I wanted to like this as it has super ingredients, but I thought the two b's--bourbon and bacon just did not work for me. The waffle itself is too salty for my taste. Concerning the syrup the bourbon was the first thing I noticed--too strong. I am writing this review as part of the Newest Zaar tag game.
