Wake up and smell the bacon ... with a bacon app

Oscar Mayer App Lets You Wake to Smell of Sizzling Bacon

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Want to wake up to the sound of bacon sizzling on the stove with its aroma drawing you out of bed?

There's an app for that.

Oscar Mayer says it has created a bacon-scented app for the iPhone, developed by the Madison-based company's Institute for the Advancement of Bacon.

The company says that to emit a small puff reminiscent of bacon, the user needs an external device that plugs into the headphone jack. The app itself produces the sound of bacon sizzling in a pan.

Oscar Mayer says the aroma-producing device won't be sold in stores and that quantities are limited. The company is giving away 4,700 devices beginning Thursday.

Oscar Mayer is part of Kraft Foods Group Inc., based in Glenview, Ill.

I just throw 6 slices of center cut into a medium heated large pan, then have a margarita while it is sizzling then enjoy the hot and greasy swine flesh. Bacon IS heaven.

All I have to say is, there is a huge difference between waking up to the smell of cooking bacon, and having to get up to make it.

What's next, bacon farts for vegetarians who miss the smell of rotting meat farts when they use the bathroom?
