Praline Bacon Gourmet Popcorn has been a long time in the making but wouldn't have been one of my first gourmet popcorns to list or even make.
When I first moved to New Orleans from North Carolina, I went to Rouses (one of the regional Louisiana grocery chains) and found something very interesting in their bakery display. It was a pecan doughnut with maple frosting and two slices of crispy bacon on top. It looked like a "long john". At the time, I remember thinking "what a big, decadent little doughnut." It wasn't super appealing to me either, and I didn't try it. It seemed to rich and seemingly like a heart attack waiting to happen.
Two years later though, I put together a popcorn stand and online store with Pecan Praline Gourmet Popcorn and Bourbon Bacon Gourmet Popcorn as a couple of my very first popcorns.
I had always wanted to mix these two caramel corns together, and so I have. Ironically, coming back to the doughnut story with the bacon, maple and pecan doughnut I thought I never wanted to try, I realized I had already made something super similar to it. Maybe even a little more dangerous with brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup. But, in the end the Flavors weren't too rich or decadent but somehow blended together super evenly to make a gourmet popcorn that was amazing. I'm pretty sure y'all won't just like it but luv it!
I have to say there's also a restaurant in the Bywater neighborhood of New Orleans called Elizabeth's (http://www.elizabethsrestaurantnola.com) that really got me thinking about finally putting together this listing after brunch one Sunday morning recently where Praline Bacon was a appetizer option.
Praline Bacon Gourmet Popcorn is made with real crispy bacon, crushed pecans and is mixed evenly in a maple caramel. It's a very crunchy popcorn and is loaded with a great flavor that's not too much for ya and ya mouf.
This listing is for (1) five ounce bag of this decadent Praline Bacon Gourmet Popcorn. It's made in small, artisanal batches in my N'awlins kitchen just right. It makes a great gift for men, women or whoever the pecan, bacon lover is in your neck of the woods, y'all.
