Effervescent Bacon Drink Tablets

Effervescent Bacon Drink Tablets -$3.50 Bacon Drink Tablets

Even I think that the bacon madness may have gone a little too far with this but…it is kinda cool in a weird novelty way. I’m pretty sure the people at Archie McPhee are high all the time, you need to be to think up things like this. If you drop one of these magic tablets into a glass of water it will instantly begin to dissolve, creating a cascade of bubbles that will infuse the water with a delicious bacon flavor. They say they work just as well in milk or juice but that’s kinda gross. Each tin contains about fifteen tablets.

Thanksgiving Gumballs – $3.50Thanksgiving Gumballs

There’s no bacon in these Thanksgiving gumballs but I think they’re neat although I don’t expect them to be that tasty. They remind me of the three-course dinner gum from Willy Wonka although I hope these don’t require a trip to the Juicing Room. Each tin contains about twenty-two gumballs in the classic flavors of Thanksgiving – turkey, cranberry and pumpkin pie. While we’re on the subject, scientists are working on gum that would taste like a three-course mean. For realz.

In other exciting bacon news, a few weeks ago, I was checking out an amazing looking recipe for Praline Bacon Ice Cream on the excellent ice cream blog, Scoop Adventures. Ice cream maker extraordinaire, Lindsay, made some for the Bacon Takedown in New Orleans.

She was also giving away 10 pounds of bacon from Hormel and an awesome Bacon Takedown apron. I entered and actually WON! I’ve been handing out free bacon to friends and family and the Bacon Takedown apron looks great hanging in my kitchen. Thanks so much to Lindsay and please check out her blog, it’s got some really interesting ice cream concoctions!

I’ll be on vacation in L.A. starting later this week and my goal is to find the Lardon Bacon Truck. Wish me luck!

Crif’s Dogs, NYC

On a recent trip to NYC, my man and I stopped at Crif’s Dogs. We were actually trying to go somewhere else (extra cool points for you if you can guess where), but that didn’t work out, because it turns out that most things in NYC involve a 2 hour wait and we’re not really into that sort of thing. But I decided to make the most of it, and examined their menu. Obviously I was going to have to try a bacon-wrapped hot dog. I settled on the tsunami, bacon wrapped dog, pineapple, teriyaki, and green onion.

The pineapple was almost certainly from a can, and not a very tasty one at that – it was slightly cold and somewhat flavorless. The teriyaki, when I could taste it, was fantastic and a great compliment to the other flavors involved, but most of the time, I couldn’t taste it. The green onions were nice! And the bacon wrapped dog was AWESOME.
In conclusion: hot dogs are better when they’re wrapped in bacon.

Pork from Poland

Thinking of pork shortages, check out the bounty I received from my mother recently (she flew here from Poland):
A pile of kabanosy, similar to slim jims but much, much tastier (some of these are actually made of goose, not pork, but whatever);
A whole log of my favorite coldcut in the world, kindziuk. Porky, spicy deliciousness. I’ve only ever seen it in Poland, but it’s a Lithuanian food. The internetz inform me that it’s a fermented sausage that is smoked but not cooked. And that it’s legendary for its longevity. I hadn’t realized this, so mine is sliced and wrapped in separate little bundles in the freezer, along with the other pork I brought from the States.
The kabanosy, I’ve eaten already. They exude a powerful porky smell, and I was worried that they’d offend my cleaning lady.
