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."

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.

Sur La Table has a few really cool, unique skull items that I've got my panties in a bunch over.

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...

Skull-and-Crossbones Spatula - $8.95Skull Spatula

Skull Grip Potholders (Set of Two) - $9.95Skull Potholders

All of these items are a worthy addition to my already skull-crowded kitchen.

Jones Bacon Soda

Even though Geekologie says it tastes like vomit, I'd still have to try it.

Endless Simmer tried it also, at the 2010 Food Fete, and says it tastes "impressively like the real thing".

It's not out yet but fingers crossed it's coming soon.

Back To Skull

I like the idea here although I'm not so sure that bringing these dollar store skeletons to school would be what the teachers are expecting.
