Did ya hear about the new app and iPhone dongle from Oscar Mayer?
It’s an alarm clark app that runs on your iPhone. And when the alarm sounds, it sounds like bacon. And, looks like bacon.
And … and here’s the best part … it smells like bacon. If, and that’s a big if, you have the dongle. It plugs into your iPhone and, when the alarm sounds, emits the aroma of bacon. So you can wake to the sight, sound, and smell of bacon.
Here’s the problem: you can’t buy one. You have to register to win one at an Oscar Mayer Website. I entered. Didn’t win. Entered again. Still didn’t win. Maybe they’ve given them all away. Or maybe I’m just not lucky enough to win one.
But, if you have one, I’d love to hear about it. Does it really work? I assume it does, but since I don’t know anyone who has one, I’ve not heard first-hand about it.
Wait a minute. Suppose they don’t have any, and never had any? What if every entry gets the same response: Sorry, you didn’t win. I mean, what if it’s a scam? They’re getting news coverage about it, stupid bloggers are going to their Website and registering and then writing up about it so that others can go to the Website…
I think I’ll just go eat some bacon. Which is really what they wanted all along. But that’s okay. It’s what I want too.

For only $299, Belcampo Meat Co. will send you 5 pounds of bacon, 4 times throughout the year, with each shipment split between American bacon and one of the following:
A classic Italian ‘bacon’ – Guanciale comes from the super savory cheek of the pig and is unsmoked. A great base for making pasta all’amatriciana or beef stews!
Also called “back bacon,” this smoked meat is made from the loin with belly attached so that one slice is both a strip of bacon and a bonus smoked pork chop! Slice it thick and layer on toasted bread with a swath of mayo – you’ve got the perfect lunch!
Another Italian classic, pancetta is much like American bacon but unsmoked and ultra rich. Pancetta makes an amazing base for pastas, roasts and more!
Perfect for the holidays, our coffee rubbed seasonal bacon packs an extra smoky/earthy punch.
Or you can go to the store 4 times and pick it up for 1/4 the price.
But either way… BACON!

2014 Ford “Bacon-Wrapped” Fiesta
Bacon’s popularity has skyrocketed in recent years, transcending its humble breakfast table beginnings to become the Johnny Cash of cured meats. So it’s only fitting that for International Bacon Day, Ford is offering driver’s a chance to let the world know how they roll by serving up a “Bacon-Wrapped” Fiesta. The exclusive vinyl wraps produced by Ford Custom Graphics for the 2014 Fiesta range from racing strips — er, stripes — and a “side of bacon” around the rear wheels, all the way up to a deluxe bacon wrap consisting of 10 rashers of mouth-watering bacon for $3347 plus installation.
Now I *would* give High Praise! to Popular Mechanics, except they did that annoying thing where you have to click 10 times to see all the pictures in this article on bacon-related products. You can sort of avoid that by clicking on “View Thumbnails” below the picture.

What makes salad taste better? Bacon. What makes popcorn taste better? Bacon! What makes bacon taste better? BACON! Yes, bacon even makes other bacon better.
