The Bacon Boom Is Sizzling

Posted by Aaron on April 7, 2010

BACONThe “Periclean Age of Bacon” has arrived. Last night bacon was featured on ABC’s Nightline, and of course there can’t be a story about bacon without the Bacon Explosion being involved. We got a brief mention and a taste test from Josh Ozersky, who seems a bit hardcore about his bacon (even though he wrote a book on hamburgers). Apparently he thinks two pounds of bacon isn’t enough when there is a different kind of pork near it, but to each his own. Interesting piece all around with the main point being BACON IS HERE TO STAY!

(Please be patient, it takes a minute for ABC to load their video player)



So whether it’s everyday items like Bacon Bandages, Bacon Salt, Bacon Air Fresheners, and Baconnaise (all of which we actually own and use), or if it’s the more over-the-top stuff like Bacon Lip Balm, Bacon Dental Floss, and Bacon Mints (not sure about those three), stock up on your bacon stuff now. If you want to read all you need to know about bacon, be sure to buy Bacon: A Love Story from our friend Heather Lauer over at Bacon Unwrapped.

Of course you need to buy a Bacon Explosion for your bacon collection to be complete!

Bacon may have jumped the shark, but you can always catch that shark . . . and wrap it in bacon . . . and eat it!

I notice there is no bacon perfume; I recommend leaning over the pan as it fries and letting your skin absorb the sexy smoky goodness. Can a man resist a bacon babe?
