Chunky Pig

Gina Conedera is a pastry chef consultant. Translation: she spends her days coming up with awesome desserts for restaurants and bakeries. Clearly, she saved the best idea for herself, because we can't imagine anything better than her sweet, salty, porky popcorn. In her kitchens in Oakland, California, she starts with Peter's Kettle Corn, then adds pure Vermont maple syrup and twice-candied Niman Ranch (nitrate-free) bacon. Oink!
