So Much Win!: Burger King To Serve Bacon Sundae

By David Ponce

Continuing to chronicle our obsession with bacon, we bring you news of the most exciting item that Burger King will be launching as part of their Summer Menu: Bacon Sundae. Clocking in at a hearty 510 calories, 18 grams of fat and 61 grams of sugar, the tasty dessert will feature vanilla soft serve with fudge, caramel, bacon crumbles and a piece of bacon. It’s part of the chain’s Summer Menu, which also includes other non-traditional BK items like Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich, Sweet potato fries, and Frozen Lemonade. Ever since being taken private by the private equity firm 3G Capital in late 2010, the company has been expanding its offering and repositioning itself to cater to more than young men, potentially appealing to moms and families as well.

Expect the Summer Menu (with a BACON SUNDAE!) to be available throughout the summer or while supplies last.

Wake Up To The Smell Of Bacon, Without The Bacon

By David Ponce

Continuing our love affair with all things bacon, we bring you news of what could be seen as the most wonderful candle… or the most cruel candle ever created. Yes, it’s bacon scented and will fill your apartment with God’s own cologne for as much as the 70 hours it reportedly burns for, but you will die for a piece of the real thing that whole time. Depending on the clog levels in your arteries, this might not be the best idea.

And sure, you’ve seen these before… although this particular one is made from actual rendered bacon fat and not the cheap synthetic imitations.

It’s brilliant.

$15.

Jack In The Box Has Bacon Milkshakes

By David Ponce

Bacon is the official food of men, geeks and anyone with tastebuds. And some sense. Bacon can do no harm; it can only end wars. Bacon transcends all preconceived notions of how it should be consumed and shows up in a never-ending assortment of foodstufs. Like milkshakes. Yes, bacon… in a milkshake. Just stringing these words together feels harmonious. Jack In The Box, you make humanity proud.

But if your mind is cloudy and you fail to see the brilliance, one reviewer “wouldn’t call it “revolting.” And that, my friends, is salesmanship at its finest.

Bacon Maple Ale, Oh Lord…

By David Ponce

There are those flavor combinations in life that are just meant to be: peanut butter and jelly, or peanut butter and chocolate for example. Maple and bacon fit the bill even more perfectly, and when we found out about a collaboration between Rogue brewery and Portland’s Voodoo Doughnut to create Maple Bacon ale, we damn near had a stroke. Of joy. Can anyone think of a better breakfast? Cold, carbonated, maple-and-bacon-flavored liquid cereal?

Don’t agree, America? Sound, uh, unhealthy to you? Well, your pizza is a vegetable, so… yeah…

$13 for a 750ml bottle.

Bacon Lube? Yeah… Bacon Lube

By David Ponce

Bacon is a recurring theme around these parts: you got bacon lip balm, tactical canned bacon, bacon jam, bacon muffins… and now… now perhaps the strangest of them all, Bacon Lube, “the world’s first bacon-flavored personal lubricant and massage oil.” It’s water based and it is exactly what you think it is. A joke? Not so much.

Before you start giving meat-flavored massages, we have one small admission to make – baconlube began as an elaborate April Fool’s prank and was never intended to be a real product. But when the joke ended, the emails kept coming. People harassed us via email, in public and in highly inappropriate ways (thanks for that). The waiting list grew to over 3,000 people. Expectations were built.

So who’s responsible for this highly anticipated creation actually coming to life? You are, that’s who.

Yeah so, go get horizontal bacon style, my friends. It’s $12 a bottle.

Bacon Muffins Sound Like A Swell Idea

By David Ponce

Any geek worth his salt must have a healthy appreciation for the god of foods. We certainly do, as we’ve written about Bacon-y creations over and over: bacon baby formula, bacon jam, bacon lip balm and even bacon floss. You can now add to that delicious list Bacon Muffins. They come in Bacon Blueberry and Bacon Pumpkin Spice flavors and are $22 for a 6 pack.

While browsing the order page… I noticed several other bacon pastries. I will now proceed to give them all my cash.

Bacon Flavored Instant Baby Formula Obviously Doesn’t Really Exist, Obviously Needs To

Bacon Baby Infant Formula (Image courtesy J&D's)
By Andrew Liszewski

Thanks to a fake but convincing package design, Bacon Baby, which is supposedly bacon flavored instant baby formula, looks like you just might find it on supermarket shelves next to that boring flavored Gerber stuff. In fact, were it not for the outlandish claims on the J&D’s website, I’d probably try and order some for myself. I mean the great taste of bacon without all that exhausting chewing? It’s win win!

The results were absolutely impressive. By the age of 4 months, our test subject started to exhibit some amazing abilities including walking and talking. By 6 months of age, she could read and memorize her early stage children’s books and showed an extreme level of coordination and balance – so much so that she was enrolled in gymnastics and ballet with children 5 years older than she was! At two years old, she read her first 300 page book, memorized the Declaration of Independence and (this is absolutely true) began composing her first symphony.

Even though I’m sure this was an April Fool’s Day prank of some sort, I think we can all agree that bacon, which for some reason still isn’t considered its own food group, is just the thing a growing newborn needs. So here’s to hoping that J&D, aka Justin and Dave, come to their senses and try and find a way to make this product a reality. It happened with ThinkGeek’s Tauntaun sleeping bag, and that doesn’t even smell like bacon!

I Just Bought Some Bacon Jam

bacon-jam-1

By David Ponce

We love us bacon something rare. Doesn’t everyone? So what better than bacon jam? Bacon jam? Read on:

It is something we’ve been cooking up for a couple of years now on our trailers and for our burgers

…….we take a big bunch of really really good bacon, and render it down…add a bunch of spices..onions, etc..and let it simmer for about 6 hours…give it a quick puree, and blast chill it…and you have bacon jam..

It’s $12 per jar and it looks like they’ll ship just about anywhere. Link to gadgets? None, but it’s bacon so who the heck cares?

I just ordered three.
