Anywho, the fine folks at Archie McPhee have done it again. There is nothing they won’t make taste like bacon!
From their site:
These red and white striped hard candies look just like the ones that grandma used to put in her fancy candy dish for the holidays. But, my oh my, would grandma be in for a surprise if she popped one in her mouth!
Oh my indeed.
$5.95 for a tin with about 12 pieces of candy.

If you are french, a french chef or fan of “Top Chef“ this may rub you the wrong way.
And as for bacon recipes this one may be a stretch…but the recipe does include bacon and crock pot cooking is supposed to be easy…

This banner ad creative for Pringles is brilliant! It recently won a gold Cyber Lion at Cannes and I can see why the judges liked it, what great execution.Â Is it effective in selling potato chips, I don’t know.Â I do know that it is incredibly engaging and had me interacting with their brand for over 3 minutes.Â A lot of marketers would kill for that level of exposure, especially those in packaged goods.
Seriously, start clicking and see if you can’t stop!

After the “all Charlie” post yesterday, I can across a series of Facespace messages from another long time FoTDB Dina (SHOUT OUT!). Dina’s been a BIG supporter of this little blog and just after the New Year she sent not one but five, FIVE, recipes that included candied bacon.
See something you like? Of course you do!
Thanks for all the bacon love Dina and for being a loyal TDBer!

This recipe is what it is…damn tasty….
and simple and easy and quick…
Seriously, if you screw this one up you need to stay the heck away from the kitchen!
Even though it may be elementary in nature, it’s still packs a lot of flavor!

Longtime Brother and FoTDB Charlie (SHOUT OUT) found this in a Younkers in Wisconsin this weekend…
Couple of things here:
1) a bacon t-shirt for kids = SOLID!
b) Scratch and Sniff?! I’m guessing just the sticker as I have no idea how a scented tee would fare after the first wash. Still, nice “value-add”…
Tres) Why is the bacon battling? Are they warring against each other? That’d just be a sad, sad waste of fine pork product. Are they facing off against some other breakfast food? Oatmeal maybe? I’m old and confused.
Aside from all that, it’s just fun.
Don’t have a Younkers near you? Pick one up from their website. It’s on sale right now for just $9.99. For boys (or girls, I won’t discriminate) sizes 8-20.

I LOVE bacon. I also love coffee. So how could this go wrong?
Coffee Glazed Bacon
- 6 to 8 slices of Smoked Bacon
- 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
- 1/4 cup Hot Espresso
- 1/4 tsp Paprika
- 1/4 tsp Black Pepper
You’re gonna have to pop over to Instructables to get those (and see step-by-step photos).

The Wisconsin State Fair also getting in on the chocolate covered bacon fair food craze. Here’s the video to prove it:
TDB’s official list of choco-bacon has included the Florida State Fair, San Diego County Fair and Mississippi Valley Fair (Davenport, IA). I sure there is more out there, but this is what I have been able to confirm through the interwebs!
I wonder if the Michigan State Fair will join the choco-bacon club?? If so, I actually might have to go this year.

Note to all those that think my fascination/consumption/pure love of bacon boarders on fanaticism…
I only scored an 85…so I’m not that “crazy”.
But I did outscore my “Sister in Bacon” over at Skulls and Bacon…so I got that goin’ for me.
I’m also proud of this fact…

It’s starting to get chilly here in Michigan, time to break out the cold weather gear.
Scarfs and gloves go together like bacon and eggs, so it’s only fitting that the world should now have a bacon & eggs scarf and glove combo!
Practical, stylish and oh so yummy looking! You even get your choice of three colors
(Scarf and gloves sold separately for $15 / $8.25 respectfully)
