Bacon Paradise tonight on the Travel Channel

Happy Thanksgiving! In anticipation of the Turbaconducken you may be savoring tomorrow, the Travel Channel is airing “Bacon Paradise” tonight at 10 E/P. In this episode, they will take you on a journey to find America’s ultimate “bacon paradise” at some of our country’s best pig-out spots.

Here are the places they visit:

All Good Cafe: In Dallas, the All Good Cafe is home to the thickest, tastiest, crispiest peppered bacon on the planet. This infamous diner offers great food, a low-key atmosphere, and the perfect spot to catch the hottest local bands. Before even walking through the door, patrons can smell bacon and are quickly reminded of their mother’s home-style cooking.

Slater’s 50/50: Located near Disneyland in Anaheim, California, Slater’s 50/50 may just be the second happiest place on earth. Their 50/50 burger patties are 50% ground beef and 50% bacon- the perfect combination for any bacon burger lover! This neighborhood establishment even serves bacon milkshakes and bacon brownies for dessert.

Restaurant 3: This is the “house that bacon built”, with a menu focusing specifically on the sensational treat. In Arlington, Virgina, Restaurant 3 is a palace of pork inspired by southern-style cooking. This hog heaven features everything from Bleu Cheese Chips with bacon and Bacon Stuffed Pork Chops to a Bacon Studded Waffle and Maple Bacon Ice Cream.

The Lido Deck: The Lido Deck is an ocean-side bacon paradise located in Newport Beach, California. When visiting, expect a bacon-centric dining experience featuring wild bore bacon. The restaurant’s owners believe in letting the meat speak for itself, so they’ve figured out a new way to flavor bacon and have it melt in the customer’s mouth. What could be better than enjoying delicious bacon with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean?

Bad Decisions: Have you ever been to a bacon and beer happy hour? Once a month in Baltimore, Maryland, 350 bacon lovers come together in the name of bacon. Each patron receives a bowl of bacon to munch on while enjoying their drinks. From bacon candy to bacon kabobs, this Baltimore hot spot is a guilty pleasure to hundreds of bacon enthusiasts.

Hash House A Go Go: Hash House A Go Go is a Southern California brunch staple. This San Diego hot spot serves up behemoth portions of both breakfast favorites and bizarre concoctions featuring honey, hickory smoked bacon. One of their most popular breakfast dishes, the bacon waffle, has eight full pieces of bacon baked right into the waffle- a perfect salty and sweet combination!

Marini’s at the Beach: This Willy Wonka-type boardwalk stop opened 95 years and and is now a Santa Cruz staple. From their enormous selection of savory treats, Marini’s is loved by many for their chocolate covered bacon. Invented by Joe Marini himself, this carnivorous candy has been fulfilling beach-goers' sweet and savory cravings for almost an entire century.

Crystal Skull Earbud Headphones

These fabulous rhinestone skull earbuds are so cool, I had to pick up a pair from At only $11.99, I can't vouch for the sound quality, but who cares? I'll have skulls in my ears on my way to work!

Nemo Crystal Skull Earbud Headphones - $11.99
Nemo Crystal Skull (Silver with Black Wires) Earbud Headphones

Not that I need any more skull stuff. I just got back from my first trip to L.A., which was absolutely amazing. On a good tip from a friend, we made a stop at Olvera Street where they were celebrating Dia De Los Muertos. There were so many merchants selling skulls that I pretty much lost my mind for a while. Seriously, at one point I was completely overwhelmed and unsure of what to do next. I was on a limited budget and really trying to pace myself. In the end, I only picked up a skull hat, skull earrings, handpainted skull matches, a Day of the Dead wedding statue and an awesome tin wall hanging with two flying skeletons around a flaming heart.

Here's some pics, even though they don't do justice to the experience. If you're around Los Angeles, I highly recommend visiting Olvera Street.

Jones Bacon Soda is available!

Back in September, I warned you that Jones Soda was coming out with Bacon Soda. It made it's appearance a few days ago and even my mom has emailed me about it.

J&D's and Jones has teamed up and are offering the Bacon Soda as part of a gift pack with only two sodas. I'm not sure why you can't buy the soda separately and it looks like it probably won't make it into the stores. That said, the J&D’s Bacon Jones Soda Gift Pack is pretty cool and only $9.99.

