Joe Burrow doesn’t just have an excellent throwing arm; he also knows how to score with the best party snacks… including this one in particular. Joe Burrow’s Bacon Wrapped Shrimp are a touchdown for the taste buds. The shrimp are pink and plump, wrapped in succulent, crispy bacon and sweetened with brown sugar to balance out the savory richness. There’s even a hint of spice to really round it out! There’s a reason Joe Burrow’s Bacon Wrapped Shrimp disappear almost as soon as they hit the table! It’s a real “bengal” of a snack!
