I know I've lately seen a lot of love for bacon products in Hamsterdam and the world at large. Allow me a brief Bubba-from-Forrest-Gump list (clicking on each will open a new browser window with the image): Bacon cupcakes, bacon pancakes, bacon doughnuts, bacon mayonnaise, bacon lollipops, bacon ice cream, bacon soda, bacon lip balm, bacon-hotdog-turtle thingies, and of course, everybody's favorite: the Bacon Explosion.
But seriously folks, we've gone a little too far. Some of those look awesome (yum on the Explosion for sure), but some are beyond ridiculous. We've gone past the part of bacon as the most delicious salty food on the planet and turned it into an ingredient for a weird cornucopia of food or even non-food products. Not all of them work. I had chocolate-covered bacon at a fudge shop in Wisconsin Dells last summer, that was truly awful. And I'll never, ever try a bacon soda. But you know what made it finally jump the shark? The product below. Wow. This is a real product, folks, from a major U.S. consumer products manufacturer (Clorox Co). We've become bacon addicts beyond reason.
