Throughout my two years of working as an intern at the Nebraska Pork Producers Association, I have encountered many new, exciting edible and non-edible bacon based products. I have eaten maple bacon ice cream created by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Dairy Store. I have eaten bacon with eggs and eaten it around pork chops. I have even put Bacon Chapstick on my lips at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa. I have seen Bacon Flavored Vodka and personally enjoyed eating Chocolate Covered Bacon Candy Bars.
However, I doubt I have seen all that bacon can do. There are so many more possibilities that bacon can do – its potential is endless!
Here are a few items that I have heard of or seen in the news that I think are the most “creative” in bacon based products, in no particular order.
- Rainbow Colored Bacon
- Bacon Cups
- Boca Java Gourmet Coffee – Maple Bacon Morning
- Bacon Soap
- Bacon Flash Drive
- Bacon Gumballs
- Bacon Explosion
- Bacon-Almond Cheese Spread
- Bacon and Peanut Butter Cookies
