If the idea of candied bacon appeals to you (as per the "Bacon Brittle" thread in Home Cooking), but you're too ashamed to actually make the stuff, here's a hot tip.
Get thee to Keefer Court for the pork, peanut, and sugar nuggets that they've got on the top of the bakery display case. I don't know what they're called, but they're amazing. They taste like bacon praline candy - salty, sweet, crunchy, and full of smoky, fatty pork flavor. Wow.
Luckily, they're a temporary seasonal item, so I won't have to resist them for much longer.
