Whether you're a vegetarian looking for a cheap meat replacement or just a typical foodie, there's a lot to like in the Portobello Mushroom Growing Kit ($50). Ready to harvest in just three to four weeks, these tasty 'shrooms can be grown indoors — as long as you have a spot in your house that stays around 63-68° — right in their shipping container. Surpassed in coolness only by the mythical Psilocybin Mushroom Growing Kit.
Getting ready for movie night at home? You may not be able to beat the local cineplex's huge screen or THX-certified sound system, but you can best them on drinks and snacks, starting with Bacon Pop ($12/3 boxes). From the same great minds that brought you Baconnaise and Bacon Salt comes this microwaveable bacon-flavored popcorn, with just the right hint of butter and outstanding real bacon taste. Grab your favorite beer, sit down in your own recliner, and enjoy.
Times have definitely changed since the first Thanksgiving, but you can still get a taste of the frontier life with a Good Shepherd Heritage Turkey ($120-$200). Grown on an open range using vegetarian feed, these birds are raised to the American Poultry Association's Standards of Perfection, on farms that are the first to receive the Animal Welfare Institute's Animal Welfare Approved certification. Oh yeah: we hear they're pretty damn tasty, too. [Thanks, James]
If your stockpile of Baconnaise is running low, add some Bacon Jam ($17) to your bacon shopping list. (Because by now you should have one list just for bacon items and one list for food.) Bacon Jam is pure spreadable heaven. Works great on burgers, texas toast, and any sandwich that needs some lovin'.
Like bacon with your pancakes? How about bacon in your pancakes? Mo's Bacon Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix ($14) offers exactly that, mixing tasty buttermilk pancake mix with Vosges Chocolates' delectable Mo Bacon Bar chips. Finally, a good reason to wake up early. [Thanks, Fernando]
