Pop goes the Bacon ‘cuz the Bacon goes Pop

Bacon is good. Everyone knows this. Even the people who don’t eat bacon.

The Fabulous GypsyBiscuit knows my love of the meat—er, bacon—and upon seeing the following product at one of the shopping establishments she frequents, she obtained a box for me.

I present to you: J&D’s Bacon Pop! It’s bacon-flavored popcorn. Or at least that’s what they’re selling it as.

As it was popping in the microwave, it oddly sounded like bacon cooking on the stove top. Though I’m not sure if I was just hearing things. I still have two more bags remaining that I can pop to see if I was hallucinating. Or not.

Once popped, it kind of smells like bacon. But it doesn’t look like bacon. But it does look like dirty popcorn. And it’s kind of weird that I ate it considering I have issues with dirty-looking food.

Eating it, I didn’t think it really tasted like bacon. Which is sad. Because I was really craving some bacon. It tasted more like hickory-smoked popcorn to me. But not bacon.

And then there was the aftertaste.

It leaves a really funky aftertaste in your mouth. I don’t even know if I can describe it. The view into the empty bag might give you an indication of what I was thinking that aftertaste tasted like:

My suggestion: if you are craving bacon, just cook up some bacon.

But thank you to The Fabulous GypsyBiscuit for thinking of me!

Until next time...
