It’s not often that my professional and personal lives so totally interconnect, but in the case of bacon, there is a clear cross-over. I work in the IT industry (for the awesome IT software company Spiceworks – check out this video about zombies and, yes, bacon), and I work every day with IT pros all over the world. What brings them all together? Bacon. Yep, IT guys love bacon just about as much as we CrossFitting Paleo nuts do. And why shouldn’t they? Bacon is quite simply one of the tastiest treats out there, and I snarf down every little scrap when the opportunity arises.
Now, I really do love bacon, but it would seem that there are some folks out there who REALLY love bacon, and they’ve got the merchandise to prove it. I recently purchased a variety of bacon-related items as prizes for our software conference a few weeks ago – I had no idea how much bacon-related paraphernalia was out there. It’s a little scary. And a little awesome. Check out what I snagged… Not gonna lie, it would take a braver woman than me to try out the bacon-flavored toothpaste.
Bacon-Scented Soap Plus, the bar of soap looks like a huge slab of bacon. Lather up!
Bacon Flavored Mints Hmm, not sure my vegetarian hubby would be super pleased if I started popping these.
Follow the jump for more awesome bacon-ness.
Bacon Wallet This is bacon-related merchandise I can really get behind.
Bacon-Shaped Bandages Same here! Imagine bandaging your pull-up-bar-ripped hands with some bacon…
Bacon Lip Balm Mmm. Meaty.
Bacon-Flavored Toothpaste And really, this one is a little nuts. But, I’m kinda glad that it exists.
Okay, I’m hungry now – I’ll be back when I’ve had some bacon.
