Abby Denson's City Sweet Tooth Blogiversary and include Maple Bacon Lollipops from Roni-Sue…
Rhonda Kave is known for her excellent lollipops. And for her adventures in bacon. It was only a matter of time before the magical beast found its way into lollipop form.
There’s something rather striking about these pops. They kind of remind me of amber, but instead of prehistoric flora and fauna trapped in tree sap, you have tasty bacon morsels suspended in maple syrupy goodness. The lollipops are actually a take on Rhonda's famous tea and honey pops and are made from a smoked tea and pure maple syrup rather than tea and honey. The bacon flavor was strong but not overpowering. I wouldn’t have minded the pops themselves to be a little more mapley, but as a fourteenth generation New Englander, so I tend to have a freakishly high maple threshold. If you like a little sweet with your savory, these bacon lollipops make for a nice late night snack.
