Bacon Topped Maple Bar

On the way home from a miserable trip to the Oregon Coast, where I found cold weather and miserable surf, I had a pleasant surprise. Usually on a trip like this it would be a speedy trip home but since my wife and buddy's girlfriend were along we decided to make a stop. For some reason they wanted some warm liquids after shivering for hours on the beach.

We stopped at Sleepy Monk Coffee Roasters in Cannon Beach. I opted to stay in the car with my can of Diet Coke while the three went in. My wife came back with a pleasant surprise. A delicious maple bar with two meaty strips of bacon on top. Now I had heard of such a thing from the famous Voodoo Doughnut's in Portland but had not had a chance to partake due to my lack of trips into the big city since moving to suburbia.

I do have to say it was quite delicious. The bacon gives not only the obvious boost in flavor but adds some great texture as well. Hopefully sarcastically, my wife chimed in as I was enjoying it that it should be pretty easy to make. I think so since I do know several sources for maple bars and am able to cook a mean strip of bacon.

Bakon Vodka

Yes you read that correctly. Apparently the new hot vodka on the town is Bacon flavored Vodka coming out of the cellar. There seems to be a lot of bacon flavored products coming out these days and why stop short of Vodka. Flavored Vodkas are also every where so I guess it was only a matter of time. According to :

"Bakon Vodka is a superior quality potato vodka with a savory bacon flavor. It’s clean, crisp, and delicious. This is the only vodka you’ll ever want to use to make a Bloody Mary, and it's a complementary element of both sweet and savory drinks."

I don't know about you but I can't wait to find a bottle for those special occasions that call for something out of the ordinary. You know like breakfast...
