What is it about gamers and bacon? Mention it mid-raid and everyone pauses, as if for a moment of tributary silence. Fry up a couple of rashers and you’ll find players who haven’t seen the light of day all month standing at your kitchen window, inhaling the fumes.
I didn’t have time to write a post for the weekend and so instead, I beg your forgiveness with this bacon offering – the best bacon on the web. Here are my top ten bacon links, with an extra two because honestly – can you ever have too much bacon?
Warning: simply viewing the photographs on the following links may cause your arteries to clog. You think I’m kidding, don’t you …
These are the most amazing bacon meals and treats that I could find. All of them can either be purchased online with express delivery or, even better, easily recreated at home. Go on, I dare you!

It’s the Real Thing
On a diet? Maybe Coke will take the hint and run with this great idea for a new flavor:
MySpace.com – diet coke with bacon
The Coca-Cola company is now testing its latest extension to the brand — Diet Coke with Bacon in test markets across the world including the UK, China, Australia and Africa. Starting April 21, Americans in Los Angeles will be able to be the first to try Coca-Cola with Bacon and Diet Coke with Bacon.
For the Vegetarians
Or maybe there’s no real substitute for bacon.
Once I got home and opened my tofu bacon strips, I was even more hesitant to make this whole meal and be disappointed in the texture and the taste of the tofu bacon. Seriously, look at it… It looks like a fruit rollup and smells like a chemical version of paprika.
How Deep is Your Love
I know for a fact that neither my son nor my boyfriend would even think of getting one of these.

I don’t get it: I love bacon, and I love boobs, but something about this image made me want to hide under the bed and weep into my Pokemon blanket.

It’s the only love that is true.
Take your love of bacon everywhere with you.
For your cellphone, your portable gaming system… or anything else you can dangle stuff from. Hooray!
Someone has to try it, right?
This started a conversation on the power of bacon in-which it was able to make everything it came in contact with taste better. Whether it’s a filet wrapped in bacon, bacon on salads, pizza, or sandwiches it’s always that much better with bacon. We wondered if it was possible that any other foods had this special property. Someone quickly identified chocolate as a food with similar complimentary properties.
Leave it to the Professionals
Is it safer to to try the commercial version? I’m not convinced.
Breathe…engage your five senses, close your eyes and inhale deeply. Be in the present moment, notice the color of the chocolate, the glossy shine. Rub your thumb over the chocolate bar to release the aromas of smoked applewood bacon flirting with deep milk chocolate. Snap off just a tiny piece and place it in your mouth, let the lust of salt and sweet coat your tongue.
This is just getting weird now.
While we admit that it’s pretty far from the norm (it’s definitely not kosher!), once you make that initial leap of faith and try it out, we’re positive that you’ll love it. The salty chunks of bacon make a delicious and unique counterpoint to the subtle sweetness of the maple, and oh, yeah- you’ll be eating an oh-my-god bacon lollipop!
I don’t even want to think about the leftovers.
It all started with a dream…and a whole bunch of bacon. Five pounds of bacon to be exact. For some variety we used three types of bacon, including Rocco’s Country Peppered Bacon for the decorative topping.
We used a 15 pound turkey, a small duck, and a pre-cut whole chicken. We consulted the internet for a turducken recipe and hoped for the best.
Actually, I might try this one.
I admit, I can’t remember the singular event that conspired to the creation of this bacon vodka. It came to life this Christmas and found home in a tasting kit of vodkas I made for friends and family. If you have time, bacon and vodka, you too can have this tasty elixir in your hands.
Light the BBQ
I don’t think my grill is big enough.
The other day the guys from BaconToday.com contacted me in search for some barbecue bacon recipes. Of course I have plenty of great uses for bacon in a barbecue pit, but the longer I thought about it, the more I wanted to step it up a notch and clog a few arteries for those guys. Behold, BACON EXPLOSION!!! Here’s what you’ll need…
2 pounds thick cut bacon
2 pounds Italian sausage
1 jar of your favorite barbeque sauce
1 jar of your favorite barbeque rub
