( 4UMF NEWS ) Bacon-Flavored Coffee Coming Soon:
Des Moines, Iowa resident Eileen Gannon beat out five other competitors with her pumpkin pie-spiced, bacon-flavored coffee at a contest held in New York last week, where her creation was lauded as the most “imaginative drink in America.”
Gannon, a financial adviser in Des Moines, meanwhile, is no stranger to the food contest circuit, according to local paper the Des Moines Register, which pointed out that she’s a frequent blue ribbon winner at state fair contests.
Runners-up for the $10,000 pot included a “Café Mocha en fuego,” spiced with chili powder, cinnamon and cayenne, and a raspberry-flavored chocolate coffee.
Gannon, meanwhile, used a bacon-flavored syrup and garnishes of candied oven-baked bacon to garnish her drink.
