I love random food holidays. A cause for celebration on an otherwise average day, they remind us to enjoy the little things in life, for they can bring us great joy.
August 10th is National S’Mores Day
Of course, I’d happily celebrate s’mores any day of the year, with that marriage of gooey, charred marshmallows and barely-melted chocolate squeezed between two graham cracker squares. So many wonderful textures, so many glorious flavors, all in one messy little package. The best things in life generally are a little messy, after all.
Jones Dairy Farm recently asked me to take this already fabulous flavor combination and make it even better…by incorporating bacon. How could I resist? You know I have a love affair with all things pork–and especially bacon. And that I already enjoy introducing my porky friend to my favorite desserts. This was the perfect task for me!
After mulling over–and attempting–several ideas, the one that wouldn’t leave me alone was Bacon S’Mores Popcorn. A snack you can take anywhere–no campfire required–that’s smoky and sweet with the perfect crunch. Summer in a bowl, available to you any time of year. It was love at first taste!
You can find this masterful morsel over on Jones Dairy Farm’s website. Enjoy!
