On April 1, 2009, one of the greatest products ever conceived made its way to the online shopping carts of millions. While not normally known for selling condiments, the web site ThinkGeek.com brought to us the marvelous, the magnificent…
Direct from Sweden, the bacon you can squeeze comes in a ketchup-style bottle from which you can squeeze out strips of delicious bacon onto any meal. According to ThinkGeek.com, Squeez Bacon was invented by a young Swedish who found that “by precooking it and blending it in a special way, he was able to make a fully cooked 100% bacon paste that could be squeezed through a tube.” All we can say is WOW. Why was this not invented sooner?
Of course, some things in life are just too good to be true. While the slogan alone could have helped to sell millions of bottles — “If it’s edible, it’s better with Squeez Bacon” — it was indeed a fantasy.
ThinkGeek.com tricked us all with this April Fool’s joke. I would say well done, but damn why can’t the world have Squeez Bacon? Someone please invent this product…and fast!
