It is well documented on my blog and in my classroom how much I love bacon. I have had students bring me bacon mints (which were gross and tasted like band-aids), chocolate covered bacon (delicious!) and a maple bacon cupcake (also delicious).
At the beginning of second hour yesterday, one of my students came up to me and said, "Mrs. Shaum, I brought you a piece of maple bacon saltwater taffy." I looked dubiously at the pink and brown piece of candy in its translucent wrapping. My students, in turn, looked at me expectantly. So I opened the wrapper, popped it in my mouth and ate it right in front of them. As I chewed, and chewed.... and chewed, thinking while I was chewing, the room was completely silent as they patiently waited for my assessment. I noted the maple taste right away but couldn't really note much bacon flavor. Instead, it tasted more like salty maple saltwater taffy, which was pretty darn good. As I declared to the class that I liked it, they all erupted in cheers.
Now I think I need to go online and find some maple bacon saltwater taffy so they can experience the joy too. :)
