They Had Me Fooled!

I was checking out the seriouseats blog when I came across a post about squeeze bacon. Yes, you read right-squeeze bacon in bottle. This product is called Squeez Bacon and you can get it from It is supposedly 100% real cooked bacon that has been processed into a paste by some special blending process. All while I was reading this I was thinking this sounds pretty gross and it can't be real- but there are so many unbelievable products on the market right now so maybe it is real. Then I clicked the add to cart link (just out of curiosity of course) and surely there was a big Gotcha April Fool message . And somehow I am really glad this was a joke.
