Bacon-bourbon marshmallows are worth Kickstarting, America

Bacon, bourbon, and marshmallows are all things we love, but previously there was no convenient way to consume them together. Bacon is a good drink-stirrer, but marshmallows make terrible whiskey rocks. That's about to change thanks to Viveltre, a gourmet 'mallow company that offers Maker's Mark and pork-blasted puffs. Those alone should be enough for you to throw some money at their Kickstarter, but if you need more convincing, here are a few more of their greatest hits...

Salted caramel blondie marshmallow

The Salted Caramel Blondie features "rich dark blonde caramel" and Fleur de Sel sea salt, so be sure to wear your formal beret while eating it.

Thankfully, that's not blood! Verily, it is cake, and this is the Luscious Red Velvet.

Nutella marshmallows

As Viveltre is well-aware, this wouldn't be dessert p*rn without some Nutella. They have you covered with the Midnight Fantasy, which boasts a swirl of the spread that's downright artistic. But is it more reminiscent of early or late Van Gogh? Discuss.

Guinness marshmallows

And finally, just in case you want to conserve your precious whiskey, there's another great boozy option in the Guinness Goodness.

Go gawk at all 13 flavors (and three "locked" ones awaiting funding) on the Viveltre Kickstarter before draining your savings account for this noble cause.
