I like bacon. I’m not a bacon fanatic (not enough to get a bacon coffin or utilize some bacon “lotion”). I think the majority of things that people are concocting with bacon are monstrosities. This is not so with Queen City Bacon Schnecken. Peggy (you can read more about Peggy at the bottom of this post) of Queen City Cookies sent our office samples of their bacon and classic Schnecken. Needless to say, we liked them (a lot).
The company is doing things right. The Schnecken came packaged in biodegradable peanuts (classy touch). They are made of cornstarch and dissolve in water and soil. It also came in a beautiful package with product information and a hand written personal note. You may ask why this is important. I say, it’s all in the details.
The box containing the Schecken was heavy (like a log). I knew the Schnecken would be a highly caloric treat. We opened it saw that there were three Schneckens per box. I took one out and put it in the microwave. When it came out it was gooey (but not too gooey) and beautifully buttery. There were pieces of bacon that were elegantly covered in sugar. Having these in the office would be a danger to my waistline and self constraint. I begged everyone else to keep me away.
I guess you know that I really liked the bacon schnecken. After delighting and scheduling a session with my personal trainer, I sat to read more about the product. Here’s the skinny:
High quality ingredients
Premium Pulgra butter
Pure cane sugar
Snowville Creamery Half and Half
I still have not tasted the regular Schnecken. I have a feeling I’m going to like them just as much. I suggest you order some NOW!
Peggy Shannon is lifetime baker, art connoisseur, and committed philanthropist. she left corporate America to create pastry art (and assist in making my waistline larger). In all seriousness, her creations are gorgeous (and delicious). She makes her cookies from scratch and in vintage cookie molds. One can tell that she leaves no detail to chance. It gets better; Queen City Cookies does good. They support Women Helping Women, the MS Acelerated Cure Project, the Cincinnati Northside Urban Redevelopment Corporation CNURC), the Northside Farmer’s Market, Happen Inc., 7 Days for SIDS, the Wise Temple Sisterhood, the Clifton Cultural Arts Center, the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Cincinnati, the Fairview German Language School, the American Heart Association, the Cincinnati Civic Garden Center, the Cincinnati Opera, AND 100% of the profits from their dog- and cat-shaped Buttery Shortbread Bites are donated to the Animal Adoption Foundation, a no-kill shelter in Ohio.
There’s a lot more I like about this company and their products. Check out their website and order some. It’s good stuff.
