1. Flander's Donut, Bagel & Bake Shop - 327 Flanders Rd., East Lyme
Start this road trip off right with a maple bacon donut from Flanders Donut, Bagel & Bake Shop. Bite into a perfect dough donut with a slightly sweet maple glaze. The generous amount of bacon applied to top it off is a sure-fire home run with bacon lovers.
2. The Chocolate Shell - 16B Lyme Street, Old Lyme
This super sweet candy shop is the next stop on this bacon trail. Sink your teeth into a baconluxious candy bar for the heavenly combination of bacon, sea salt, maple, and chocolate. This undeniably delicious treat pays homage to your sweet cravings while satisfying your bacon-loving spirit.
3. BAR - 254 Crown Street, New Haven
Next stop is BAR in New Haven where you'll indulge in a bacon-covered pizza. The mashed potato pie is a much-loved favorite amongst the locals. While it sounds a bit odd, once you try the thin crust white pie with garlic, mashed potatoes, and a healthy helping of bacon, you'll be a life-long fan.
4. Max Burger - 124 LaSalle Road, West Hartford
You've made a stop for the bacon chocolate bar and now it's time for bacon lollipops. At Max Burger, these bites on the end of a stick are the thing you never knew you were craving. Crispy with an apple cider glaze, "lollipops" have never been so good.
5. Cure - 55 Mill Street, Unionville
Dive into many menu items that are enhanced with bacon at Cure. But if you consider yourself a true aficionado, you'll want to order the bacon flight. Just like a flight of beer at a brewery, this bacon sampling will let you experience the subtleties in flavor from one mouthwatering strip to the next.
6. Nodine's Smokehouse - 192 Albany Turnpike, Canton
We can't let you finish this bacon trail empty-handed, so the last stop is Nodine's Smokehouse. You can munch on a BLT or a bacon & onion pie while you're there but before you leave, stock up for later. Nodine's Smokehouse uses old world methods and proven recipes throughout their smoking process. Browse the selection of scrumptious smoked meats and pick up some bacon to go.
