BACON BACON BACON BACON
“Bacon… Bacon… where’s the bacon?! Smells like bacon!!” We’re all familiar with that silly dog on the Beggin Strips® commercial, we smile and maybe chuckle a bit, but there’s no denying why we find it so amusing; we’re just like that dog (well, most of us anyway). I know I have fond memories of waking up to the smell of bacon on a Saturday morning.
We love bacon to pieces, and even those pieces aren’t left behind. We love it so much, that companies are capitalizing on it, bloggers are blogging about it, and chefs are going ballistic with it.
Even Wikipedia has a Bacon Mania page, which refers to the passionate bacon enthusiasm in the United States and Canada.
23K Gold Chocolate Bacon
At the Baconery, customers can find a vast array of smoked pork belly infused baked items. Get it… bakery + bacon = Baconery. Genius. They’ve even come out with the 23K Gold Chocolate Bacon. Yes. Oh yes. This piece of awesomeness is made with Nueske’s Cherrywood Bacon, Guittard Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate, and 23k edible gold flakes. It’s probably worth more than its weight in gold… just sayin’.
There’s also BaconFreak, which has an obscene amount of bacon related products. From bacon itself, to gifts, clubs, novelties, sweets, and even apparel – a bacon lover can find it there.
We can actually have everything taste like bacon… find Baconnaise, bacon salt, bacon popcorn, bacon ranch and more here at J&D’s Foods.
You may consider joining the Official Republic of Bacon Facebook page. Where according to the page, “…all our citizens are free to love bacon freely.” Their cover photo just makes my mouth water. Mmmmm, bacon.
What about the Angus BacoBurger, which is 50% ground bacon/50% Angus beef, bacon-flavored cheddar, all sitting between woven bacon strips…? “Because who needs bread when you can just use more bacon?” I concur.
Retailers and restaurants alike are tapping into the power of bacon in part because of its popularization online, and you’ll see even more creative uses for the strips of deliciousness, and for professionals that don’t sell goods but want to get in on the bacon train, consider giving any of the aforementioned products as gifts to clients. You’re welcome.
