Bacon Flavored Lube?

This has got to be an April fool’s joke, right?

baconlube1

From the makers of Bacon Salt, featured on their blog:

As many of you know, we’re huge bacon lovers here at J&D’s. We now make Bacon Salt, Baconnaise and Bacon Lip Balm.  That last one seemed like a stretch at first, but now that bacon has successfully made the jump from food to personal care, we’re pushing it even further.

With that said, we’re happy to introduce our newest product, baconlube™. It’s not for sale yet, but we’re looking for early product testers to put our “Everything should taste like bacon” tagline to the test.

I won’t make this an official “Ode to Bacon”, because I’m suspicious.  We’ll see if it’s still there tomorrow.

 

***UPDATE***

It was an April Fool’s joke.  Check it out

Fat people love bacon!

This is the eighth part in a series dedicated to fat people’s love for bacon.  At least once a week  Whenever I get around to it, I will post either someones odd use of it in a food dish, or just a new and inventive way to bring bacon to our palates.

mstlogoIn this edition…

…a man will DIE.

 

Mike J. Nelson, the face of the Mystery Science Theatre 3000 series (I loved it), IS EATING ONLY BACON FOR A MONTH!!!

Either because of a bet, or because he wants to prove his manhood, the only food he will consume will be bacon for the entire month of February.

“In other words “American bacon”. No “Canadian bacon”, which is really just lunchmeat. No pork chops. No turkey bacon. No “tofacon” or any such horror. Just bacon.

No condiments allowed. No syrups, or hot sauces, or pureed vegetables in the form of ketchup. No sauces at all. Just nature’s finest bacon, all by its dignified self.”

 His beverage allowance:

“I am making allowances for the following beverages: beer, wine, martinis and water. No juices, no V8, nothing that could be construed as “healthy”.

HAHA!  This gets better and better!  I seriously wish I had thought of this a few years ago.

He releases his stats at day one:

“…in the interest of advancing the bacon arts I am willing to release these few vitals: my waist size is 33/34. My blood pressure is pretty consistently 117/65. My weight hovers around 190. I’m 6′2″. I willing to bet you my weight will not change (may lose a little, actually) my blood pressure will probably drop a little, and I won’t get any taller.”

I recon he will most definitely lose weight… Right before he slips into a coma.

3000_lYou can read all of Mike’s posts regarding his bacon journey on his blog, under the tag “Month o’ Bacon”.  I find myself dissapointed at his bacon diet updates, however.  They are not very detailed at all, and he hasn’t once described how he feels eating only fatty, salty meat!  It makes me question his truthfulness.  I mean, considering how this guy felt in Ode to Bacon: Part 3 after having one bacon sandwich, I think our favorite bad movie commentator would at least say something!

 

To this, though, he has this to say:

“As it is, I am a fairly committed carnivore and haven’t the slightest doubt that I can do it without difficulty, but I can understand if you’re dubious about my success. Rest assured that I would never sully the good name of bacon by cheating.”

In response to the idea that eating only bacon may harm him:

…bacon is wonderful and would never hurt you. Bacon loves you.”

Of course he picked February, the shortest month of the year.  Wuss.

UPDATE:

Upon checking back to Mike’s blog to see how his month o’ bacon finished up…

…he reveals that he didn’t really eat only bacon for a month.  SURPRISE!  Did I call this or what?

Yes, I really, really did eat nothing but bacon for a few days short of an entire month. Once the whole thing started to seem sort of, I don’t know, silly – is that the word I’m looking for? – and my family was growing increasingly frustrated with the stunt, […] Despite my earlier non-apology apology, I do ask your bacony, smoky, forgiveness.

Fat people love bacon!

This is the seventh part in a series dedicated to fat people’s love for bacon.  At least once a week  Whenever I get around to it, I will post either someones odd use of it in a food dish, or just a new and inventive way to bring bacon to our palates.

This edition is inspired by a comment on Part 6, which said:

:::::::shudder:::::::: Baconnaise???? That is just wrong on so many levels. I bet all that stuff is a big hit in the deep South. I’ve never seen it out here, but then I wasn’t looking for it. Can bacon cookies be far behind?

 

Can they be?  The answer is no…

Fat people love bacon!

This is the sixth part in a series dedicated to fat people’s love for bacon.  At least once a week  Whenever I get around to it, I will post either someones odd use of it in a food dish, or just a new and inventive way to bring bacon to our palates.

Perhaps this post would be better labeled:  Ode to Bacon Salt.

Part 5 introduced us to Bacon Salt, and I wanted to first let you know that I purchased it and tried it!  I’ll have to say that it’s not bad!  As evidence on their blog, I can imagine quite a few uses for this bacon fairy dust.  

However, nothing could have prepared me for the next additions to the Bacon Salt empire.  The empire that will soon take over the sodium laden, MSG filled flavoring market.

Addition #1:

baconnaise3pack

Baconnaise!  Just like the salt, this one is also vegetarian and kosher.  Is it possible to have an erection and a heart attack at the same time?  I can’t wait.

Addition #2:

baconlipbalm

Yup, that’s no joke.

I wonder if more men or women would buy this one?  Perhaps more women would buy it so as to be more kissable to cured meat loving males…  That reminds me of this commercial:

 

I would not be surprised if the B-Salt geniuses come out with a bacon perfume very soon.  

OH!  One more thing…  Don’t forget the holidays are coming up.  It’s time to start gift shopping!

Heyyy Ohhh!!

And… we’re back with more bacon love for all you bacophiles out there.

Fat people love bacon.

This is the fifth part in a series dedicated to fat people’s love for bacon.  At least once a week  Whenever I get around to it, I will post either someones odd use of it in a food dish, or just a new and inventive way to prepare bacon itself.

In this edition, I bring you:

 

 

 

Yup, you read that slogan correctly.  The inventors of this gem have taken us into a whole new world of flavored sodium goodness.  Gone are the days of lacing your food with plain old, boring, white table salt! 

You may be wondering the same thing I wondered when I found this.  I thought, this stuff must be made up of crushed up bacon bits, and salt.  BUT NO!  It actually has no bacon in it whatsoever!  Supposedly, it’s vegetarian! 

Bacon Fanatics (inventors)

Bacon Fanatics (inventors)

 

I don’t know who these guys are kidding, but we’re not fooled.  There’s no possible way on Xenu’s green earth that the true taste of bacon can be had without first pan frying up some pork bellies!

Actually, these guys have an interesting product here.  All 4 flavors (original, hickory, peppered, natural) are zero calorie, vegetarian, and kosher!  Jews rejoice! 

 

They have a blog on their website where they talk about new markets they’ve sprinkled into, or TV spots the product has been featured on, and recipes that either their friends come up with, or fans send into them.  They also have over 1000 friends on their myspace page. 

They sometimes stress the idea that their product is a great alternative to real bacon because of the fact that it’s fat free and calorie free.  They even have a video of how bacon is “manufactured” on their blog, perhaps as a means to get readers to not find real bacon appetizing!

For your viewing pleasure, I will post that same video here, for that very reason…  hehe.

**WARNING** —  If you are at all sensitive to visual images and are easily grossed out, or are scared of knowing where your food comes from, do not watch this.

 

 

As the Bacon Salt© inventors say in reference to this video:

Apparently bacon is not made by magical bacon fairies.”

I would say that is an understatement.

My favorite quote from the video:

As the fat cooks off the bacon, it drains into a trough.  It will be used to make gravy, and pet foods.”

Pet foods?
