BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KERO) — "Mmmm, bacon." If you follow the food philosopher Homer Simpson, or just really like bacon, Carl's Jr. and Hardee's is serving up new treats in a handful of test markets.

Bakersfield is one of the test markets for the Carl's Jr.'s menu with candied bacon. The three items are a candied bacon angus thickburger, a candied bacon biscuit with fried egg, and a candied bacon snack pack. The items are available now through Dec. 12, 2021.

The bacon is described as applewood-smoked candied bacon that's made in-house, coated with caramelized brown sugar and pepper. It's a spin on classic sweet bacon for the holidays.

Here's a description of each menu item.
