I’m about 50/50 when it comes to trying unique or unusual food items. Things like the Pickle Pops I won’t touch with a 10-foot pole, but I’d gladly try these lollipops that are made from maple syrup embedded with tiny pieces of cured bacon. If these were just made with maple flavoring and bacon bits I suspect they’d taste pretty awful, but since they seem to contain the real thing, they’re probably not that bad. I mean let’s face it, you can add bacon to anything and it’s automatically going to taste better. It’s about time the confectionery industry realized that.
The Maple-Bacon lollipops are available from Lollyphile in a 4-pack for $10, a 12-pack for $24 and a 36-pack for $52 but unfortunately the site is currently sold out and won’t be making new batches for at least a few months.
Update: According to Jason, Lollyphile should have more bacon in just a couple of days.
