Bacon Related Product Update: Bacon Roses
Are you sick and tired of overspending on roses for your lady only to see them wither and end up tossed in the trash? Well, some fantastic bastard has come up with a solution. Bacon roses! The bouquet the whole family can enjoy. They really are the gift that keeps on giving. Every time your lady love gets her cholesterol checked she can be reminded of your affection.
I checked the Teleflora rose colors meaning chart and apparently bacon roses haven’t made the cut. Red means love, white means innocence, yellow means friendship. I’ll just assume that bacon means “let’s eat!”
Here’s the How-to on bacon roses. Remarkably you’ll need a drill. Huh?Pin It Tweet
Bacon Related Product Update
I give you the bacon coffin. Bacon may be to die for, but this seems a bit extreme. When I first heard of the bacon coffin I thought it was a waste of perfectly edible bacon. Alas, the coffin is not made out of bacon but instead looks like bacon. If you’re sensing the end is near, have $3000 to blow, and lost all dignity years ago then maybe the bacon coffin is for you. The bacon coffin comes equipped with a bacon scented air freshener. If you’re going to be worm food anyway you might as well smell like bacon.Pin It Tweet
The start of the new baseball season has brought a flurry of intriguing/grotesque ballpark culinary creations like the Nats’ “Strasburger” or the Rangers’ $26 wiener. If you’re looking to scratch your bacon itch head to the Southside of Chicago where the White Sox are serving up a hot dog with pastrami bacon. I’ve never tried pastami bacon but it’s been added to my bucket list. Of course, consuming large quantities of pastrami bacon could put the fulfillment of my bucket list in grave danger. I’ll assume it’s worth the risk until proven otherwise.
Here is the list of the new menu items the Pale Hose will be serving up this season. I need me a pastrami cheesesteak like now.Tweet
If shoving an entire pizza down your cakehole isn’t enough to satisfy your insatiable need for fat calories Pizza Hut may have finally delivered a fast food item to trigger your gag reflex. Pizza Hut has unveiled the hot dog crust pizza in its United Kingdom restaurants. I kind of think calling Pizza Hut a restaurant is like calling a spot-a-pot a master bath, but whatever. The pizza features a hot dog stuffed into the crust of a large pizza and features a mustard drizzle. I’m willing to try just about anything but I don’t think even I could choke down a piece of this mess. Sadly, the chain reportedly has no plans to introduce the hot dog crust pizza in the US any time soon. Looks like we’ll have to keep chasing the KFC double down and whatever Taco Bell is trying to kill us with this week.Pin It Tweet
The Bacon Sundae
According to this Huffington Post report Burger King is testing a new bacon sundae in the Nashville, Tennessee market. I know the combo of bacon and ice cream may be off putting to some but this thing looks pretty good to me. I’ve had chocolate covered bacon ice cream before at a shop in Rehoboth Beach and it was pretty damn good. That ice cream had small bits of chocolate covered bacon spread throughout vanilla ice cream. The Burger King bacon sundae looks like it has one large piece of bacon serving as a kind of makeshift spoon. Even if the tests don’t go well and the bacon sundae is scrapped it could be easily copied at home. I know what I’ll be having for dessert tonight.Pin It Tweet
Bacon Related Update: Japanese monster Whopper
So Burger King was running a special in Japan that allowed customers to add fifteen pieces of bacon to their burger for a mere $1.23. Sounds like a helluva deal. Some porkophile apparently had $86 bucks to waste and ordered 70 upgrades. Yes, 70. The resulting monstrosity contained 1050 strips of bacon on top of a Whopper and clocked in at a mind numbing 14,300 calories. That thing would have Mothra running for the throne. If you’d like to watch said idiot attempt to eat his creation watch the video above.Tweet
Bacon Related Product Update: Lay’s Classic BLT Potato Chips
I can personally vouch for this week’s bacon product. I ran out of pretzels at work this week which left my lunch on Tuesday a bit lacking. I took a stroll to the campus store where I noticed these beauties. The fact that I nearly devoured the entire bag in one sitting should vouch for its deliciousness. Of course, I’m a total chip whore so I don’t have the most discerning palate. I was able to pull myself away enough to have leftovers which I polished off on Wednesday.Pin It Tweet
We know pigs can’t fly, but can they float?
The Isaac H. Evans is a schooner based out of Rockland, Maine. You’re probably wondering “Why the hell should I care?” Well, you should care because they are now offering a “Bacon Lovers” cruise. The ad for the bacon cruise states as follows:
Bacon Lovers Cruise. The Captain loves bacon and even though it’s on the menu every trip, it’s really on the menu this trip. There will be a bacon-centric menu as well free bacon-themed treats! This is a new themed cruise for 2012 and we think it’s going to be absolutely yummy! As always, we are happy to accommodate special dietary requests.
If you plan on being in Maine in September, have an interest in sailing, want to spend four nights gorging on bacon products, and have $640 to toss in the crapper give the good people at the Isaac H. Evans a call.
