We may have slept our way through Philosophy and History class but we’re pretty sure The Baconian Method has something to do with injecting delicious bacon flavor into already tasty foods then eating said food with a nice imperial stout. Obviously. Okay, perhaps this wasn’t Sir Francis Bacon’s revolutionary theory from the 1600’s but to be honest, we like this one better. A good place to start putting this theory into action would be with the drool-inducing snacks from the Sir Francis Bacon Shoppe. Choose either their straight-up bacon peanut brittle or their chocolate covered bacon peanut brittle for something both sweet and salty. Both are made with artisan smoked bacon and peanuts grown in the US and, just like Sir Francis, they’re flat-out brilliant.
