Bacon Thing of The Day: Sizzling Bacon Candy!

Bacon Pop Rocks

We are guessing that the Sizzling Bacon Candy that “explodes in your mouth” is essentially bacon flavored pop rocks. It might taste like ass, but we still want to try it.

Available for just $4 for two (2) packs (what a bargain!) from Urban Outfitters stores and online at This Link!

Thanks to Kat “Hello Kitty” Rim For The Tip!

Favorite Products and Displays from Summer Fancy Food Show 2014: A Photographic Odyssey

Summer Fancy Food Signage

The Summer Fancy Food Show – which is sponsored by the Specialty Food Association – takes over NYC’s Jacob Javits Convention Center for three days each July, and it is the most fun thing imaginable for people who like food. This year’s event took place from Sunday June 29th through Tuesday July 1st, and while you really do need three days to “do” the show, I had to cram my visit into just one day (Sunday). My foodie friend and fellow writer Anne and I blazed a trail across three floors and two entire wings of Javits, coming away with very full tummies, even fuller bags of food swag and samples, and a ton of (mostly) hilarious photos, some of which I will share here. Enjoy!
