If you’ve listened to my show anytime during Florida Strawberry Festival week, you’ve no doubt heard me obsess over what is probably my favorite food ever. Funnel bacon on a stick (or “Funnel Fried Bacon” if you’ve seen it on The Cooking Channel TV show “Carnival Eats”) is the creation of “Mama Jane” Harris from The Best Around Inc.
She’s the Goddess of Funnel Cakes. Her creations like funnel cake pizza from the Florida State Fair have been seen on TV nationwide.
Mama Jane is tasked with creating something new for Plant City every year. Funnel bacon on a stick was never intended to come back for a second year but I raised such a fuss about it on the air that I’ve forced them to bring it back to the Strawberry Festival now for what will be an an unprecedented 4th year in 2018.
