Yummy, Yummy Bacon and Other Stuff

Get a Whiff of BaconAir…

For those of you who have stuck around here for a while, you know of my love / not so much relationship with the folks at JD’s., makers of Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, MMMvelopes, and most recently bacon cola with Jones.

One one hand, I truly appreciate their inventiveness.

On the other, none of their products include any bacon (at all) and all their stuff kinda taste like yuck.

Well, they are at it again.  This time with the creation of BaconAir

Their “creation” story is pretty good, here’s an excerpt:

Hungry for bacon but don’t want the calories? Try BaconAir! Competing in a sporting event or spelling bee? Try BaconAir! Vacuuming the house? Try BaconAir! Taking a test? Try BaconAir! Driving a race car or semi-truck? Try BaconAir. If you want to run faster, jump higher, look and feel more attractive or memorize long sequences of numbers – try BaconAir! 

Wanna see the rest? Pop over and read it.  While you are there, if you are so moved, you can get your name on the waiting list.  Retail is $8.99.

Better with Bacon – Bean and Bacon Fiesta Dip

Oh man…this looks good…I could see myself sitting down and dipping tortilla chips in this until every bite was gone (cause I am a disgusting man).

Bacon Tea?!?

Yes, bacon flavored tea…this one is scaring me a little and I am not one who is easily scared…

bacontea1

So I was this close to picking this up until I read this:

Ingredients: Tea, immitation bacon bits, natural flavors.

Hmmmm.

First, immitation (sic) bacon bits?  No thank you.

Second, natural flavors? I’m guessing that is only maple essence.  The only natural flavoring from bacon comes from bacon fat and I really don’t think they steeped the leaves in pig grease…

So yeah for the idea, boo for execution.

Not buying this, but feel free if you feel so inclined.  If you do, tell me about it…

Behold the MEATINI…

So some inspiring young lads across the pond had an idea…

How can we get an entire English breakfast into a martini glass made of bacon?

The answer…behold the MEATINI

See how they came up with this mad creation at http://www.rathergood.com/meatini, if you DARE!!!  Bwahahahahahahahahahaha!

Thanks to Rebecca F., TDB’s Bacon and Cultural Studies Correspondent for the heads up (SHOUT OUT).

That is all.  Happy Monday everyone.

Suck On These…

Bacon candies!

What did you think I meant?  REALLY?!? That’s what you thought? Get your mind out of the gutter.

Anywho, the fine folks at Archie McPhee have done it again.  There is nothing they won’t make taste like bacon!

From their site:

These red and white striped hard candies look just like the ones that grandma used to put in her fancy candy dish for the holidays. But, my oh my, would grandma be in for a surprise if she popped one in her mouth!

Oh my indeed.

$5.95 for a tin with about 12 pieces of candy.
