Bikes, Bacon & Bi-Rite: Ice Cream Sundae Fundraiser in San Francisco, 5/20

When God calls you answer, right? 

Well, if you’re an artisan food manufacturer in the Bay Area, Bi-Rite Market is God and when they call, you say, “Yes!”--you can worry about the question later.

The question was if we would like Chunky Pig to be featured in an ice cream sundae created to celebrate Bike Month and benefit Pedal Revolution & New Door Ventures.  We said, “Yes!” and, poof, the "This Little Piggy Rides to Market Sundae" was born from small batch creamery heaven.  Imagine two flavors of ice cream, Brown Sugar Ginger Caramel & Vanilla Bean smothered in warm Fudge Sauce and topped with our Candied Bacon Caramel Corn.   Hot & cold, smooth & crunchy, sweet & salty--it’s a bowl full of opposites, just like me and a bike!

Its true.  I can make delicious bacon confections in my sleep, but I can’t ride a bike to save my life! This is another reason we are proud to support this fundraiser.  Partnering with Bi-Rite Market allows Chunky Pig to be a part of something much larger than our day-to-day hustle with companies that wouldn’t normally cross our path.  Pedal Revolution & New Door Ventures are non-profit organizations that have worked together to bring Bay Area job training to local youth for the past 15 years. 

Bi-Rite Divisadero will be collecting donations the entire month of May, but the This Little Piggy Rides to Market Sundae is only available this Wednesday May 20th from 5pm-8pm.  The event includes a discount for those who arrive on two wheels and $1 donations earn you tickets for the evening’s raffle.  Bring the family, eat some stellar ice cream and watch kids pop a wheely--while I try to secure my elbow pads.
