Squeez(e)* Bacon

Doesn't that just stimulate your taste buds?

ThinkGeek introduced this tasty new product today, and one of my coworkers went wild! He loves bacon, this kid. Loves it.

And since it was on one of my favorite websites, I had to check it out. I'll admit that I really only looked at the pictures. I didn't really bother reading the text because this sounds like the new Twinkie. will still be here after the nuclear holocaust. But my coworker was all set to order two bottles (tubes?).

Apparently, this Squeez(e)* Bacon was hand-crafted in Sweden by a scientific genius, in the wake of WWII. My favorite part? "Each serving is as healthy as real bacon, and equivalent to 4 premium slices of bacon!"

Product Features

* Each tube contains 21oz (595g) of Squeez(e)* Bacon®.
* 16 servings - equivalent to 64 slices of bacon!
* Bottled in Sweden, made from U.S. bred swine.
* Shelf Life of 12 years.
* No refrigeration needed.
* J├Ątte gott!

And just look at how tasty it makes this burger look!

Alas, when he clicked to order it, he got this message: "GOTCHA! This really never gets old. Happy April Fool's Day!"

I think he might cry. Right now he's curled up in a corner, rocking back and forth and mumbling to himself about those freakin' Swedes.

Happy April Fool's Day!

*Yeah, they left off the "e" at the end of squeeze and I just couldn't do it. Sorry.

Wait, so this isn't going to be at Ikea?

Kelly, you know you want some. Mmmm...just look at how it compliments that cantaloupe.

Please, Jay, now that the idea is out there, I'm guessing the Swedes are hard at work.

Oh my goodness, I can not tell you how glad I was to find out that that stuff was not a real product. *GAG*

It's not too far out there... think baconnaise meets a squeeze bottle

I'm gagging too hard to click that link. Bleh...mayo.

I can already buy most of my herbs and spices in a squeeze bottle, why not bacon?
