Yes people, this product actually exists - bacon flavored envelopes! I saw these 'MMMvelopes' featured in the Hungry Girl newsletter today and I was quite shocked and intrigued by this interesting invention. The manufacturer of this bacon-inspired mailer is J&D's, who's slogan is none other than, "Everything should taste like bacon!".
They go on to explain their product with the following description:
"Technology has given us a lot lately. The car. TV. X-rays. The refrigerator. The Internet. Heck, we even cured polio. But what have our envelopes tasted like for the last 4,000 years? Armpit, that’s what.
Really, people? If we can’t overcome this kind of minor technical challenge, it’s only a matter of time until some super-advanced race of aliens with lasers, spaceships and a delicious federal mail system comes down and colonizes the world. And nobody wants that (except for the aliens, of course).
So, after thousands of years and kajillions of horrible tasting envelopes licked, we’re happy to report that J&D’s Bacon-Flavored MMMvelopes™ are here to save the day. No longer will envelopes taste like the underside of your car. You can enjoy the taste of delicious bacon instead.
That’s right, bacon. It’s not real bacon, mind you, so you won’t have to start storing your envelopes in the refrigerator. But it really does taste like bacon. Which is what you really wanted in the first place, isn’t it? And it only took us 4,000 years to get there. Eat that, alien invaders."
**Now I admit that I LOVE bacon - yes, it is quite a tasty and amazing food. But somehow the idea of licking a bacon-flavored envelope just seems plain WRONG. How about starting with something more universal such as cherry or grape flavored envelopes? And for some icing on the cake, J&D's also offers bacon-flavored popcorn...ha! Hmm.....gotta love America. : )
