Bacon Hits

Lei Chic
This Sunday, you want to give your old man a nice treat for Father’s Day. He did, after all, bail you out of quite a few of life’s mishaps – changing your flat tires, helping you with multiple moves, even covering your rent in a few really lean months. What a sweet guy.

But he can get pretty salty too – like when you missed your curfew four weekends in a row, or racked up hundreds in parking tickets on his car.

So this time around skip the lame-o tie and the boring pack of tees, and treat pops to something truly suited to his personality — one of these offbeat bacon-flavored sweet treats.

Takes the Cake
You’re already a fan of Satura Cakes’ limited-edition, holiday-themed creations. Remember the chocolate Guinness cupcake with Bailey’s Irish Cream frosting for St. Patty’s Day? For Father’s Day, indulge in a chocolate and bacon cupcake—thick chocolate sponge cake mixed with salty bacon bits topped with fresh cream, maple syrup glaze and, get this, a dark chocolate-covered bacon strip. Available June 17 to 20 at Satura Cakes, 55 Merchant St., 808.537.1206.

strong>That’s A Wrap
Living in Hawaii, your palate is no stranger to soft, tasty mochi. For a new take on the chewy treat, hit up Ka Restaurant & Lounge, where it's served up skewered, wrapped in a crispy bacon strip and topped with a sweet sauce. Ka Restaurant & Lounge, Ward Center, 1200 Ala Moana Blvd, 808.593.7885.

Ace of Cakes
Dad is sure to flip over The Original Pancake House’s bacon flapjacks—fluffy buttermilk pancakes filled with bacon bits, topped with freshly whipped butter and smothered with hot, sweet syrup. Order up a stack at The Original Pancake House, 1221 Kapi‘olani Blvd., 808.596.8213.

Raising the Bar
The perfect balance of salty and sweet, Vosges Mo’s Bacon Candy Bars pair creamy milk or dark chocolate with savory pieces of smoky applewood bacon and a hint of Alder salt. At three ounces a pop, they’re small but rich enough to satisfy even the most powerful craving. Available at Neiman Marcus, Ala Moana Center, 1450 Ala Moana Blvd., 808.951.8887.
