Need a better excuse to be obsessed with bacon? Science is on your side! Did you know that bacon contains six types of umami, a pleasant savory taste imparted by glutamate, a type of amino acid, which actually produces an addictive neurochemical response – so it’s not your fault! Now, the ONLY logical next step, is to arm yourself with the Bacon Survival Kit from Chunky Pig, our newest Undiscovered Kitchen maker!
THE BACON SURVIVAL KIT CONTAINS:
- Chunky Pig Candied Bacon Caramel Corn
- Chunky Pig Candied Bacon Caramel Corn with Peanuts
- Chunky Pig Gold-Wrapped Candied Bacon Chocolate Tile
- Chunky Pig Handled Mason Pint (to wash it all down with a frosty pint of beer!)
WHY CHUNKY PIG ROCKS!
After 10 years as a pastry chef Gina Conedera, founder of Chunky Pig, wanted to bring her unique (and unexpected) pastry style to the masses! Chunky Pig does JUST that and marries Gina’s three favorite things: sweet, salty & pork with top shelf ingredients, no preservatives and baked in small batches to ensure freshness!
Chunky Pig uses twice candied and naturally smoky Niman Ranch, nitrate-free bacon which is raised traditionally, humanely, and sustainably to produce the finest tasting meat in the world. In fact, Niman Ranch livestock protocols were developed with the help of an animal welfare expert and remain the strictest in the industry! Next, Chunky Pig incorporates rare mushroom popcorn, Cordillera Single-Origin Columbian Dark Chocolate and pure Vermont maple syrup from Bascom Farms.
