Also, concerning all the Bacon… Indiana is the 5th largest pork producer in the USA. And that’s no bull! Here in Tipton County, we celebrate the Pork Festival each year, and I know Delphi has a Bacon Festival (http://www.indianabaconfestival.com/). I’ve haven’t made it to the Bacon Fest, yet, but (https://www.facebook.com/IndianaBaconFest/photos/a.557462287708996.1073741828.554323861356172/1365328246922392/?type=3) shows menu items such as:
Maple Ice Cream with Bacon Crumb topping
Bacon Pork Burgers
Bacon Cinnamon Rolls
Sizzling Bacon Tacos
Catfish Bacon Slider
Maple Bacon Bourbon Bread Pudding
Philly Cheese Bacon Sandwich
Bacon Coney Slaw Dog
Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Peppers
Maple Bacon Long John
Bacon Fried Ice Cream
Also, https://www.in.gov/dwd/files/Indiana_Crop_Production_pg2.pdf shows that Indiana is the 4th largest producer of Peppermint, and 5th largest of Spearmint!
Just as a note, it also shows Indiana as the 2nd largest producer of tomatoes for processing (Red Gold being the largest), and 2nd for Ice Cream Production! mmmmhhhh
Look forward to seeing Holiday World again next year!
