You may have never thought to infuse bacon, caramel and bourbon into a milkshake, but I bet now that you know it exists, you’re heading to Red Robin for dinner. The chain announced that they will be offering a Beam-N-Bacon Boozy Shake which will include Jim Beam’s maple bourbon, caramel, bacon bits, vanilla ice cream, and a strip of candied bacon as a stirrer. If you want to try one of these sinful concoctions, you have until November 2nd when this limited time item will disappear.

Bacon is one of the most beautiful specimens of meat. Its taste and smell are matched only by its appearance, but Instructables user PenfoldPlant figured out how to make the breakfast treat look even more appealing by turning it into a Moebius strip. You’ll need patience and, most importantly, meat glue – the name for an enzyme called transglutaminase. Once you get the process of making the strips down, I’m pretty sure the next step is taking over the world.

Summer may be nearly over, but there’s still plenty of time to cool down with this very adult popsicle concoction. These Bacon Bloody Mary Popsicles are perhaps the greatest treat you’ll have all summer. You start by soaking the bacon in some vodka, then wrapping it around a breadstick and baking it to form the stick for your popsicle. Next you poor Bloody Mary mix into a popsicle mold, insert the bacon breadsticks and freeze overnight.

We have Canada to thank for this wonder of coffee goodness. Toronto-based Bewdly makes the beans by coating them in a maple bacon concoction and letting them soak up the flavor. You can purchase it by the pound as whole beans or pre-ground. This sounds like a brilliant combination, and it makes me more grateful than ever for our neighbors to the North.

Having just seen what’s on the menu at Brutus in Montreal, I may be booking a trip very, very soon.
This new place of your bacon dreams is the brainchild of Anthoni Jodoin, who understands that bacon really is the food of the gods and found a way to work it into everything. The food, the drinks, the donuts. Everything.
The menu boasts dishes like Jägermeister poutine, a 100% bacon sausage hot dog, bacon sushi (which is not raw bacon, I promise) and Brisures de Bacon or chocolate bacon cookies.
All I know is, I want to live there.
Head after the break to see a selection of these masterpieces.

This isn’t a prototype but an actual motorcycle commissioned by meat company Hormel and it runs on bacon grease fuel. It was featured in a documentary titled Driven by Bacon and is called the Hormel Black Label Bacon Motorcycle. The bike runs on B-100 biodiesel which is made from bacon waste and runs about $3.50 a gallon and, yes, it does leave behind the smell of bacon as you cruise down the street. They’re looking for volunteers to drive it from Austin, MN to San Diego, CA if you’re up for the job.

I can’t explain the logic behind Reebok making bacon… save for the fact that bacon is tasty, but still, this makes zero sense. Yes, Reebok makes shoes and bacon now. Deal with it, world.
Actually, the bacon is sourced by U.S. Wellness Meats, and it doesn’t have any nitrates, sweeteners or MSG and they are not cured. The bacon was passed out to folks who participated in the Reebok CrossFit Games. You probably won’t see Reebok bacon in supermarkets anytime soon, but if you’d like to learn more about it, or if you’d like to sign up for updates about where Reebok might distribute the bacon next, head on over to Reebok.com.

The Vulgar Chef strikes again.
Nick of Dude Foods has an ample amount of bacon lying around his kitchen thanks to the Farmland Bacon Club so, naturally, he incorporated that crispy pork goodness into a crazy new dish. It involves adding maple flavored bacon to some chicken wings. He tossed the bacon into a blender and then he brushed non-breaded chicken with maple syrup and crumbled all that delicious bacon on top. The result looks pretty darn tasty!

Nick of Dude Foods is constantly searching for inventive ways to combine things with bacon, and his latest creation involves wrapping grilled cheese sticks. Simply make grilled cheese sandwiches and cut them into strips, wrap pieces of bacon around the sandwich strips, and deep fry or bake them. I like the idea, but I’d rather save the time and just put my bacon on my regular grilled cheese sandwich.
