You’ve probably had bacon on your pizza, but now Little Caesars is wrapping bacon around your pizza. This limited-time offering is a regular deep-dish pizza with 3.5 feet of bacon wrapped around the crust. From USA Today:
“Every time you take a bite out of the crust, you’ll get bacon,” says David Scrivano, CEO at Little Caesars. The pizza also comes with pepperoni and has bacon sprinkled on top. The promotion replaces the chain’s Soft Pretzel Crust Pizza.
Now, all you have to do is order your bacon-wrapped pizza with extra bacon topping and your heart attack for dinner will be complete.
This meal masquerading as a bacon sriracha cronut was made by the mad scientists ad DK’s Donuts of Orange in California. The taste is something you won’t soon forget according to 7 Deadly who notes:
However, the first bite makes it clear that the cronut-gimmick is merely a vehicle for the punch-in-the-face flavors of the thick Sriracha glaze and generous amount of candied bacon sprinkled on top.
If you’re looking for something “delicate,” this is not the donut for you. This savory behemoth is a Sriracha-soaked, protein-packed meal that just happens to be on a cronut-like pastry. There’s a faint hint of sugar from the dough, but that quickly gets lost as the spicy, meaty heat overwhelms every square centimeter of your tongue.

This would surely make cronut creator Dominique Ansel cry.

If you’ve ever lost the lottery, then you know what it’s like to spend your hard-earned cash on disappointment and an utterly worthless piece of paper. However, New Hampshire is attempting to tackle this problem, and reel in some new business, by exploiting one of the world’s greatest weaknesses: delicious bacon.
The state’s new “I Heart Bacon” scratch tickets offer a chance at $1,000 and reward you with the smell of smoked meat whether you win or lose. Although they normally cost a buck, you can get free tickets and slices of bacon by visiting the Verizon Wireless Arena in Manchester today, the Cumberland Farms on Main Street in Keene on Jan. 23, the Durham Marketplace on Jan. 24 or the Hooksett Welcome Centers on Jan. 30.

What makes this dish astounding is that it isn’t the familiar batter waffle covered with pulled pork, but a waffle MADE of pulled pork. It’s the creation of the aptly named The Vulgar Chef and he topped off the waffle with a scoop of macaroni and cheese and a nice sprinkling of bacon bits. Call him crazy, but this might be just the thing to help cure that New Year’s Eve hangover you’re experiencing right now.
Do you ever have dreams about cured meat? We won’t judge. If you don’t and you’d like to, this bacon scented pillowcase from J&D Foods might do the trick. As long as you follow the care instructions that come with the pillowcase, the delicious smell of bacon should last for 6-12 months.
The scent will supposedly endure through wash cycles, and since the bacon smell will probably make you drool all over your pillowcase, you’ll need to wash it frequently.

…and I’m just talking about the picture. Nevermind actually trying one.
The mad culinary scientists over at Philadelphia’s PYT restaurant are at it again. Known for creating strange burger monstrosities (like the Fried Chicken and Beer Burger), they recently created a very different sort of edible experiment: the Bacon Mac & Cheese Donut. It’s a glazed doughnut that’s packed with bacon, macaroni and tons of cheese, with a little extra bacon sprinkled on top. I’m honestly very tempted right now to try and eat my computer screen.
Just look at this. LOOK AT IT!
This recipe for a Bacon Mac ‘n’ Cheese Quesadilla is pretty simple to follow, and it yields six servings in less than 35 minutes. But just a heads up: it actually calls for 2 pounds of bacon, a half pound of elbow macaroni and a whole mess of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. Not exactly healthy, but we’re okay with that.
