Bacon its for the College Student

Bacon its for the College Student

By Rocco Loosbrock


Let`s say your son has been away to college for a year or two. He`s out of the dorms and on to apartment living, sharing space with other eager students, staying up late cramming for tests, and foraging for food. If there`s one thing I remember about my college days, it`s that I was hungry. ALWAYS hungry. Giving up the cafeteria meal plan was hard, and led to many late night calls to the pizza delivery guy. My friends and I practically drained our bank accounts on crummy fast food. That`s why giving the gift of bacon may just make you a hero to your kid and his roommates!


Outlets like make giving a smoky, delicious gift basket both easy and fun. You can give anything from two pounds of bacon to a basket crammed with meats, pancakes, seasonings and even apparel! But if you really want to go for the win, try a bacon-of-the-month club. That scholar of yours will wait with baited breath to see which unique bacon flavor awaits him in his mailbox each month. Not only does everyone love getting a package, but come on! It`s bacon! And, if he didn`t call regularly before, this gift will guarantee your phone rings at least once a month "he`ll be thanking you all year long.


If by some odd chance your kid isn`t a bacon fanatic, don`t worry. BaconFreak has everything from sausage to ribs to lobster for your gift giving pleasure. Even BBQ sauces and salsas! He`ll be the king of the grill, a skill he`ll use far more often in life than those Calculus formulas.


This year, enjoy the gift-giving season as you shop from the comfort of your living room. Go to and check out their full line of food and wine clubs for all your family and friends. Good taste has never been easier!
