It’s not a secret that the pork lovers over at J&D’s adore their bacon so much they’ll go to extreme lengths to spread the love. They’ve made Bacon Salt, Baconnaise, Bacon Lip Balm and even Bacon Lube (um, yeah), so it was entirely plausible that their latest launch, Bacon Baby Formula, was as real as Frito Pie. Launched with a press release detailing supposed scientific research on the competitive edge babies who drink this smokey concoction will have — “It ensures that your infants get the fat, proteins and complex nutrients that they need to excel at an early age, all in a savory, delicious tasting formula.” — the new product caused a veritable internet s**t storm yesterday and blew up on Fail Blog. Alas, it was too good (or bad) to be true. Late last night we received an email straight from J&D’s headquarters, fessing up that it was all an April Fool’s Day hoax. However, judging from all the attention it got, we wouldn’t be surprised if they went ahead and moved forward with production.
