"Mmmm. Smell that? It’s the scent of bacon mania. There are bacon blogs, bacon cookbooks, bacon-scented air fresheners, bacon tweets and a book entitled Bacon, A Love Story. “Bacon Butties” has more than 500,000 fans on Facebook. “Bacon mania” even has its own Wikipedia entry.
"Bacon has wound its way into desserts. It is now vogue to match savory bacon with sweet dishes. There are bacon cookies, brownies and cupcakes; bacon cakes, pies and bread pudding; bacon ice cream, milkshakes and truffles; bacon chocolate bars, jellybeans and, yes, bacon baklava."
This “Bacon Meme” is pretty crazy. We know it’s not for everyone, but boy, Bacon sure has found a home in a great many hearts (and mouths). We’re just glad we could be a part of it.
And the resulting increase in BBB’s traffic:
A great big bacony “Thank You” to all of our regular followers! We’re glad you enjoy the bacon, too!
… as representative of the “the bizarre Internet meme centered on borderline cult worship of bacon”.
Hey, we am what we am.
