It’s generally understood that crack is whack.
Unless, of course, you’re nibbling on bacon crack, a healthy(ish) combo of bacon, butter toffee, and almonds, all dipped in chocolate, from Nosh This.
High-quality ingredients guarantee you’ll get hooked: crisped-to-perfection thick-cut bacon (smoked over real applewood chips) from Zoe’s Meats; toffee made from Gilt Edge Creamery butter; organic, in-state almonds; and E. Guittard’s Coucher du Soleil chocolate.
And, in case you crave a different sugar fix, owner Kai Kronfield has diversified his stash with salted caramels, which pair nicely with wine (pinot grigio with Meyer lemon, zin with salt and pepper, and a jammy syrah with the tangy balsamic). As for the bacon caramel, well, that calls for a beer, preferably Russian River Brewing Company’s dark ale Consecration.
Chances are you’ll be back for a second hit.
