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…

YUM!

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.

Better with Bacon – Spinach & Bacon Chili…

Man, this looks gooooooood!

Spinach and Bacon Chili

Makes about 6 cups (4 servings)

Ingredients

  • 4 strips uncooked bacon
  • 30 ounces (2 cans) home-cooked or canned, no-salt-added kidney or pinto beans
  • 12 ounces lean ground beef
  • 15 ounces (1 can) no-salt-added crushed or diced tomatoes, such as Muir Glen Fire-Roasted brand
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder, preferably ancho
  • 5 to 8 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 1 cup hot water
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions:

  1. Line a plate with a few layers of paper towels.
  2. Place the bacon in a large, deep saute pan. Cook over medium heat until browned and crisp, then transfer to the paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
  3. Meanwhile, if you’re using canned beans, rinse and drain them.
  4. Add the ground beef to the pan; cook for a few minutes just until no trace of pink remains. Transfer to a colander to drain. Wipe out the pan and return it to medium heat. Return the ground beef to the pan.
  5. Crumble the bacon into the pan, then add the tomatoes and their juices, the drained beans, onion powder, garlic powder and chili powder, stirring to incorporate. Increase the heat to medium-high; once the mixture comes to a boil, add the spinach (to taste) and the hot water. Stir until the spinach begins to wilt.
  6. Return the chili to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium-low. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring once or twice.
