We now live in a world where there is bacon-infused everything. Many of us LOVE that this has happened, and some bacon lovers took it so far as to create a festival in Atlantic City for Bacon Week.

The Huffington Post writes: "Bacon milkshakes. Chocolate-covered bacon shaped like roses. Bacon-flavored toothpaste, dental floss and lip balm. Bacon bourbon, margaritas, beer and vodka. Bacon ice cream sundaes. A BLT sandwich with a full pound of bacon. They're all on the menu this week as one Atlantic City casino stretches the bounds of good taste and cardiovascular health with Bacon Week. The festival at the Tropicana Casino and Resort gives new meaning to the term "pigging out."

The idea of a bacon festival is not as far-fetched as it might sound. Americans eat about 1.5 billion pounds of bacon a year, according to the National Pork Board. And the website bacontoday.com counted nearly 30 bacon festivals around the country from late April through December 2013, many of whose tickets sold out in minutes."

1.5 billion pounds of bacon?! My lord. Is it possible to get sick of bacon, or is bacon officially the perfect food? I mean, it goes good with chocolate, other meats, eggs, you name it. Can you recall a time you had too much bacon...so much that you got sick of it? The horror!

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE bacon. But it's best in moderation, as with pretty much all things. Now, try asking me this when I'm drunk and you'll get a totally different story.

    While it may not be possible to get "sick of" bacon as in stop enjoying the taste of it, some may develop hypertension from all the salt.

    ALTHOUGH I LOVE BACON I DON'T EAT IT BACON BECAUSE IT IS CONSIDERED UNCLE UNCLEAN BY YAHUSHUA.

    pigs are actually very clean animals. the reason they roll around in the mud is they have very, very fine hair, so the mud acts as sunscreen to keep them from getting burned.

    I really wish there was a Yes&No; option.

    I'm definitely not sick of eating bacon, could probably mow down half a package in one sitting. It's like chips, the more you eat...

    But here's where the sick-of-it comes in.

    I'm sick of bacon as a freaking trend!

    Everywhere it's bacon this, bacon that, bacon scented soap, bacon flavoured candy, maple bacon ice cream and doughnuts, just enough already and simply give me a plate of bacon without all that other gunk, no maple syrup/sugar, I don't want bacon in anything sweet or flavorist something that just doesn't work.

    Just a few strips of crisp bacon on pancakes or pizza, or eaten by itself, or even chopped into a pasta/potato dish or soup, or chopped up and put in with a savoury mixed nut mixture, like with smoke-house almonds.

    But people who want bacon doughnuts and bacon maple ice cream or bacon oreos etc can keep that crap, I don't want it anywhere near me!

    I sure didn't think I would but I'm telling you that if it's cooked right and that's the biggie, it taste like sea salt and cream in side your chocolate.. I can get that at the store....so why waste the chocolate???
  • Adam Miss Capri 2014/02/18 19:08:32

    Yeah. Bacon is salty. Chocolate is sweet. Together = YUCK!

    No, but there is such thing as putting it into a bunch of stuff where it just doesn't belong and is just gross. I wonder if a few years from now people are going to look back on this annoying and gross edible meme and say "Yknow, I really never did like bacon and peppermint chocolate together, don't know what I was trying to prove back then." Bleh.

    Yeah, eating it normally is one thing. It's all the unappealing things people are bent on trying with it that's really bugging and grossing me out.

    Very easily, bacon has a lot of fat so can become rancid fairly quickly.....Most vaieties of bacon also have been (cured) so is processed so can cause allergies

    Actually seafood and poultry can go rancid pretty quickly too if not stored properly, or cooked properly in the case of something like shrimp. Bacon has to be good quality for me to like it. I've always been especially fussy about ham too ever since smelling some that had gone off. *gag*
  • Joe61 Miss Capri 2014/02/17 20:45:13
    Joe61
    That's very true any kind of food can turn rancid even fruit and vegetables....But the question was particularly referring to bacon.

    Actually, it isn't all that silly. It's not so much being sick of just bacon itself, but this infernal fad.
