The foodie mania over bacon is nothing new. We’ve seen bacon popcorn, bacon chocolate, bacon doughnuts, even bacon-topped cupcakes. But Tara Simon (aka The Bacon Vixen) has taken the craze to a whole new level of sinful indulgence over at her Los Angeles-based outfit, The Sticky Pig. Her product? Candied bacon: truffle-sized mouthfuls of sweet and salty deliciousness that come in flavors like orange ginger, maple cinnamon, coconut curry lime, and apple pecan dulce de leche. Drooling yet?

Check out The Sticky Pig’s online store, where you can order the little goodies by the box. If you’re really feeling piggy, you can even sign yourself up for the ‘12 months of candied bacon’ package. That’s enough to set anybody’s curly little tail a-wiggling.
