We have been tracking the snowballing popularity of bacon-related products
on the Internet for quite some time, but even we were struck by the (possible) genius of this latest porcine perfect storm: Bacon Beer
On paper, the concept is brilliant, a combination of two of the most mantastic consumables imaginable. You might be able to improve on this, nominally, by serving it in a stein made of cheese fries. In practice, the jury is still out, as the brewer who is currently incubating
the smoky brew hasn't said when the final product will be available.
Is this a sign of the apocalypse, or at least that bacon's popularity has run its course? With creations ranging from the bacon bra to bacon-wrapped bananas
to bacon Band-Aids, is there room in our clogged hearts for another hickory-tinged creation?
Or is this, instead, a sign of bacon's durability as a pop-culture touchstone? Check out more products of porcine goodness after the jump.
This bra isn't quite as sexy as it should be. Maybe there can be too much of a good thing.
Walking around town sucking on a cold slice of bacon is as uncouth as it is delicious. (Trust us, we know.) But stick a bacon pop in your mouth and you get the same savory flavor without offending polite society.
If you have an addiction to bacon the way Elvis did, there's only one cure: the "Bacon Spray" inhaler.
After years of fruity feminization, it's time the martini became a man's drink once again, with the addition of pig skin (or some other part thereof).
Bacon Breath Mints
If you want to impress the ladies (or at least their chihuahuas), a mouthful of bacon breath mints will definitely do the trick.
Move over tortilla bowl, there's a new piece of edible flatware on the block. It won't be long until Lil Jon exchanges his diamond-encrusted pimp cup for this decadently succulent receptacle: the bacon-encrusted bacon cup.
Bacon Air Freshener
We're not sure about this one: If you want your place to smell of bacon (and who wouldn't?), why not just fry up a slab and get the added bonus of a yummy snack? That being said, this product would be good for messing with vegetarians or hungry dieters.
Like traditional salt, bacon salt brings out the flavor in a dish. Unlike traditional salt, the flavor will always be bacon.
Bacon Ice Cream
The only way this could be less kosher is if it was soaked in blood.
We're not sure if this tastes like bacon (like gummy cola tastes like cola), or tastes like gummy (like gummy worms taste like gummy). We're hoping it tastes like bacon.
