Effervescent Bacon Drink Tablets

Effervescent Bacon Drink Tablets -$3.50 Bacon Drink Tablets

Even I think that the bacon madness may have gone a little too far with this but…it is kinda cool in a weird novelty way. I’m pretty sure the people at Archie McPhee are high all the time, you need to be to think up things like this. If you drop one of these magic tablets into a glass of water it will instantly begin to dissolve, creating a cascade of bubbles that will infuse the water with a delicious bacon flavor. They say they work just as well in milk or juice but that’s kinda gross. Each tin contains about fifteen tablets.

Thanksgiving Gumballs – $3.50Thanksgiving Gumballs

There’s no bacon in these Thanksgiving gumballs but I think they’re neat although I don’t expect them to be that tasty. They remind me of the three-course dinner gum from Willy Wonka although I hope these don’t require a trip to the Juicing Room. Each tin contains about twenty-two gumballs in the classic flavors of Thanksgiving – turkey, cranberry and pumpkin pie. While we’re on the subject, scientists are working on gum that would taste like a three-course mean. For realz.

In other exciting bacon news, a few weeks ago, I was checking out an amazing looking recipe for Praline Bacon Ice Cream on the excellent ice cream blog, Scoop Adventures. Ice cream maker extraordinaire, Lindsay, made some for the Bacon Takedown in New Orleans.

She was also giving away 10 pounds of bacon from Hormel and an awesome Bacon Takedown apron. I entered and actually WON! I’ve been handing out free bacon to friends and family and the Bacon Takedown apron looks great hanging in my kitchen. Thanks so much to Lindsay and please check out her blog, it’s got some really interesting ice cream concoctions!

I’ll be on vacation in L.A. starting later this week and my goal is to find the Lardon Bacon Truck. Wish me luck!

Bacon Table Lamp

Wandering around today, I ran across this amazing Bacon Lamp ($35.00). Made of archival ink and paper, the bacon looks great in the daylight but this lamp really comes to life with it’s bacony glow.

The only other bacon lamp I’ve seen was made out of real bacon and, well, while that’s cool, it’s not very practical, is it?

The artist, Monica (czechpub on Etsy), also has a really great Skeleton Lamp for sale.

Check out her other lamps and she takes custom orders as well; the possibilities are titillating!

The United States of Skulls & Bacon

Destination America ?channel has a new show that is all bacon, all the time. Chef Todd Fisher takes viewers on a bacony trip around the country with the “United States of Bacon.”

The show premiered Dec. 30th and if you missed it you can still catch it in re-runs. On my cable provider, Optimum, Destination America is on channel 172. You can use the channel finder on the website to find it in your area. ?

I am very excited about this show because, other than the obvious, my little old Skulls & Bacon logo will be making a brief appearance in the upcoming episode!

Airing on Jan 6th, a t-shirt incorporating the Skulls&Bacon logo is given away as a prize during a bacon trivia contest at the Diesel Filling Station, in Atlanta, GA.

I’ve already got my DVR set. Anyone gonna watch this with me?

P.S. I can never give enough props to TS Rogers from Teaessare Illustration & Design for birthing my lovely skull and cross-bacon logo!
