A while ago I noted the appearance of a bacon chocolate bar, and I ate it. Today I am recognizing the existence of gummy bacon – a gift from J – but I’m not actually going to try it. Not because it’s gummy or because it contains titanium dioxide, actually I’m not going to eat this, not even in the name of science, because it’s artificial strawberry flavored. Yech. Nonetheless, the packaging is super cool, and in this day of swine flu anxiety, maybe the world needs more fake bacon.
