Sweet and Spicy Bacon Wrapped Dates for Superbowl #SundaySupper

The first time I had these I was so enthralled with their taste. Well bacon wrapped anything is great as you all know but these are sweet and spicy too! I had them at a neighbors home, Shelley for Bunco and they have been a hit ever since. This is an addictive game day snack. One that will be gone in no time!!

I am excited about the game today. I love the 49ers and sure hope they win. It has been some time since they have been in the Super Bowl. I loved the days of Joe Montana and Dwight Clark. Great football back then. I haven’t followed NFL like I used to but I will still be glued to the TV today. Go 49ers!!!

    Excellent little snack and so unusual too. I have never tasted or seen these before (and that means something!). Would love a bite now. =)
