Etsy Week – Bacon Cookies…

It’s been a while since I went trollin’ on Etsy for fine, hand crafted, bacon related products.  So long that when I popped “bacon” in the search, I was overwhelmed with new goodness…upon this discovery I quickly assessed that this would become “Etsy Week“.  It works out well thematically as well as “Maker Faire” is back into town this weekend at The Henry Ford.

So let’s explore the creative world of handmade baconcraft!  We start with these scrumptious wonders:

Bacon cookies!!

These are great looking cookies.  Sure they may be a little expensive ($15 for 1/2 dozen), but they’re big (7″ x 2″) and made with love ;-)  Alas, there is no real bacon in these tasty treats, but I am fairly confident you’d still get quite a smile out of the bacon lover in your family if you presented them with a box of these!

Pick up a box today!

Oh, they also make these:

Bacon – check, Star Wars – check, my new favorite bakery – quite possibly ;-)

Bacon Boutique – BATTLE!

Longtime Brother and FoTDB Charlie (SHOUT OUT) found this in a Younkers in Wisconsin this weekend…

Couple of things here:

1) a bacon t-shirt for kids = SOLID!

b) Scratch and Sniff?! I’m guessing just the sticker as I have no idea how a scented tee would fare after the first wash.  Still, nice “value-add”…

Tres) Why is the bacon battling?  Are they warring against each other? That’d just be a sad, sad waste of fine pork product.  Are they facing off against some other breakfast food?  Oatmeal maybe?  I’m old and confused.

Aside from all that, it’s just fun.

Don’t have a Younkers near you?  Pick one up from their website.  It’s on sale right now for just $9.99.  For boys (or girls, I won’t discriminate) sizes 8-20.
