Things I'm Digging: Brown Bag Bakery

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.)
