2010 – Year of Bacon?!?

baconpagaent

So J. Walter Thompson, agency of record for Nestle, Kraft and Kellogg, just listed their top 5 food trends for 2010 and guess what tasty meat made the list…

Bacon is no longer just for BLT sandwiches: The pork product is showing up in cocktails made with bacon-infused liquor or the new Bakon Vodka. It’s also in desserts such as bacon-and-egg ice cream and chocolate bars.

Welcome to the party.  As with my post last week about bacon appearing in promotional / ad work for other companies…when agencies get around to “recognizing” the fad, you may already be on the down side of popularity.  Sorry bacon, you’ve become (GASP) mainstream.

But don’t worry baby…I will ALWAYS love you ;-)

The rest of the list: organic fast food, wine cocktails, health-claim backlash and sardines.  Yes, they called sardines the tuna of 2010 (good luck with that).

Bacon, the “Meat of Life”…

It’s been a long week!  I’ve been so busy that I had no chance to read any of my daily nerd blogs unitil this morning.  I’m so glad I took the time to catch up or I would have missed this…

Click this link to see the chart in all 2000px wide meatness.

Notice bacon is element numero uno!  As the chart points out:

Bacon is the “meat of life”.  Without bacon life on earth as we know it would not exist.

No arguements from me.  I mean come on, the blog’s called “The Daily Bacon“, not “The Daily Pigs Feet“.

The Bacon Song…

I tried to come up with something witty for a headline but sometimes you can out smart yourself. You just need to let the post stand for itself, especially when you have content like this. I give you “The Bacon Song“:

Yup, I know what you are thinkin’ and that’s what I thought too…

Hope everyone had a great weekend! Glad to be back!

Tell me what I want to hear, darrrlin.
Put your head on my baaaaaaaacon!

With apologies to Paul Anka (skewing old I know), allow me to present the “Shapin’ Bacon” Plush Toy & Pillow.

baconplushtoy1

With “patented crinkle technology”, this is one of the better plush bacons I have ever seen. 

Handmade by the find folk(s) at Sweet Meats, just $17.99 and they are collector’s items as only 1,000 will be made.

You know you want one…
