The internets run on bacon. This we know. What we also know is that the obsession has engendered a variety of products, from bacon-flavored lip balm to bacon-flavored vodka. In view of this and the apparent fascination with mixing food with sex, we weren’t surprised to encounter the following item: bacon-flavored lubricant.
The J&D blog offered details in a post from 2009:
As many of you know, we’re huge bacon lovers here at J&D’s. We now make Bacon Salt, Baconnaise and Bacon Lip Balm. That last one seemed like a stretch at first, but now that bacon has successfully made the jump from food to personal care, we’re pushing it even further.
With that said, we’re happy to introduce our newest product, baconlube™. It’s not for sale yet, but we’re looking for early product testers to put our “Everything should taste like bacon” tagline to the test. Please email us at email@example.com to get on our beta tester list.
Sadly for those excited about it, this item (which is apparently still going strong around the web two years later), was an April Fool’s prank played by J&D, who admitted, in a later blog post, that they were amazed at the level of interest.
Keep sending e-mail and leaving them comments, eager bacon-lovers. Maybe one day, your dream lube will be baconized.
