At Burger King, you can “have it your way.” And one Japanese guy really took that to heart, by customizing his burger with more than 1,000 pieces of bacon. My very special next boyfriend candidate likes bacon so much that he had the fryolater workers at his fave fast food joint add 1,050 slabs to his sandwich, rendering it absolutely impossible to actually shove in one’s mouth. Not that he didn’t try. Which is what I actually admire in him — his sandwich fortitude, or sandwichatude, if you will. It warms my cold vegan heart. [Huffington Post]
Jones’ Bacon Flavored Soda is a gastronomic experiment I don’t want to partake in. Two bottles cost $10 and come with a bag of cheddar bacon popcorn, bacon lip balm, and bacon gravy. The perfect gift for that special pig in your life. [AOL] Keep reading »
Men don’t have a passion for sweet treats the way women do. If given a choice between a sugary confection and something savory, men will choose the latter. This is not some kind of random, sweeping gender generalization I just made up. I have scientific proof. Like many big cities, New York has seen the arrival over the past few years of novelty food trucks. These trucks sell everything from waffles and tacos to schnitzel and BBQ. Yesterday I walked by two such trucks. One sold cupcakes, the other Asian dumplings. Women stood eagerly in line for cupcakes, but I made a beeline for the dumplings. They were delicious, meat-stuffed globules of delight. Dumplings are my anti-cupcake. Keep reading »
Look, we’re not advocating criminal activity; we’re just saying that if you’re going to steal something from a stranger’s house, why not take some bacon? Like this as-yet-unidentified thief from Red Hill, Surry, England, who surreptitiously stole a telephone and a packet of bacon from a house. While the telephone has since been recovered, the bacon is still on the lam (or in the thief’s belly, duh).
Said Detective Con Knowles, who is diligently working the case, “The victims are at a loss to understand why someone would break in to their house and steal a packet of bacon and we are equally stumped as to who this potentially peckish suspect is.” [BBC] Keep reading »
The sad thing is I actually know people who would eat this: a vendor at the Wisconsin State Fair is serving up a cheeseburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme donut as a bun. You can get it with chocolate-covered bacon, too! But your coronary artery wants to know: How many calories? Keep reading »
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. Keep reading »
Seriously, would you? The porkophiles behind Bacon Salt, Baconnaise and Bacon Lip Balm have just come out with another squealingly interesting product — bacon-flavored lube. I love bacon as much as the best person, but no. Just no. [via Geekologie] Keep reading »

Lick: Maple Bacon Lollypops

Bacon candy is really real at Lollyphile.com.
