We <3 bacon

bakon vodka

I can't get enough of bacon. Baconbaconbaconbacon. We've discussed it quite a bit on Midnight Sun. Now, let's discuss it some more. Here's Owl Meat with a roundup of several scrumptious-sounding bacon delights.

When did bacon become a religion? Bacon vodka, bacon ice cream, bacon chocolate, bacon chewing gum. Bacon bacon bacon.

Bakon Vodka has some recipes that sound a little perverse but a little awesome too. Bakon vodka in a bloody Mary sounds good. Bakon vodka and scotch? That sounds good too. A bacon vodka chocolate martini? Yeah! 

In other bacon news, this bacon kills terrorists.

If only bacon could drive you to the liquor store. Your wish has been granted. Here's an article about a car that runs on bacon grease ...

It's the biofuel of choice for a pair of entrepreneurs building their business on pig fat. Founded in 2005 by married couple Dan and Tracy Kaderabek, Bio-Blend Fuels has a three-acre processing plant in Manitowoc, Wisconsin. "The pork gets run through microwaves to make precooked bacon, the grease falls off and that's what we use," Dan tells the Manitowoc Herald Reporter. "Americans' bad eating habits ensure our supply."

Imagine driving behind a bacon-powered car.

Bakon vodka is available in ten states, the closest being New York. Has anyone tried it? Maybe if we appeal to the spirit of Flying Pig, Maryland will be blessed with this porcine elixir. Hey, hey, hey.

Bacon is one of those things that got really trendy and worn out. I still like it but it's getting old.

jerbear - where & when was it tready?

I think bacon is like sex. Wait for it. It's on my mind all the time, but it's probably not the best way to spend all your free time. Plus sex and bacon and fairly mutually exclusive, so one will balance out your obsession with the other. Of course bacon vodka probably only encourages pork-fueled libidos.

Seriously? Hipsters have been putting bacon in everything for at least the past several years.

I'm still waiting for my proposed Bacon Vodka Vapor House
