I have 2 cans but haven't tried it yet. It's bacon so it's got to be delicious!

Here's an idea, gents. How about waking up early one morning, shaving with bacon-scented shaving cream (I saw some a few months ago) and then having cream-of-bacon soup for breakfast? The house would smell great! :D

I got some bacon flavored toothpaste as a gag gift for Christmas this year.

Never tried it, though.

I like curing and smoking my own bacon but the cost of pork bellies has risen to eye-watering levels. It's far cheaper for me to buy a pork loin on sale than it is to get the much fattier - and you would presume cheaper - belly. :cry:
