Food of the Gods?

I know I just said that I wasn't going to type anymore because my wrist is giving me these little twinges of "I'm Not Really Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, but I Could Be If You Pushed It," but holy hell, I just clicked on this promo at the top of my gmail inbox.

Baconnaise? A quote on their website reads, "You're right, everything should taste like bacon."

I couldn't agree more.

I'm sorry, but this seriously sounds like something that I will have to start eating regularly.

And it's making me reconsider my choice not to purchase the Wake 'n Bacon Alarm Clock, which now I think I should have, too.

I am SO craving a BLT right now that it's not even funny.

Ok, Tangobaby - we are going to start following your blog. We have had you bookmarked in our favorites (that's where we put you while we check you out to see if we REALLY like you) - and we do - in fact - we LOVE you. You are so interesting - is your life really that interesting? We found you on Blogs of Note - and yes we have read through your archives. You're different - and we like that. I'll link you too - my friends will enjoy reading about your life's adventures. Keep it up!

After more than twenty years as a vegetarian, I started to eat meat three years ago. My body feels much better now. I recently had my first BLT sandwich two weeks ago. It was a sublime experience. My tastebuds rejoiced. Salty, greasy and smokey. Bacon reminds me of my childhood, having Sunday breakfast with my whole famuly at the table. What the madelaine was to Marcel Proust, bacon is to me.

I think all our lives are interesting if we take the time to really examine the little details.

Like that post. Who could write complete sentences about a deathlike craving for bacon? I don't personally like pork (*gasp* heresy), but this is just so lively, so intriguing, so...tangobaby. I'm more on the beef side - Texan heritage. :D

And here I was lamenting having to give up wasabi mayonnaise for my waistline. I am going to have a private taster read your blog before I come here. It's a matter of survival now. =0)

Oh, and this...

Eternal Lizdom December 30, 2008 at 2:38 AM  

I guess I'm the odd man out... I think it sounds kinda scarey!

Amanda December 30, 2008 at 4:34 AM  

Eeew. Oddly interesting. Strangely curious. I want to know how it it.

AssertiveWit December 30, 2008 at 5:23 AM  

that sounds weird but I kinda wanna try it now...LOL

When asked several years ago what my favorite food was, my immediate- as in split second- reply was bacon. I love bacon and I love mayonnaise-and I eat them together. I need baconnaise. I must have it. Seriously.

If this could be exported to Ukraine, someone would make tons of money......

Cynthia Pittmann December 30, 2008 at 6:07 AM  

Really! You know they make vegetarian bacon! Eweu! (note, that is suppose to be a word for being "grossed-out") No, I'm not a fan of bacon but love the BLT-minus the B. Now I know why some of the blogs I click on are writing about bacon...and I don't think it's the advert-it's you,the influential tangobaby. You know I've heard that this house, I live in once housed pigs-it's a converted barn. I wonder if there spirits are here to haunt me in the form of the blog...they're entering the computer...they're entering...got to go!

Me and my husband play the "there's-NOTHING-that-doesn't-go-with-BACON" game. Can you think of anything that wouldn't go with it? I've thought of a few but not many. Ice Cream for example. But then again...

So intrigued by your comment to Willow about spirit photography. Do you know who the curator was?Several years ago there was a terrific exhibit at the Metropolitan here in NYC featuring just that. The curator ( Pierre Apraxine)got a "glowing" review in The Times, and so many buffs were attracted, both of photography, and ghosts.
My blog speaks for itself!

BLT's are my fave! I have to have a Bacon sandwich at least once a week.

robin laws December 30, 2008 at 7:59 AM  

you make me laugh...and you cause me to be wandering all over the crazy person's section of the food network when i should be working!

d smith kaich jones December 30, 2008 at 8:12 AM  

Well, I admit to loving a good BLT, and even just a good LT, but no way, no how could I bring myself to try this stuff. You are a brave woman.

wonder if carl sagan already knew
about the 'Baconaise'?

Char December 30, 2008 at 9:08 AM  

whoa....that is a bit scary, but why should I be scared when I sometimes eat the ranch dressing with the bacon bits in it. But a BLT yum!!!

tim December 30, 2008 at 11:08 AM  

Sounds like a conspiracy to me...taking the B out of B.L.T., bread will next. :>) Tom

Vanessa December 30, 2008 at 12:37 PM  

Friends don't let friends incorporate bacon into everything. So-

Nooo, Tangobaby. Step away from the Baconaise!

~DokterKenny December 30, 2008 at 3:26 PM  

Does it come with Defibrillator paddles?

Sabrina December 30, 2008 at 7:50 PM  

I'm hoping that you've seen the SNL Mayosturd and Mustardayonaise fake commercials...if not, go check Youtube. :)

christina December 31, 2008 at 11:20 AM  

Heee... this is adorable. I think I may love this. ; )

I got hooked by the ad. I bought myself some Baconnaise. I looked at the jar when it arrived (I live in Europe), saw that it was both vegetarian and kosher, and thought "oh, oh." And I was right. The stuff is just as dreadful as you would think if you were told that someone has produced vegetarian bacon. It is greasy and doesn't taste like bacon at all. Be warned!
