Everything's Better with Bacon!


Admit it, the mere mention of that word made you drool just now. Now wipe off your keyboard and let's get to the meat of this post (pun absolutely intended). Bacon can be used for so many things. It's used as a breakfast food, of course, it can be found on your salad at lunch and it will make any burger at dinner better.  Bacon has even made its way into dessert when it's covered in chocolate. Yes, bacon can do anything. Heck, I bet some vegetarians still crave the yummy, crunchy, chewy baconness of bacon!

And it was actually an alert vegetarian reader named Andrea who showed me that bacon is so much more than just a food. She showed me that bacon can actually heal.

Behold, the bacon bandage!

Now, in the spirit of full disclosure, I should probably tell you that this isn't real bacon. Real bacon can only heal the wounds of your soul, but these bacon-like band-aids are the perfect way to say "Hey! I got injured! And I like bacon!"

But it doesn't end there. Archie McPhee, the genius company behind the bacon bandage also offers a bunch of other bacon bounty including bacon air fresheners, bacon floss, bacon-flavored gumballs, bacon lip balm, bacon mints (don't quite know how that one works. . .oh well), bacon soap, bacon toothpaste and more!

Now some may say this is overload, but I beg to differ. In fact, I am willing to try every single bacon-related item on that site while incorporating something with bacon into every meal for an entire month. . .presuming someone else is paying for it. I've blown my months budget on a bacon suit.

Yes, it is from my sis-in-law, Wendy Paul, author.

I have seen these bacon bandages in real life. And I gotta say--they look pretty real. Nothing like taping up a flesh wound with another animal's flesh!
