“Nothing beats the taste sensation when maple syrup loud handclap collides with ham!”
—-Special Agent Dale Cooper

Ham, this isn’t. But smoked ham and smoked bacon are close enough (well, before they’re cooked, and leaving arguments over back bacon and streaky bacon aside), I say it counts! ;)

Moving onward: In the tin, it smells very, very smoky. With a hint of salt. Kind of like the rub you put on bacon as you’re preparing to cure it (minus the cold, greasy hands).

As it brews, there’s a hit of maple in the scent. The taste is much more of a smoked bacon affair, but the maple lingers in the scent. If you want to amp the maple, try pouring a little maple syrup in.

If you’re an anti-carb person but miss BLTs, wrap some lettuce around some juicy, ripe tomato slices and munch it with a mug of this. No bacony mouthfeel, but still very tasty! (I won’t be held responsible if you decide to use mayonnaise as an additive, though. ;) )

It’s surprisingly good. I felt compelled to try it, just by virtue of its existence. I’d probably not want to drink it at night…but then, I don’t usually go in for heavy black teas at night anyway. :)

Have this, but haven’t tried it yet. I think the Smoky Bacon is more "jerky"ish.

So, was the Twin Peaks reference due to its 20th anniversary being two days ago, or was it an awesome coincidence? Either way it was brilliant!

@Rabs YES. THANK YOU. :D AND THANK YOU SOME MORE. :D :D

I’m actually kind of surprised. It seems like we have a fair amount of nerd-fen around here and you were the first one to get it! :)

(I have the special edition DVD box that came with the postcards. I also have the Cooper/Diane audiocassette. I am truly sad. XD)

I love your Twin Peaks reference. They really knew their “taste sensations” there.
