Pig candy is a type of dessert. It is made with thick strips of smoked bacon and pecans. It is then coated with brown sugar. Another name for this dish is “glazed bacon”.
This dish is especially popular in the southeastern United States. It has really taken on a life of its own in Washington D.C. (of all places) and Martha Stewart even featured it on “Martha Stewart’s Living”.
There are about 100 different recipes online so when and where you get it makes all the difference in the world.
Some folks eat it as desert but it an excellent snack. Protein and carbs can make for a great tide-me-over until din din.
So come on over to Charlie and Jake’s beachside Melbourne FL and try the pig candy. We bet you will go hog wild for it!
