Best Bacon Gifts

For Those Who Always Have A Craving For Bacon



If you love bacon and love eating the best foods in general, then spend a little more for truly great bacon. With a specialty food brand, you get more meat, better meat, less fat and less salt, providing a truly superior bacon experience. Or, branch out and try some bacon-flavored lollipops, chocolate, cupcakes and peanut brittle because why not? Not seeing what you’re looking for on this list? Then check out our Gift Finder for hundreds of other gift ideas for every occasion.

Prices and product availability are verified at publication but are subject to change. Shipping may be additional. THE NIBBLE does not sell products; these items are offered by a third party with which we have no relationship. They have been recommended because we think they are outstanding products.

Bacon Gifts  


Das Foods:
Maple Bacon Lollipop

Yes, there are real, smoky bacon bits in this lollipop, which is called “Man Bait” instead of the more prosaic Maple Syrup & Bacon. Why? Because bacon attracts men, says creator Katie Das. The flavor is truly a smoky bacon lollipop, sweetened with maple syrup. Read our review of all of Das’s “adult lollipops.”

J & D’s:

J & D, better known as Justin and Dave, believe that everything should taste like bacon. They have created bacon-flavored popcorn, salad dressing and salt, as well as bacon-flavored lip balm and envelopes, known as Mmmvelopes. Our favorite of the product line is Baconnaise, which we named a Top Pick Of The Week (read the review). This bacon-flavored mayonnaise that’s kosher and vegetarian uses bacon flavoring instead of real meat. Available in both Regular and Lite (but stick to the Regular), Baconnaise is great on egg sandwiches and creates an instant BLT—no bacon needed. You can dip fries into it and purpose it as you would any mayonnaise.

Artisan Bacon:
Sliced Or Slab

Sure, there are plenty of bacon products out there, but sometimes you don’t want brittle or chocolate or maple syrup masking the crunchy strips of bacon that you fry on the stove or cook in the microwave. Our favorite bacon comes from Edwards, D’Artagnan (which also has boar and duck bacon), Niman Ranch and Nueske’s, all available online and at specialty food stores nationwide. Read more about bacon in our Gourmet Meats Section.

Sir Francis Bacon:

Peanut Brittle

We like this particular bacon brittle so much, we named it a Top Pick Of The Week (read the review). The original and chocolate versions are very different, so by all means, try both!

Milk & Dark Bacon Bar Library

The Bacon Library will give you an opportunity to try two types of bacon chocolate bars. Mo’s Bacon Bar in deep milk chocolate (41% cacao) is paired with its new brother, Mo’s Dark Chocolate Bacon Bar (62% cacao). Each bar envelops applewood smoked bacon and alderwood smoked salt. We think it’s the best bacon bar out there.

Yummy Cupcakes:

Pancakes N’ Bacon Cupcake In A

This vanilla/maple cupcake frosted with a maple buttercream and topped with real crispy bacon crumbles ships in a Mason jar directly to your home. That’s right—you can eat this cupcake right out of the jar with a spoon! But because it’s not offered every day, if you want it on an “off” day, there’s a minimum order of two dozen. But trust us, it’ll be worth it. Read our review of Yummy Cupcakes, a NIBBLE Top Pick Of The Week.
