TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Sir Francis Bacon Peanut Brittle

Sir Francis Bacon, Lord Chancellor of England under Queen Elizabeth I, was an author, lawyer, jurist, philosopher and scientist. But he most likely never had bacon peanut brittle. If he had, it would have become as popular as English toffee.

In his honor, two baconeers from Atlanta are making Sir Francis Bacon Peanut Brittle.

The brittle is produced in small batches in copper kettles. Buttery, salty, smoky and crunchy, this all-natural confection will find fans among everyone who likes bacon.

The sweetness is kept at a sensible level, so there’s no “cloy factor.” The chocolate bacon brittle is a kind of yummy bacon buttercrunch.

The packaging looks like it could come from the 17th century—except for the pig snout mask that Sir Francis sports.

What wine to serve with bacon brittle? Champagne!

Send Sir Francis Bacon Brittle to dads, grads and bacon lovers everywhere.
