In my book, bacon is the perfect food. Smells great. Tastes even better. And there’s that hilarious dog treat commercial:
“Bacon, bacon, bacon! I can’t READ!!!”
Ah, bacon, (said the Sticky Egg). But today I learned two things about bacon that I did not know.
1. There’s a website dedicated to this porkiest of delights: BaconToday.com
(I’ll be bookmarking that one before my next breakfast.)
2. Graphic designer Neil Caldwell has created bacon in the colors of the rainbow.
Does bacon need to be in bright colors? No. Will they make it taste better? Probably not. But ya gotta admit — it’s pretty amazing looking. And the colors maintain their brightness post-cooking.
BaconToday.com points out that the bright colors will almost guarantee kids will eat their bacon…something I’m sure every mother worries about each morning. My first thought was home decor. Now you can match your meat to your kitchen colors…or the holiday you’re celebrating…or that color that suits your personality best.
That rainbow rasher in the photo would make a great centerpiece in and of itself. You don’t even have to eat bacon to appreciate it.
Caldwell is keeping mum about how he makes his bacon bright, but I have a feeling food companies will pay him big bucks for his secret. Bacon isn’t the only food even more attractive in living color.
