Where would we be without the Internet? Before the Internet, I probably never would have heard of Brown Bag Bakery, being that BBB is located in Columbia, Tennessee and I am here, blogging from my computer in Fort Worth, Texas. However, thanks to the Internet and its founder(?), Al Gore, who, coincidentally, HAPPENS TO BE FROM TENNESSEE, I now know about BBB.
I kind of wish I didn't, because now I want to go to there. And sample one of these:
Introducing the Super Bowl Ball (which, by the way, is how I found BBB; I was searching for Super Bowl tie-ins on Etsy, and these suckers popped up). Here's the skinny (ha! irony!) on the SBB: it's chocolate wrapped around a beer-flavored soft caramel made from locally brewed porter. The balls are then rolled in crushed pretzels and powdered sugar.
These toffee bit-coated babies have caramel centers and are made with butterscotch schnapps and Scotch whiskey, hence the name: Butterscotch and Scotch Balls.
These are called Death by Rum Balls. I think that the name is fairly self-explanatory.
I am a big fan of ball-shaped foods. Also foods containing alcohol. Thus, I think that I may be a big fan of BBB. And I won't need to fly to Columbia, TN to test my hypothesis, because they ship.
Check them out on Etsy. (By the way, their product descriptions are funny, too - further convincing me that I love these people.)
