Turns out, the addition of bacon to caramel popcorn is a genius idea! It adds a little smokiness and an extra bit of salt, but because you're only using a few strips of bacon, it's not an overwhelming flavor. In fact, if you chop the bacon into very small pieces, folks might not even notice it's in there--they'll just notice your caramel popcorn is a little more addicting and flavorful than usual. So don't be afraid to add a little pig to your popcorn!
