Wicket and I both love bacon. If you don’t like bacon, then maybe you’ve never had GOOD bacon. It’s also inspired other products on the marketplace, so I decided to try nine of them. There’s everything from jelly beans to toothpicks to bacon soap! Which one will you try first?
The lip balm is something I don’t recommend. It smells like bad pork – and tastes about the same. The bacon-inspired jelly beans aren’t bad, though! They kind of taste like pork ‘n’ beans!! The bacon floss smells like the balm, so I decided to try that out on Wicket. He seemed to like it – I think.
The bacon-flavored toothpicks… I actually needed them to get the jelly bean goo out of my teeth. Again, they smell like that nasty balm. Sadly, they taste like wood instead of bacon. What about bacon gumballs?! They don’t smell bad, so maybe… yes! They taste sort of pork-y, and close to a bacon flavor! Finally!
The bacon mints smell so bad that even Wicket wouldn’t lick them. However, I tried them. They tasted minty, believe it or not. Sadly, once I chewed it up, I tasted something other than mint – and it wasn’t something good.
That brought me to the strawberry-flavored gummy bacon. Strawberry and bacon together say what?! The smell was sort-of strawberry. But it also smelled like plastic that had been sprayed with a pork scent. It didn’t taste like anything remotely strawberry-related. It’s pretty much icky.
I think I’m definitely going to stick with real, honest-to-God bacon.
