Bacon ... gum?
When it comes to all things bacon, I'm like that dog in those Beggin Strips commercials.
Well, maybe I should say most things bacon.
So when Former Roommate Patchen brought me a box of Uncle Oinker's Gummy Bacon, I was beside myself.
Bacon gum? I'm kind of morbidly fascinated with it.
Thankfully, this gum doesn't try to taste like bacon -- at least, according to the box, it's strawberry-flavored. I haven't tried it yet (because I'm milking it for two blog entries).
There are four "slices" of the stuff in the box. It certainly ain't sugar free, either. Each slice has more than 50 calories. But, if Uncle Oinker eats it, so will I ...
I love the panel on the back, which has "Safe Handling Instructions:
"Keep in cool, dry place away from sunlight, high temperatures & humidity (and don't feed after midnight). Do not attempt to fry or microwave!"
I love how the box has to tell you not to microwave it. Frying strawberry-flavored, bacon-shaped gum would definitely be the worst part of waking up. Where was it made? I'll give you one guess. Have you guessed it yet? China, of course.
I'm gonna try this stuff today. Wish me luck.
