Perhaps the toughest thing about life is not having ready access to bacon — either you're away from the kitchen, or your favorite brunch spot, and you get a craving that you just can't satisfy. Now, you could always have a supply of bacon on-hand, but that's messy, and hardly practical. But with Go Bacon, you can have bacon at your fingertips, in the form of delicious bacon jerky. Held in a portable four-by-six-inch resealable package, Go Bacon fits perfectly in the pocket of your pants or jacket, so it can go anywhere you do. Each package contains one-and-a-half ounces of premium, jerkied bacon, available in either original or a spicy sriracha flavor. Bacon lovers, rejoice.
As hard as it is to admit it, there are more options out there than standard American Bacon when you're looking for your pork fix — with Bacons of the World ($300), you get all the bacon this great nation has to offer, plus a few bonuses. With your purchase, you'll receive quarterly shipments of five pounds each, made up of half American Bacon, and half a second type. You'll get Guanciale, unsmoked Italian pig cheek; English Bacon, smoked loin with belly attached; Pancetta, the Italian cousin of American Bacon; and Holiday Bacon, a specially seasoned version of American Bacon.
Your bologna has a first name (it's O-S-C-A-R), so your bacon certainly shouldn't remain nameless. Treat yourself to the gift of bacon with the Oscar Mayer Bacon Gift Box Collection ($22-$28). Or, you could always drop subtle hints to your loved one ("Yeah, that was great, but it would have been better with bacon"). These elegant boxed sets come with your choice of bacon-themed cufflinks, a multitool, or a money clip — and of course a package of delicious, naturally-hardwood-smoked bacon.
It's hardly a secret that we have a bit of a taste for bacon — call it an obsession if you want. So, we were pretty excited when we found out that the mad culinary scientists at the Baconery had combined the awesomeness of bacon, the deliciousness of chocolate, and the luxury of gold to make 23k Gold Chocolate Bacon ($40). It's made with Nueske's Cherrywood Bacon, Guittard Semi-Sweet Dark Chocolate, and 23k edible gold flakes. Put it on a sandwich, eat it with your eggs, we don't care. Just don't let it go to waste.
