Just in time for the opening of the 2013 NASCAR Season: Bacon Cotton Candy!

What do NASCAR and the Confectionary Arts have in common?
If you immediately conjure a mental image of Hot Dogs, pop corn, and maybe funnel cakes, you’re right on track.

But add some bacon and some spun sugar and you have the recipe for the latest food craze to come down the pike–or in this case, to make a full lap: Bacon Cotton Candy.

It’s called Hawg Heaven Bacon Cotton Candy, and you can get it at Fort Worth’s Texas Motor Speedway when the NASCAR Season opens, April 11th.

Speedway Executive Chef, Jose Pena, starts with the basics: Cooked, chopped bacon, mixed with sugar, allowed to simmer and soak. The bacon is removed from the syrup–now bacon-flavored.

After being spun into cotton candy, the candied bacon bits are generously strewn on top.
Voila! Bacon Cotton Candy.

Pena says the idea came from another Texas Motor Speedway favorite, the “No Limits, Wild Asphalt Circus,” another story for another time.
