Bacon Coffee: Seattle's Best Jumps on the Bacon Train

New, 2 comments

Seattle's Best, a subsidiary of Starbucks, is exploring one of the last bacon-free frontiers in food: thanks to a contest winner, a bacon coffee drink is being developed and will potentially appear in Seattle's Best locations across the country.

The coffee chain held a contest at state fairs in California, Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin and Ohio to come up with a new coffee drink, and the winner was one Eileen Gannon with her drink called How to Win a Guy with One Sip. A press release describes the drink as "Level 5 Seattle's Best Coffee® with the unexpected flavors of caramelized bacon and subtle hints of pumpkin pie spice." Yum? Here's a video of Gannon winning her trophy:
