Skulls @ Target – Halloween 2010

Man, I have been trying to get this post up all week but I am in serious skull shopping overload and now completely broke. Went to my local Target on Sunday and picked up TONS of new stuff. The shelves were a little bare so I’m not sure if they were ransacked before I got there or if they were still putting stuff out. One things for sure, Target’s halloween stuff is going quick. Quite a few of the items I wanted to post for you guys are already out of stock online.

This skull candy dish is my pick of the year from Target but it’s only sold online. Fortunately, they have a great free shipping offer on a lot of the halloween items right now if you spend $50.00.

Adam from Big Brother 13 in a Skulls & Bacon t-shirt!

So just to follow up, if you haven’t followed Big Brother Season 13 this summer…My friend Adam made it to the final three but Rachel ended up winning. Still, he did really awesome and I think it’s great that he got to live one of his dreams.

The Skulls and Bacon t-shirt that was supposed to be in his gift basket when he won the HOH competion wasn’t included so he didn’t get it until the show was over. However, he was rockin’ the Skulls And Bacon tee at the afterparty in Vegas, baby!

And today I see an article about Adam’s time in the BB House in one of our local papers, here’s the best quote ever:

And what will he miss the most about the Big Brother house?

“The unlimited supply of bacon,” he answered without a moment of hesitation. “Not one week did we ever run out of bacon. Now, when I want bacon, I can’t go to the storage room and just pull out another package. I’m going to have to go to the store and buy it.”

Thanks for keeping me company on TV and the live feeds all summer, Adam! I hope your transition back into the world is filled with bacon and much love.

Now I know there’s only a few hours left in the day, but if you hurry there’s a coupon just for today since it’s Talk Like A Pirate Day – Take 15% Off All Skulls & Bacon T-shirts! Use Code: AAARRRGGGHHH

A Skulls & Bacon Tattoo and Bacon Toothpaste

I honestly can’t believe I haven’t updated this blog since the beginning of December. I’m so lazy, it’s a wonder I don’t just microwave my bacon in the morning. It took Matthew Stroul from Austin, TX to kick me into gear when he sent me pics of his new tattoo. His new SKULLS & BACON tattoo!

How awesome, right? I love it. Now if I ever decide to get one I’ll just be an imitator, Matthew is the original.

While I’m here, I can’t not post about Archie McPhee’s new, amazing bacony wonder – Bacon Toothpaste!

They say it’s the perfect way to keep your teeth and gums healthy while coating your mouth with the delicious flavor of smoky meat. 2.5 oz of potent paste for only $4.50, but they do have a video warning bacon-lovers not to eat the toothpaste, no matter how enticing that idea may be.

That’s it for now. Hopefully someone is still reading this blog after my self-indulgent hiatis.

Oberto Bacon Jerky Giveaway

**UPDATE!**Congrats to Phairhead for winning the Oberto Bacon Jerky! Hopefully she’ll let us know how she likes it! Natazcha was originally picked as the winner but I didn’t realize that you couldn’t ship food overseas so a consolation prize is coming her way!

A couple of weeks ago I entered a Thrillist contest on Twitter (@Thrillist) to win some bags of Bacon Jerky from Oberto. All I had to do was answer the question, how much do I love bacon? Well, duh, and yes, I was one of the winners.

So I came home the next week to this box sitting on my doorstep:
Oberto Bacon Jerky box

You might know Oberto from their jerky and other meat snacks. New to their line-up is Applewood Smoked Bacon Jerky and I was psyched to try it. I opened the box to two bags of Bacon Jerky and a Bacon Wallet!

I ripped open a bag right away and was automatically impressed by the look of the Bacon Jerky. Big pieces, thick and meaty…

Wow, this stuff is really, really good. Pure, fresh bacon taste, not too salty, not too fatty or chewy. It’s also not as leathery or tough as beef jerky and you could totally use this on a sandwich. I’d have no problem throwing some on a BLT. I brought a bag to work with me and everyone who tried it was really impressed. I’ve tried some other bacon jerky products and so far Oberto’s Bacon Jerky is hands-down the best.

It wasn’t until a couple of days later that I opened the Bacon Wallet…

Freakin’ hysterical. Oberto filled the wallet with all sorts of fun – a Bacon Driver’s License, Bacon Jerky Business Card, photobooth photos and more.

These made me actually laugh out loud.

Anyhow, Oberto wants to give one of my readers a couple of bags of Bacon Jerky. Just leave a comment here or on Twitter (@skullsandbacon) and tell me why you need this Oberto Bacon Jerky. Comments must be in by midnight EST, Tues. May 7th. Please make sure I have a way to contact you via email or twitter when making your comment, so that I can contact you in case you win. If I can’t contact you then another winner may be selected randomly.
