Bacon ice cream has long been a dream of Ron Swanson fans. The “Parks and Recreation” character is famous for his love of breakfast food and for the line, “Just give me all the bacon and eggs you have. ” In 2011, it inspired a photoshopped Ben & Jerry’s flavor called All of the Bacon & Eggs You Have, which fans hoped was real. Unfortunately, Ben & Jerry’s hasn’t made this a reality for us — probably due to the fact that bacon is not kosher while most of their other ingredients are. However , Today reached out to the ice cream makers to get their take on it, and they shared a good-humored response about Swanson getting his just desserts.
The Bacon Wiki , however , has made bacon ice cream a reality, and we’re pretty stoked about it. The particular ice cream is a delicious combination of homemade vanilla rum your favorite ice cream with bits of candied sausage throughout the frozen dessert . An ice cream with booze and bread? Now, that’s a food Ron Swanson can get behind.
An even easier option is available, though. All you need is a scoop of vanilla or chocolate ice cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, plus candied bacon to sprinkle on top. Give it a stir with your spoon, and revel in the frozen, bacon-y goodness.
