A few years back , I was watching a food channel, the lady was making candied bacon. I happen to have all the ingredients and I tried making it. It was amazing sweet and salty, crispy and crunchy. I made more and shared with my sister... we absolutely loved it and she suggested putting it on a stick and selling it. So I did.. and people love it.
My husband has been dabbling in home brewing of craft beer. He mentioned going to Brew Fest. We became vendors at The 4B fest in New Haven, CT. We introduced The Pig Candy at this event and hit was a huge hit. We have gone to several Beer Fests such as Ski Sundown Summer Fest, Smoke in the Valley, The American Beer Fest. This October we will be featuring Pig Candy at The Big E on October 3rd.
We are also working on marketing the pig candy into the micro-breweries in Connecticut.
