It’s breakfast time! Ready to sit down to a plate of satisfying bacon and eggs flavoured Roe? Well, perhaps that’s what your palette can believe it’s doing when savoring California Cavier Company’s newest addition to their expanding line of infused caviar.
The foodie mania over bacon is nothing new. We’ve seen bacon popcorn, bacon chocolate, bacon doughnuts, even bacon-topped cupcakes. But Tara Simon (aka The Bacon Vixen) has taken the craze to a whole new level of sinful indulgence over at her Los Angeles-based outfit, The Sticky Pig. Her product? Candied bacon: truffle-sized mouthfuls of sweet and salty deliciousness that come in flavors like orange ginger, maple cinnamon, coconut curry lime, and apple pecan dulce de leche. Drooling yet?
Chocolate chip pancakes, bacon, and syrup: the perfect lazy weekend breakfast.

You know, a lot of people look at a latticed sheet of bacon with ground pork rolled up inside of it as an unnecessarily extreme indulgence, sure to cause an instantaneous heart attack, but I look at that slab of protein and fat as — I’ll say it — health food. Ok, bear with me, please. I just read the book Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health by Gary Taubes. I know it sounds like a crazy fad diet book due to its unfortunate title, but it’s actually an obsessively researched tome that documents the history of the nutrition debates between doctors and scientists, and how the ‘fat is bad’ hypothesis won out more for political reasons than for hard scientific and medical reasons. Citing dozens of studies and dissenting researchers from the past century of medicine as well as describing clearly the physiology and science behind their claims, Taubes asserts that the increased consumption of refined carbohydrates such as bleached white flour and high fructose corn syrup are the real culprits behind the epidemic of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer.

Thanks to Pop Chart Lab’s massive Charted Connections of Rock chart, which maps out the links between 727 artists — and over 500 bands — and denotes degrees of separation across musical genres and generations, we now suspect Eric Clapton is the Kevin Bacon of music. It’s just so mindbogglingly good.
‘We’re gonna escape this dang truck or die trying!’ said the brave pig to his fellow inmates as they made their way to a slaughter house in Foshan, China. These images were captured by a keen-eyed driver who was driving right behind the moving pig transport. It shows a daring pig attempting to, as Mirror puts it, ‘save his bacon’.
