!

But as good as it is, I missed the bacon.  It’s physically there!  There are bits of bacon all over.  You just can’t really taste it.

I’m not going to quibble too much though because it’s a real good product! Plus, they get those real bacon points.

But hey, don’t take my word for it…I got two boxes I’m gonna give away to TDB’ers on Facespace.  The contest starts tomorrow.  If you win, hit me with a note and let me know if I missed anything.

Thank you Snackle Mouth and good luck.  You do make a good product and at the very least you have a new customer in me.
