I love bacon, so much so I even wrote a post on the Bacon Game, Mom Style
. But I think this whole bacon craze may have gotten a little out of hand -- something I never thought I'd say. You see, this weekend we ate at a restaurant with a cute little shop at the front ... and horrors within -- bacon horrors. Okay, so some of it was cute, but using the word "horrors" kind of heightens the drama and I want you to read on. Below you'll find a sample of bacon-themed items available for purchase.
Remember, I'm just the messenger. I don't endorse these things, I'm just reporting them. We'll start with food items first... Sizzlin' bacon flavored sunflower seeds, anyone? Don't worry about me. I'll pass.
Or how about some bacon-flavored popcorn? It's a great thing to munch on while watching the movie, Babe.
If you've got a sweet tooth there's gummy bacon -- strawberry-flavored, thank goodness.
If you get a boo boo bacon bandages will save the day. (Strangely, this one seems to make sense to me.
And if you're hankerin' for something fun to do with friends there's the game Makin' Bacon. It's fun for the whole artery-clogged family!
What could be more appetizing than wrapping your can of pop in bacon? Thank you, bacon cozy!
Wrapping bacon around your finger is awfully nice, too, though this ring looks kind of sad.
Of course, no Christmas tree is complete without a hand-blown glass bacon ornament. Classy.
And finally, something I never dreamed I'd see: a bacon-scented Yankee Candle. Really? I smelled it, of course. It made me wretch but -- to be fair -- everyone else around me thought it smelled delicious.
Thus ends my bacon pictorial. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry. Oh, who am I kidding? I'm going to laugh...and fry up some bacon. For some reason I'm hungry right now. I wonder what that's about...
