Jake tried Uncommon Brewers' Bacon Brown Ale. Incorporating traditional Belgian brewing techniques with the principles of sustainability, Uncommon Brewers aims, as they say, to make uncommon beers for uncommon people. Mission accomplished, guys! This bacon beer was subtle and intriguing.
And for the entire family's bacon fix: chocolate-covered bacon from Marini's Candies! They start with hickory-smoked bacon, cook it in the oven until it's golden and crispy, then they smother it in chocolate. We couldn't decide on which one to try, so we bought all four varieties. The favorites for the smalls: bacon + chocolate + maple. Jake and I liked the bacon + chocolate + a whisper of ghost chile. Truly unparalleled.
And though I didn't try it, Marini's also had brownies draped in a chocolate ganache topped with crumbled bacon. O. M. G.
