Funnel Bacon on a Stick at The Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City
I have a new reason for living. You’ve got to have this if you go to Plant City for the Florida Strawberry Festival this year. It took Jan Spencer and I 2 hours to find it. Well worth the the hunt: bacon funnel sticks.
They dip a bacon stick in funnel cake batter and fry it until it’s golden brown. Then shake on some powdered sugar and your choice of drizzle: caramel, chocolate or maple butter. I chose caramel. Jane the manager shut me down. She insisted I choose maple butter. She was right. Oh. My. God.
The mix of salty and sweet is total sensory overload. These things are as good as they sound. But it takes some seeking out. There’s only one stand that has them. Don’t get sidetracked… there are dozens of funnel cake and chocolate dipped bacon vendors. You’ve got to have the real thing.
Directions: from the main concert stage, the truck is near the exit if you walk toward the stage and exit left. Only one location has them. Tell Jane Geno sent you! The Strawberry Festival ends Sunday so if you don’t get there in time, visit http://thebestaroundconcessions.com/ to find out where they’ll be next.
