slice of raw bacon

The internet loves bacon according to an article on MSN. And I have to agree. I spend probably too much time on the internet and, over the last few years, bacon has blown up. What started out as a few clever recipes and the odd decorative item has now become big business. There are bacon candles and air fresheners. There is bacon toothpaste, dental floss, and bacon toothpicks. There is bacon perfume. There is bacon pop. There are bacon bandages, bacon soap, and bacon lip balm. Bacon candy bars (which are delicious). And honestly, there are too many bacon recipes to list them all.
