***** Bacon Bites *****

Last Saturday night– Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and something like 5,000 of our closest friends attended Baconfest Florida 2013 at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek…food, drink and music galore.

Didn’t really get a count, but there must have been 25-30 vendors “passing out” all types of finger foods (burgers, wings, shrimp, sandwiches, salads, ribs, desserts) that incorporated bacon into their respective recipes.

Midway during the event, awards for the “best this” and the “best that” were announced…

Of note “1st Place Best Dessert” went to a New Jersey based company named Bacon Bites for its Peanut Butter Bacon…think-nice crisp strip of bacon–covered in delicious dark chocolate and topped off with a racing stripe of peanut butter–and you’ll be in the ballpark.

You guys do know that Jeff Eats is a VIP- don’t you? Well anyway, in addition to the “aforesaid” peanut butter bacon, Jeff Eats was also allowed to sample Bacon Bites’ “Oreo” (Oreo Cookie covered in Bacon/Dark Chocolate), “Original” (bacon covered in dark chocolate) and “Carob” (bacon covered in carob)—and I gotta tell you, the stuff that Bacon Bites is making is absolutely delicious.

Bacon Bites is an online company… (201) 724-0303.

The suggestion here, check-out the above website. The Company has some very unique “bacon” dessert products that it ships all over the country. When you are on the site, you will also find a whole list of retail stores that currently carry Bacon Bites’ products. For our purposes, Bacon Bites has yet to crack the Florida retail store market –that said, based on my “sampling” I wouldn’t be surprised to see its stuff on Florida shelves real soon.

Let me wrap this one up…very-unique delicious products!

Next time you’re thinking—fruit basket, flowers, candy basket, cheese tray (assuming the intended recipient isn’t kosher or vegetarian)—Bacon Bites’ stuff will definitely be appreciated.

    It was a terrific night.
    Like you I loved the bacon wrapped in chocolate. I also thought that Smokey Bones bacon cheeseburger on a pretzel bun was delicious.

    Baconfest was fun.
    The Dan Band and The Bacon Brothers put on a terrific show.
    Lots of good food.
    Baconfest was jammed and the casino was also packed.
    The chocolate bacon was delicious.

    Just looked at the website. Interesting novelty items. I definitely could see giving these items as gifts. Big question I have is how does the item get shipped without the chocolate melting etc? Any idea as to how that all works?

    My husband and I went to Baconfest. It was a humid night and there were thousands of people in the outdoor parking lot.
    It was fun but nothing great.
    The bacon Bros Band was good as was The Dan Band, but neither group has hit records so it was a bit on the boring side.
    The food was okay but there were long lines to get food.
    The samples they gave out were small and you only got 20 tkts with your tkt.
    During the Baconfest we went into the casino. It was loaded with people. We caught the BStreet Band at NYY and they were terrific.
    All in all it was a nice night but the huge crowds and humid weather weren’t the best for enjoyment.
    Just wanted to say we really enjoyed the chocolate bacon, and Bru’s wings. We also thought that Smoky Bones cheeeburgers were very good.

    baconfest was a blast.
    good music and good food.
    huge crowds both inside and outside.
    i tried loads of food booths.
    the chocolate bacon was really good. the chocolate was rich and high quality.
    other food that stuck in my mind were the pretzel bun cheeseburger that smokey bones had and the maple cupcake booth. both items were very good.
