Baconsale Episode 29: Trick or Tier

Sweet! It’s a candy-themed episode of Baconsale!

Kent, Joel and our special guest, Dan, rank and review a variety of Halloween treats that could end up in your trick-or-treating bucket — or pillowcase, if that’s the way you (Tootsie) roll. So whether you crave chocolate, you fancy fruit snacks or you long for licorice, this episode is sure to cause some comical confectionery conflict.

This is one Whopper of a show that you can enjoy Now & Later.

      Huh. Freezing a snickers makes it jump a tier? Interesting. Although you lost me when you gave Butterfingers a Tier 3 rating and Sixlets a Tier 1. That just ain’t right.

    This Christopher person is delusional. Butterfinger is obviously a tier 1.

      Right when I start to think we have common tastes, you say things like “Tier 3 if Cherry is in it.” and “I love sweet pickles!” Other than that, these ratings seem somewhat sane.

        There is something about sweet pickles that I really like. Especially chopped up in tuna sandwiches. Cherry starbursts taste like medicine to me.
