All the bacon goodness that we had on WQIK 99.1 The Big Show!
Leave a comment below on what you like your bacon on the most and you can win a $25 gift card to Cinotti’s Bakery and try some of these awesome Bacon Donuts out…or something else if you want! I will pick one person at random from the comments on Wednesday night. Pretty good odds!
Who doesn’t like bacon right? Oh, you in the back with your hand raised…yes…you sir…what is wrong with you? I’m just kidding lol. Seriously though, I don’t think I have ever met anyone that didn’t like bacon. If you are one of “those” people, leave me a comment, I’m interested in knowing if there are people out there that don’t.
So, today the main focus was bacon. Me being the average guy, that means I love a good pound or two of bacon every once in a while haha. I told Toni that one of my favorite “you have to try this” things right now is the Bacon Donut from Cinotti’s Bakery (Cinotti’s Bakery Restaurant Review) Now, I know that sweet stuff and bacon isn’t for everyone, but if you are true bacon fan, you have to stop by and try this thing out. But if Bacon Donuts aren’t your thing, Cinotti’s Bakery has a ton of other delicious stuff. Oh, they have best King Cakes (It’s a Louisiana thing) in town too. The best thing, they are local, they are good, and the owners are really cool and want the customer to have a good dining experience. Here are some pics of these delicious Bacon Donuts:
Next up, the Bacon Sundae from Burger King
As you know, I don’t usually review chain restaurants. Chances are that if I have done a review of a chain restaurant, it is because it was a train wreck. Occasionally, a chain will throw everyone a curve ball and offer something that I just have to try…you know…just so I can report back if it is bad or not…right?!?! A couple months ago Taco Bell came out with the Dorito Taco, yep…I tried it (Taco Bell Dorito Locos Review). So, when I saw the commercials for the Bacon Sundae, I knew I was going to have try it.
First off, let me say that the sundae was bigger in portion size than I expected. It was $2.99 and for some reason I was thinking it would come in that tiny little thing that McDonald’s serves their sundaes in. Nope, this was pretty big actually. Probably about twice as big as the McDonald’s serving size. So, all things considered, good portion size for the price…it made me feel better about the $3 bucks I spent on it. It’s a regular sundae, soft serve vanilla ice cream, hot chocolate and hot caramel. The only difference, they put about 6 separate 1″ pieces of bacon on it. Probably what equals to one strip of bacon. And like I said, they are about an inch each so if you end up not liking the combination, it’s easy to either take them out or you can eat around them. Now, on to the taste verdict…I liked it! It was the perfect combination of sweet and savory. I think it was worth the $3 bucks, so if you are the kind of person who likes to drag their bacon through their pancake syrup, this is probably right up your alley. But if you are stuck on what people might think or whatever, just skip it, the world won’t end right? Oh, yeah, it might….just try the damn thing will ya?!?!? If you have tried it, leave a comment and let me know what you thought. Feed back is always appreciated Below are the pics of the Bacon Sundae from Burger King.
