A Lidda Bit Sweet

Bourbon. Coffee. Caramel. Bacon. Popcorn. What's not to like? This kitchen sink confection by Liddabit Sweets out of my native Brooklyn, New York, is deliciously addictive. I didn't detect any coffee when I tried it, but the popcorn is a wonderful canvas for the love affair between the smoky bourbon and bacon flavors and the seductively sweet caramel. This treat, as well as other sumptuous offerings, are available at the Brooklyn Flea, a handful of local shops and restaurants, and directly from the source through their new online store. These products are handmade and use as many organic and local ingredients as possible, so feel less bad about eating gobs and gobs of candy.


  1. Liddabit candies are good, but if we're talking Brooklyn sweets, they pale in comparison to the awesomeness of Mast Brothers chocolates.

    Eat it.

  2. Using the term "love affair' when describing food has to be one of the most obnoxious terms in food writing since calling something a "sumptuous offering."

    Are you still working on that? Can I take that away from you?

  3. Love the new category links!

  4. I think it's perfectly fine to be enthusiastic about food, especially when talking about sweets. And after meeting Liz and Jen, the two fun and quirky ladies behind Liddabit, I'm guessing they would share my opinion.
