Suck On These…

Bacon candies!

What did you think I meant?  REALLY?!? That’s what you thought? Get your mind out of the gutter.

Anywho, the fine folks at Archie McPhee have done it again.  There is nothing they won’t make taste like bacon!

From their site:

These red and white striped hard candies look just like the ones that grandma used to put in her fancy candy dish for the holidays. But, my oh my, would grandma be in for a surprise if she popped one in her mouth!

Oh my indeed.

$5.95 for a tin with about 12 pieces of candy.

Plop, Plop, Fizz, Fizz…Some Bacon for your Water?

Over the last three weeks I have received an abundance of bacon related news.  Thank you to ALL of you for your submissions.

This week and next, I’m lookin’ to catch up by lettin’ the world (or in the case of this blog – my 10′s of readers) share in all this bacon glory fillin’ my mailbox.

First – from our friends at Archie McPhee

Why not pork up your water with these effervescent bacon drink tabs?
When I first saw this a few weeks ago I knew it would be going on the holiday list for Santa but…after my experience with the bacon soda I just don’t know if I can “swallow” this (literally and figuratively).  Novelty be damned.
If you are feelin’ the need, they’re only $3.50 over at While you are there, pick yourself up some giant underwear ;-)
