Mr. Bacon vs. Monsieur Tofu

Food fights are nothing new. This one, however, is a war that takes bacon battles to new levels.

Ladies and gentlemen, let us introduce you to today’s heavyweight contenders—Mr. Bacon and Monsieur Tofu! They’re are two fighting figurines are hot and ready to rumble right out of the box.

The Mr. Bacon figurine stands nearly 6-inches tall and renders all that’s delicious about fatty, salt-cured pork bellies. On the other hand, Monsieur Tofu measures a mere 3-3/8-inches tall in his corner and evokes only the joy of soy.

Guess who sits on top of the food chain? Yeah, that’s who.

Both Mr. Bacon and Monsieur Tofu sport movable arms and legs. The figurines make for a great gift and a witty conversation starter. They’re even a fine tension-builder in households shared by lovers of sweet bacon and tofu devotees. The set can be purchased here.

“Bacon vs. Tofu is our version of the never-ending struggle in our food world of delicious versus bland, unhealthy versus healthy, and all the
other contrasts that are represented by both bacon and tofu,” says David Wahl of Archie McPhee, the retailer of toys and novelties that sells the Mr. Bacon and Monsieur Tofu set.

“If you’d like to know who won,” Wahl adds, “the Mr. Bacon figure is sold separately
Tofu is not. Also, Mr. Bacon got his own board game.”

Enough said. We have a winner!

  1. Why is Monsieur Tofu French?

    The French almost never cook with tofu.

    Surely an Asian tofu-man would have been more appropriate.
