Can You Wrap Yourself in Bacon When You Die?
The geniuses that brought you baconnaise and bacon salt are now giving you the option of wrapping yourself in bacon when you die.
It's true. There are now bacon coffins. It's not actually made of bacon, but rather a coffin painted to look like a pound of bacon. With the recent explosion in bacon related products, I'm really not shocked that someone came up with this idea.
According to the website, the bacon coffin is for "those who love bacon to death". The product description says that it's made of, "18 Gauge Gasketed Steel with Premium Bacon Exterior/Interior, and includes a Memorial and Record Tube, Adjustable Bed and Mattress and Stationary and Swingbar handles. It also includes a bacon air freshener for when you get that buried-underground, not-so-fresh feeling."
While you're still above ground, there are numerous bacon related recipes out there. Click HERE for some of my favorites. If you're a Bloody Mary fan, here is my recipe for a BLT Bloody Mary.
You will need:
Tall glass, ice, lime, bacon bits, V8, vodka, romaine lettuce, strip of cooked thick cut pepper bacon and Tabasco sauce (optional).
Rim glass with lime and bacon bits. Fill glass half way with ice. Pour in 1.5 ounces of vodka, and fill with V8. Finish with a few shakes of Tobasco to spice it up. Use bacon strip to mix and leave it in the glass for a vodka soaked meat treat. Cut lettuce halfway up the leaf and place on rim of glass as garnish.
