Bacon Soda?

I love bacon. My husband loves bacon. Pretty much everyone I know loves bacon. It’s a frequent ingredient in my cooking, for everything from the normal to the not-so-normal (see Bacon Maple Cookies). And I love experimenting with those not-so-normal ideas for bacon. There’s a recipe idea that’s been kicking around in my brain for a few weeks now that I can’t wait to make and post.

Until then, here’s a not-so-normal bacon idea that I just have to share.

Check out this Holiday Bacon Soda Gift Pack from Jones Soda. Yep, you read that right – BACON SODA. I don’t know about this one. I love bacon, but I’m not sure about a bacon flavored soda. Could you drink it?

Along with 2 bottles of Bacon Soda, the gift pack also includes:

  • 1 Tube of Bacon Lip Balm
  • 1 Package of Bacon Popcorn
  • 1 Package of Bacon Gravy Mix

I could definitely see the Bacon Popcorn and Gravy Mix being awesome, but that lip balm has me scratching my head too. Could I stand having bacon-flavored lips? That might be a little weird.

Yet I love the novelty of this whole package. I think it would be such a fun gift to give to a bacon lover for Christmas. Plus, it’s only $9.99. I’m just sad that we aren’t participating in any White Elephant gift exchanges this Christmas. I’d have at least one gift done!
