How was this years International Bacon Day?

How was this years International Bacon Day?

By Rocco Loosbrock

As I mentioned this past week, August 30th was International Bacon Day.  For many of our newest bacon freaks this was their first celebration of this food holiday.  Several websites hosted parties and events aimed at making this event the best ever! We were contacted by so many of our loyal Baconeers " who asked us for bacon recommendations and recipe pairings and the like.  It was our single largest donation of our Bacon is Meat Candy T-shirts; over 100 in total were given to Bacon Freaks who choose to celebrate this day!

One of the parties closest to my home was planned by The Royal Bacon Society folks.  They hosted a party that featured Bacon Freak Bacon and our swag.  I spoke with Marianne the founder of this site and she said that, We prepared several pounds of bacon in various forms and recipes, and I`m here to tell you "there was no bacon left at the end of the day. "  Her fellow Bacon-istas " reviewed Rocco`s Sun-Dried Tomato Bacon and they picked it as the favorite of the day for texture and sheer deliciousness of bacon.  She said, Every time I turned around someone was asking me what it was and where I got it. " 


To document this day we were sent several pictures in which I would like to share with you.  My favorite picture is of the Dog named Brutus.  He definitely showed that he has a love of bacon! Their must have been several injuries in that dog fight as several people had to use the bacon bandages to protect their wounds.  If you missed this bacon day, be sure to get prepared for the next as the parties and events will be bigger and better then ever.
