an individually wrapped square of fudgy goodness studded with three strips of chopped applewood-smoked bacon and sprinkled with sea salt. It sells for $2.49.
The Bacon Brownie was added to the Qik-n-EZ inventory last week. Evers is working on getting it in other stores and hopes to take his company, Bacon People (baconpeople.com...), nationwide.
Each hefty brownie square has 420 calories, 20 grams of fat and 16 grams of protein.
After many tries, he came up with a winning recipe and made it often for friends. He knew he had something special when the hostess of a holiday potluck that he attended each year called him to complain. He couldn’t make it that year and the hostess said the other guests didn’t want to come if Evers’ bacon brownies weren’t on the table.
They eventually did find the right baker — Pellegrino Food Products Co. in Warren, Pa. Pellegrino’s massive oven is 181 feet long. During a 17-hour shift, the company can churn out 320,000 Bacon Brownies.
Evers, who has a degree in business management from the University of Illinois Springfield, was looking for volume. If the brownie sells well, he’s planning to release a blondie. And then a gourmet brownie. In all, his business plan calls for the release of 31 products. He’s hoping to get into retail giants like Sam’s Club and Costco.
Each Bacon Brownie package has a picture of an upright pig wearing a banner and holding a stein of beer. The image comes from a 1911 German postcard; it represents Evers’ German heritage and his family’s long tenure as pig farmers. Roark is the pig’s name.
“He’s our Cap’n Crunch,” said Evers about the porky corporate mascot.
Evers describes it as, “moist, not too sweet and not too salty. The bacon flavor is mild and not overpowering.” There is a delicate balance of sweetness and saltiness, and there’s plenty of bacon in it. It weighs in at a hearty 3.5 ounces.
Said Evers: “It’s a meal.”

Yet, not everyone likes the idea. See ArtofTrance's post. She may win out someday, and bring the US to a primarily vegetarian country. Her objection is noted, but with enough people demanding bacon, it looks like it will be around for a while.
Just a side thought, what happens if Michelle Obama becomes President? I fear your rasher would disappear.
