Bacon is a Dad’s Best Friend

oscar-mayer-bacon-boxOscar Mayer has launched a new “Say It With Bacon” ad campaign targeted at Father’s Day shoppers. The campaign features a YouTube video where a couple goes “bacon shopping” at the “bacon store.” The bacon is displayed in jewelry boxes, and bacon is described in terminology similar to that used to describe diamonds (you know, a girl’s best friend).

The message they’re sending is one that Bacon Freak has always known: Bacon is a dad’s best friend. Umm, no duh! There’s really no need to explain how great bacon is—it’s bacon!

Oscar Mayer is building hype by making their “gift sets” limited editions, and they’re selling out on a daily basis. The idea of having a “limited edition” bacon gift that is readily available at any grocery store is kinda crazy. If you’re going to give dad bacon, go all out and give him some high quality, artisan bacon that’s unlike anything he can get at the grocery store. Bacon Freak gift bundles are always in stock and the only thing exclusive about their bacon is that you won’t find bacon this amazing anywhere else. Maybe their bacon should be “limited edition,” but it never will be.

There’s really no comparison. Which one would you rather get?

lame oscar mayer gift

Unlike Oscar Mayer’s selection, Bacon Freak has dozens of unique, subtle flavors of bacon for the true “bacon connoisseur.” In other words, every dude you know. Whether you prefer nitrite-free bacon, pepper-free bacon, sweet bacon or savory bacon flavors, Bacon Freak has it. And then some. And their gift bundles come in a sturdy, recyclable, awesomely decorated box that you would actually want to use for something else. Bacon Freak puts a lot of thought into their gift bundles and fills ‘em with only quality bacon products that dads will love.

Bacon truly is a dad’s best friend. And Bacon Freak works hard to make sure they stay best friends for life.

Bacon Wrapped You

Make your dreams come true and wrap yourself in bacon! Okay, maybe it doesn’t smell like bacon or taste like bacon, but it sure looks like bacon! We’ve written about bacon scarves before, but this one is another you just have to see to believe. Made by Natalie Luder, of Swiss nationality, these silk bacon scarves she calls Fou Lard (see play on words below) will make you salivate just looking at them. I conducted a mini-interview with her to find out more about these wonderful creations…

* Where did your inspiration come from? Are you a fellow bacon lover? First of all I must explain that bacon in Switzerland or Europe has not same meaning or symbolism as in America. I heard that calling yourself a bacon lover in America is almost a political statement, saying I enjoy bacon even it’s a nutritional sin. This is not a big topic in Switzerland. I surely do like bacon, I eat it very often since it jazzes up so many dishes. But my inspiration for the bacon scarf came from a very different angle. My work is often inspired by topics in the realm of food culture. The comparison of appearance and reality, nature and culture, as well as the discussion about good and bad taste are fascinating aspects to me. Such categories can be applied to both food and ornament. The spirit of sugar and ornament are quite similar, one pleases the eye whereas the other is a delight for the taste-buds. The large quantity of recipes available to us, tell about our highly developed and specialized sense of taste. Is there a sense in arguing about good taste?

* Why make a bacon scarf? The ambiguous question of what we find attractive or disgusting is very interesting. The preliminary work was a necklace of maggots carved from mother of pearl. In German to feel as a maggot in bacon is a metaphor for being in paradise. I wanted to show this necklace in an exhibition titled paradise. So all I needed to do was the bacon scarf. Only then I noticed that actually the French word for silk scarf “Foulard” already contains fou (insane) and bacon (lard). A foulard is a sophisticated accessory. I like the ironic twist of wearing a precious shiny silk scarf (and when you wear it you don’t really notice that it is the image of a bacon), but the image on it is checkered. Last but not least: I guarantee that the scarf is not leaving any oil stains!

* Does your creativeness continue into the kitchen? Do you have a favorite dish to cook with bacon? I do like very much to cook myself. My parents had a restaurant, so in our family food was always a big topic. I do like bacon almost best on its own. In Switzerland in many rural taverns it is very common to order a “Speckbrettli” which is finely sliced smoked bacon on a wooden board, garnished with pickled cucumbers and fresh bread on the side. Sitting in the middle of the mountains after a long days march and getting this dish is a very happy feeling.

Luckily you can purchase these beauties and have them shipped to you from Switzerland, thank goodness! The scarf is 170 US Dollars plus 15 US Dollars for packaging and shipping with priority mail. Check out more photos and details about the Fou Lard on Natalie’s site: http://www.natalieluder.ch/shop.htm .

And here’s hoping that your holiday season leaves you feeling like a maggot in bacon.

(How awesome is that wrapping??)

More bacon lollipops…and other zany things

bacon-lollipops

I don’t really know how my husband stumbled upon these delicious-looking bacon lollipops, but here they are in all their wavy glory. I’ve had this type of treat before, like the Man Bait variety. They are typically maple-flavored, because apparently people who make bacon candy have no imagination. There are two things I like about this new product from Vat19: 1) Three flavors! Of course there’s the obligatory maple, but you can also choose honey or bbq, and 2) Cool shape! Of course a bacon-filled lollipop should be wavy like a crispy strip.

So, yes, by all means go to this website and buy this candy, but while you’re there, you have to check out all the hilarious videos they’ve made to promote their products. Like the wares they’re peddling, the marketing is random and weird and highly entertaining. Our favorite was this one for the 26-pound gummy python.

Vat19.com is a great place to shop for gag gifts, stocking stuffers and, what the heck, totally unique and usable kitchen gadgets. Or a fun place to spend the afternoon getting your Internet fix. Either way, satisfaction guaranteed.
