What happens when bacon lovers are tricked into holding teeny weeny piglets for the very first time? A lot of things, actually.
Seriously, what isn’t made better by bacon? We’ve had bacon lube, bacon floss, canned bacon, bacon art and now a bacon-fueled motorcycle. It’s been built by Hormel, which makes SPAM lunch meat (yes, that’s the edible kind of SPAM), and is the soon-to-be star of a documentary called Driven by Bacon featuring the road-tripping adventures of a self-proclaimed bacon-phile travelling between Austin and San Diego.
Bacon lovers, you’re in for a 9-ounce treat! Tactical bacon is what you’ll need in your pantry if bacon supplies ever run out (you know, like when the zombie apocalypse begins). This canned goodness is made by CMMG and boasts a 10-year shelf life. Every can has 54 slices of full cooked, ‘ready to eat’ […]
No, you haven’t died and gone to Heaven. There really is a 5K event for bacon lovers! It’s called the Bacon Chase and unbelievably, you get to wear a bacon-scented bib to run the course, with the actual course offering unlimited bacon bits for you to gobble up until you finish the race. At the […]
Haha, this is hilarious. We all know about latte art, but what about bacon art? We have nothing but respect for these everyday works of art created by bacon lovers. Proceed with caution though: if the one of the bacon baby doesn’t get you, the one of Justin Bieber’s likeness made out of minced meat […]
This 105-year-old Texan woman really knows how to throw a party! For her 105th birthday, she organized a three-day event with over 200 guests. And not only does she still party, she also loves mowing her lawn and dancing. What’s the secret to this great-grandmother’s good health? Bacon. Despite the negative health-effects typically associated with […]
Has the twenty-first century designers’ obsession with making everything bacon gone too far? I specifically mean J&D’s latest creation: bacon condoms … seriously? Bacon dresses and sunscreen have surprised the world. But what else will they baconise next?
What, a bacon subscription? Yes, if you’re a member of The Pig’s Heirloom Bacon Club, you will find a different artisan bacon — cured and smoked in teeny-weeny batches by producers who care about the taste more than quantity — at your doorstep every month. This is proof that you can now subscribe to anything […]
In case you haven’t noticed the trend as of late, bacon is so hot right now. Sizzling hot. And what better way to show your allegiance to the greasy breakfast dish than to wear it as a statement piece? Thanks to Irena Rudman, wearing your breakfast as a cozy scarf is now a fashionable option. […]
It all started with the bacon scarf; a realistic strand of seemingly edible product. This was followed by bacon shaving cream with an accompanying bacon lip balm for the ladies. Now the once bright world of bacon appreciation has turned into a dark and seedy world where the bacon obsessed will do almost anything to add a little touch of their favourite pork product to everything in sight.
No, no, we’re not done rocking the bacon bandwagon yet. Just for the lads who want to shave in top bloke fashion, bacon shaving cream actually exists. It sounds like a joke (the official marketing spew goes ‘It is best used after a hot shower or before an important date with someone you may want […]
You’d have thought the human race would have been done with our obsession with bacon by now. Apparently not. Swiss artist Natalie Luder has a limited edition run of some very realistic digitally-printed 100% silk slabs of bacon scarves with the tantalizing name of Fou Lard. At just 160 Swiss francs, it’s a steal considering it’s bacon you will never run out of.
Bacon, bacon, everywhere bacon. Following on from the trend to incorporate swine into every food and drink product imaginable, comes this, Bacon Strips Adhesive Bandages: ‘wiggly-cut, adhesive bandages that look like strips of bacon’. Good. Now go cover up that nick.
