The Sticky Pig in Orange is a small store that sells candies and other goodies based on—you guessed it—bacon. With a nickname like the Bacon Vixen, you know whatever Tara Simon brings to the table is fabulously gluttonous. She's the driving force behind her confection brand, The Sticky Pig. It's all handmade, utilizing an entire strip of candied bacon to wrap in a bite-sized rush of umami. Consider The Elvis: peanut butter, fresh banana, a hint of lemon and honey; then topped with savory peanut butter icing and organic banana chip crunches. One might think the confections would possess an overpowering piggy flavor, but that's not the case. She's found balance, walking the line between being cloyingly sugary and intensely meaty. While Elvis is one of her top sellers, Coffee 'n Cream and (her favorite) Raspberry Jelly Doughnut also share the spotlight. Also catch her confections at your better indie shops.
You're supposed to bring a dessert to a potluck football-watching party, and you're stumped. What would be awesome enough to go with burgers, carne asada, beer and chips? How about bacon? Tara Simon, the Bacon Vixen, makes whiskey-bacon ice cream, French-toast-bacon cookies, bacon caramel corn and more out of a shared storefront in Orange, just in time for football season. More »
