I love bacon, but what I read is more than a little nuts.

Yummmmmm!  It's bacon!
"Starting today, bacon-lovers can now snack on bacon throughout the day in an easy, on-the-go bacon jerky pouch," the company said in a statement. Oscar MayerBacon Jerky is available in bourbon barbecue and teriyaki ginger flavors.

The snack, made of 100% real bacon, has 11 grams of protein per serving, according to the statement.

That's the nuts part.  Not only is this fancy new product just bacon, but it will likely carry a hefty price tag, too, for anyone deciding to buy it.  From a business standpoint, it's bigger profits for something they already sell.

And what's with the flavors?  Bourbon barbeque and teriyaki?  How about just bacon-flavored?  After all, we love bacon because it tastes like bacon, right?  We add it to other foods to improve their flavor with bacon.

Bacon needs no improvement (well, lower calories and a lot less saturated fat would be nice, but I'm not that picky).  After all, it's bacon!

We don't need it flavored, jerkied, or provided in a fancy package.  We like it just as it is.

All that's needed is bacon and a pan to cook it in.  Yum.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
