In my eyes you should never ask the question “Should I eat bacon?” That being said, many of you turn your back against bacon for a variety of reasons, such as…
- You don’t want to gain weight
- You’d prefer turkey bacon
- You’re lying about preferring turkey bacon
- You’re a vegetarian
- You think it’s too greasy
- You (fill in your own excuse)
If you’ve ever made the wrong choice (aka, not eating bacon), here is a fool-proof flowchart that will help you find your way to bacon heaven. This is not my own graphic, but you can see the creator in the bottom left corner, ScienceLoveLSD.com. I like science, love is great, but don’t do LSD. Do bacon!

Good Morning everyone! I’m sure you’re all getting ready to roll out of bed (at least in Colorado… if you’re in New York you’ve probably already visited Dunkin’ Donuts by now). For all of you that are still hitting the snooze button, have I got a treat for you! I found the perfect waker-uper: Bacon Toothpaste! Now, I’m not about to purchase this awkward, maybe strangely delicious, item – but for some of the intense bacon fans out there, (or for the perfect White Elephant Gift), I thought I would pass it along.
PerpetualKid.com is selling Bacon Toothpaste for the low price of $4.49, so what are you waiting for?
I was browsing the web the other day (mainly focusing on bacon-ish items) and I came across About.com’s Bacon Equivalents & Substitutions article. I’ve created the graphic below to sum up About.com’s list. Let me know if you have any additional bacon equivalents/substitutions that I can add! Enjoy!
To get into the holiday spirit I couldn’t resist buying a box of Bacon Candy Canes from ThinkGeek.com. The image above is a little deceiving, because these candy canes have pink stripes running down them (maybe resembling the color of a pig?) Either way, I like the girly touch Before I unwrap my first candy cane, here is Think Geek’s description:
“Bacon Candy Canes looks just like standard candy canes, but with a twist. The twist isn’t the standard swirl around them or an orphan that will pick your pocket. No, the twist is they taste like bacon.”
So are they good? Well, peppermint is the overwhelming flavor with a hint of something that is meant to resemble bacon… it tastes kind of smokey. But do they taste like bacon? Not even close and I think they have a long way to go to perfect the bacon taste.
However, this might be the perfect stocking stuffer or gift for the bacon lover in your life. Nothing will light up their face more than receiving a unique bacon present!
