Kelley says: "These bundles are great to serve to guests, as they provide a nice presentation. Even people who don't care for asparagus may like these. Who wouldn't love bacon on anything! Some, who are trying to watch calories, will remove the bacon wrap prior to eating. But, the bacon grease goodness is still there."
