Torani, makers of flavored syrups used in coffee shops and bars everywhere, has a new flavor to add to the collection:
An extremely trendy flavor, bacon syrup can be used for many things. Although it may seem gross at first (Bacon coffee, really?), this syrup’s uses don’t need to stop at coffee and alcoholic beverages.
Consider putting a bit in a carbonera or marinara sauce for a low-fat (and vegetarian) option. Try adding just a hint into your dark chocolate brownie batter. Add a little bit to chocolate chip pancakes for a delicious alternative to pigs in a blanket.
And if you really want to try a bacon beverage, give this one a try (courtesy of Torani).