J&D's Bacon Jones Soda Gift pack

You can pick up the gift pack at either J&D's Store or from Jones Soda.

Included is:
Two bottles of Bacon Soda
One bag of Cheddar BaconPOP
One packet of J&D's Country Style Bacon Gravy
J&D’s Bacon Lip Balm $ 9.99

J&D's Bacon Jones Soda Gift Pack

I figure I'll try one of the soda's and keep the other on my bacon paraphernalia shelf. I'll let you know how it tastes once I get it! Truthfully, I'm a little scared but excited at the same time.

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 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!

More Skulls Than You Can Shake A Fist At

It's been way too long since I've been able to get a post up and the skulls have been piling up. I'm completely out of money to buy more skull things yet I can't pass them up. I'm thinking of selling a kidney or something to scrape up some dough.

Grandin Road has the swankiest Halloween Skulls. The skull window panel is to die for and the skull tablecloth and pillows are fabulous.

Bunch O' Bacon Links

Keeping you abreast of this week's bacon news!

J&D Foods, of Bacon Salt and Baconnaise fame, have commissioned an artist to make a life-size bust of Kevin Bacon entirely out of bacon. The bust is being auctioned off on Ebay starting today and the proceeds go to charity. "Bacon Kevin Bacon has been well-lacquered and will stay tasty for generations to come."

Batter Blaster to Launch Bacon Pancakes In an Aerosol Can.


Killer Burger in Portland, OR, opens their doors with their Peanut-Butter-Pickle-Bacon-Burger, a sweet-and-savory peanut-butter-pickle-bacon concoction, which smears a sweet housemade peanut sauce on top of a dill pickle. I'd try it!


The Bacon Tattoo trend keeps chugging along with this masterpiece.

If you're in my area and looking for a place to imbibe and snarf some bacon, The Whiskey Brooklyn has a "Bowl O' Bacon" on the menu.


IHOP jumps on the bacon-bandwagon with their new Bacon 'N Beef Burgers. The Bacon 'N Beef Cheeseburger, Bacon 'N Beef Bacon & Egg Cheeseburger, Bacon 'N Beef Bacon Cheeseburger, Bacon 'N Beef Mega Mushroom Burger and Monster Bacon 'N Beef Cheeseburger have hickory-smoked bacon blended right into the beef so there's delicious with bacon flavor in every bite.


Sending hate packages of bacon to American mosques is not an acceptable use of bacon.

Skulls @ Target - Halloween 2010

Man, I have been trying to get this post up all week but I am in serious skull shopping overload and now completely broke. Went to my local Target on Sunday and picked up TONS of new stuff. The shelves were a little bare so I'm not sure if they were ransacked before I got there or if they were still putting stuff out. One things for sure, Target's halloween stuff is going quick. Quite a few of the items I wanted to post for you guys are already out of stock online.

This skull candy dish is my pick of the year from Target but it's only sold online. Fortunately, they have a great free shipping offer on a lot of the halloween items right now if you spend $50.00.

Lardon - L.A.'s All Bacon Food Truck!

I can't believe it actually took this long for it to happen, but the wait is over...America now has an all bacon food truck! Lardon is roaming around Los Angeles, CA starting today and it's not so coincidental that I'm taking a vacation to L.A. in October.

Lardon - all Bacon Food Truck

I'm pretty tempted to steal that truck and drive it right to NYC, eating up all of the bacon goodies on the way.

In the meantime, if you're in their area, you should follow Lardon on Twitter and Facebook for their latest whereabouts. And check out their menu!

I'll take a Brioche French Toast Sandwich with Bacon Bourbon Maple Syrup and crumbled bacon, some Chicken Wings Covered in Bacon Hot Sauce with hot sauce-covered bacon served with Bacon Blue Cheese Dipping Sauce, a Bacone and a couple of brownies from Lark Cake Shop, topped with bacon Nutella spread for dessert.

*Sigh* vacation can't get here soon enough.

You have no idea how excited I am over this black Skull Dish Brush with rhinestone eyes. Seems silly, right? But seriously, finding this just made my day. I'm buying two - one to use and one to keep all pretty like. Yes, a dish brush. I know, I know...
