If you’re a foodie, you’ve probably heard by now that bacon makes everything better.  It might also be fair to assume that you personally agree with the sentiment.  However, as is true with most things in life, too much bacon can be nauseating.  Or in the case of these five products, potentially awesome or just downright weird.

5. Bakon Vodka

Taking shots of this might not prove to be the best way to start your night, but mixing this into a savory-tasting drink — like a Bloody Mary — could prove to be quite delicious.  Although they use Tito’s vodka infused with real bacon cracklings, I think Frank’s Red-Headed Stranger is a good indication of how successful such a combination can be.

4. Boca Java‘s Maple Bacon Morning Coffee

This coffee is infused with the “home-cooked flavor of sweet maple and smoky bacon.”  I’m guessing this might smell better than it tastes.  The concept behind this was to recreate the aroma of a “hearty Saturday morning breakfast.”  I love me some pancakes, bacon and eggs for breakfast, but sometimes coffee just tastes better without the added flavor of cured meats.  However, the blend is rated four and a half stars (out of five) by Boca Java’s customers, so perhaps it’s worth checking out?

3. Effervescent Bacon Drink Tablets

Now you can add bacon flavor to anything.  Flavor your water, the milk in your cereal, soda, juice and hell — even your bathwater — with these Alka Seltzer-esque tablets.  Yum?

2. Bacon-flavored Lip Balm

My question is, would I be doomed to experience hunger pangs all day long?

1. Bacon-scented Soap

I’m not quite sure why anyone would want to smell like bacon after showering — isn’t the point of bathing to rid yourself of the scent of cooked meat?  Guys: using this before a first date is not recommended.  Unless the girl is a raging vegetarian and you want to gross and freak her out simultaneously.
