Thanks Tara for sharing!
What is your favorite candied bacon flavor and the most popular flavor?
My personal favorite is the Apple Pecan Dulce de Leche because it tastes like a cross between an apple pie and a churro. Yum! It’s hard to say which is the most popular because they all so good, but the top three are S’mores, Apple Pecan and The Elvis.
What gave you the idea to create The Sticky Pig?
I’ve been making candied bacon for years, but it wasn’t until I met an amazing group of foodie friends that inspired me to create new flavors and sell to the masses.
How do we find the sticky pig candied bacon confections?
As of right now you can buy them online at www.TheStickyPig.com.
What FireFly package would you pick for your bachelorette party?
That’s a hard one, because they all look fun, but I think I would choose the Psychic Party.
Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelorette party? Why?
1. Eddie Izzard, but only if he dressed in drag. 2. Kathy Griffin. 3. Jane Lynch
Why? One word: Hilarious!
Which wedding are you: Beach, Mountain, Forest, or Countryside?
What’s your most outrageous wedding memory?
I have never been married, but most memorable would have to be the hilarious drunken toasts.
Peace, love and bacon!
