Bacon craze jumps the shark

greygarious Jun 29, 2010 11:53 AM


The sight of colored bacon is actually horrible enough that I'm not going to be interested in regular bacon for some time to come. I imagine small kids will pester their parents for it.
I know they came out with green ketchup a few years back but never noticed it in the supermarket so I don't know if it caught on or is still made.

    i agree, that is extremely unappetizing!

      Oh yes, if ONLY parents could get their kids to eat more bacon. You know kids: they gobble the veggies, but not the bacon.

          That's really really close to being the funniest thing I've ever seen.

          This, however, is one of the coolest things I've ever seen.


          In the right context, I guess I totally dig lots of artificial colors. But yeah, not in bacon. Not so much.

            That is just nasty looking. And a huge insult to the pig.

              Right? I like the post below it though. Nature knows fatty pork is beautiful the way it is.

              As someone commented in the blog thread, "just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD." There is seriously something wrong with some people. And the comments are the best thing about that entire article!

              "If you have a problem getting your children to eat bacon, then you need new kids."

              "This is bloody stupid, why ruin something so good?"

              "Pass, and thanks for playing “what stupid $&#! can we do to food items today?”

              And "What would this do to poops?"
