Bacon Product Fails of the Week:
1) Bacon Lip Balm - Sure, the potential could be catastrophic, all we need is products that weren't meant for consumption, to be consumed in mass bacon-flavored quantities. Luckily this product fell short. It think it's the most disgusting thing I have ever had on my lips. Ever.
2) SqueezBacon- The only bacon product I have absolutely no intention of testing. I can't do it. Somethings should not come in squeezable form. I'll let you come to your own conclusion on that one. I did happen to find this awesomely fantastic Swedish commercial for SqueezBacon. Now your breadmeat shines with deliciousness!
I have come to the conclusion that I buy bananas to watch die a slow death on my kitchen counter. I only like green bananas. I've liked them for as long as I can remember. In high school, my friends and I decided to come up with and follow random holidays. Bubble-Wrap Appreciation day, Thomas Crapper Day, National Sea Monkey Day....the list goes on. The one that I wanted most was Firm Banana Appreciation Day. There's something about the slightly sweet taste that I just prefer. So, I eat bananas while their in the green, and watch them die a slow death. I ended their week-long torture by mashing them to bits...adding bacon, peanut butter and chocolate chips. How can you go wrong?
