10lb Box of Bacon

Usually if someone makes something out of bacon we get pretty excited about sharing the result with you. In this case, though, it’s the beginning of their story that I felt was newsworthy.

Kim W. shot us this link to the Commanche Club. It’s an post written by a guy who had made his first bacon explosion. You can read the post to see how he followed the original recipe and ended up with his own heart-attack-in-a-tube, but I wanted to draw your attention to the very first thing he said and the very first picture he posted:

“It all started last night when my wife came home with a mysterious box. I got up to investigate as she laid it on the counter with a *thump*. It was a cardboard box, and inside it, 10 lbs of bacon.”


So many questions…

Where do you buy a box of bacon?

How much does a 10lb box of bacon cost?

Why is all the bacon just piled in the box?

Was it FedExed?

I love to see something as ridiculous as a box of bacon. It reminds me that there is still good in this world.

    When I have big parties, I go to Sam’s Club and purchase the 10-lb box of bacon. It’s not a party without bacon!

    What’s so ridiculous about a 10 lb. box of bacon? It actually sounds like a savvy shopping move. Buying in bulk usually means great savings, and fewer trips to the store for the essential(s).

    I’m gonna go ahead and agree with compass. But, I also must agree with Lisa. And I also must add this: If you could have any amount of bacon how much would it be.

    When i lived in Arizona, I used to buy bacon at one of the supermarkets in 10 pound boxes like that. It was sold as bits and pieces and stacked like that picture. Maybe that is what is pictured. I can’t find it around here in Kentucky. 🙁
