Bacon lovers rejoice, yet again. This might sound like a prank, but it's really not. Oscar Mayer has created an iPhone app that can wake you up with the sweet smell of bacon. Unfortunately, it can't make any real bacon for you. At least not yet.

WDSU reports: "Wake Up And Smell The Bacon was introduced Wednesday. The smell alarm is a device that, once paired with your iPhone and companion app, will wake you up with the sizzling sound of bacon and a perfume of pork that the device puffs out. But then what? Carnivores could awaken grumpy that no bacon is in place for them. Sad? Perhaps. Innovative? You bet!

It’s the first smell-emitting device for the iPhone. But don’t rush out to the Apple Store or your local grocer, looking for the device. It’s not available for just anyone. To get your meat-loving hands on the contraption, you have to enter a contest on Oscar Mayer’s website, which notes that limited quantities of the device are available."

So there is a catch, the product isn't available to just anyone. However, it could be in the very near future. Are you excited, or is this all too silly? Would you want your home to smell like bacon, even if there wasn't any actual bacon present?

    I hope it comes to Google Play soon. I'd wake up no matter how tired I was if I smelled bacon! :D

    Mostly because I'd be really disappointed that there isn't any actual bacon.

    Love the smell of bacon. Love the taste of bacon even more. Hate the thought of smelling bacon and not eating it.

    Can "Smell-O-Vision" be far behind? (And no, I don't mean the scratch-n-sniff things they had in the movies. ;) Personally, I'd prefer the smell of pancakes and coffee...

    I'd say awesome, but you can't eat what you smell. It makes as much sense as chocolate body wash.

    You don't need it , but if it makes you wake up wanting to eat bacon, brilliant marketing. Then the visits to the Dr., and the prescription for statins, and the gym membership, bacon just makes the corporate world go round.

    I think it would be quite frustrating to wake up with the smell of bacon only to see that there wasn't any.

    I like the smell of bacon, but if I woke up in the middle of the night and smelled it I'd be craving bacon all through out the night.

    I'm so sick of bacon being some stupid fad. Bacon has turned from food to a retarded trend.

    bacon has never been a trend. IT has always been a favorite food for decades.
