BaconPop followup

Friday, January 15, 2010 Review by Andrew

Small side note – my microwave still smells like baconpop every time I open it. This isn’t as fantastic as i first thought, there are some food substances which you might not want to associate with bacon smell.

I’m concerned that I may have to actually CLEAN the microwave soon, the girlfriend is looking displeased.

BaconPop – Could it actually be edible?

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 Review by Andrew

Since my office is right next to BaconSalt headquarters, I figured I should know a bit more about them and their products. Specifically, they recently released bacon flavored popcorn. I pondered this for a bit and wasn’t sure if it would be edible or simply a novelty.

After overcoming my common sense, I went ahead and got some BaconPop. Tried it out last night and here’s the results:

It popped completely in about 2 minutes 45 seconds in my microwave. No dead kernels at all, impressive!

My first bite was so so, pretty much just tasted like standard popcorn with a little smoke. As I got deeper into the bag, the bacon flavor exploded into it’s full glory. Just like other flavored microwave popcorn, you have to shake the flavor off one side of the bag.

The taste is actually quite good, nice popcorn flavor and the bacon taste does add nicely to it!

Delightful snack, but there are two down sides to this bag of decadence – 1. I’d hate to read the nutrition label 2. My microwave still reeks of “bacon” over 12 hours later.

In conclusion – a tentative rating of tasty.

BAD Bacon: Patrick Cudahy – Sweet Apple-Wood

Wednesday, January 13, 2010 Review by Brian

Is there such a thing as bad bacon? Apparently there is. I don’t normally blog about ‘bad bacon’, but I had to make an exception… I picked up a 1lb box/thing of Patrick Cudahy – Sweet Apple-Wood bacon. After cooking, I found that it was lacking flavor and the texture was confusing. The bacon did not cook evenly – which I hate. The crispyness first, then chewy fatty parts.. gross.

I’d avoid this bacon. ~ Brian

Have Your Scotch on the Rocks – Really!

Hi everyone,

You want to enjoy your whisky chilled, but not diluted by the ice melting, so I think this might be the solution for you!

Whisky Stones – they are made of soapstone, which has excellent thermal properties. They won’t scratch the glass and will not alter the flavor of your favorite scotch.

Whisky on the Rocks with Soapstones

Easy to use and reusable.  This is the perfect gift for youself or your favorite Scotch drinker. Maybe you can pick up a set of special glasses to go with the “rocks”. Valentine’s Day is just a little more than a month away.

Take care,
