Apparently Kids Don’t Like All Candy

Posted By on December 8, 2008

On Sunday afternoon, I went over to my grandma’s house because my brother and his family were coming over for a visit. So it meant I could see my niece and nephew without having to drive 60 miles. And since I was out until 3 AM on Saturday night, the less driving I had to do, the better.

It was good to see everyone and play with Noah and Skyler. I decided to bring over a treat for the kids. See a few months back, Melissa sent me an awesome care package full of all things Bacon. There were Bacon air fresheners, Bacon floss, Bacon toothpicks and the creme de la creme, Bacon CANDY!

Thankfully, it isn’t supposed to taste like bacon. See, it has a STRAWBERRY FLAVOR! It looks so real!

After Melissa sent it, she told me I had to try it. I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. It would be one thing if you didn’t have to look at it and know it looked like raw Bacon. So I figured “hey, kids love candy! They’ll eat it! They eat anything that isn’t good for them.”

And they tried it. Without any coaxing. Because they somehow KNEW it was candy without us telling them. They have some sort of weird candy sixth sense. Of course we encouraged them. “They are just like gummy treats!” we told them.

I made them each pose with their Gummy Bacon. Noah dug right in. Figuring that Auntie would not make him eat something disgusting.

Skyler tried it. Her verdict? “This is GROSS.”

I tried it too, just to say that I did. It was disgusting. I gagged a little. I think it was more of the visual. But it wasn’t very gummy, it was kind of hard to chew. The strawberry flavor was real weak, so it was like you were chewing on wax. That looked like raw bacon. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little just thinking about it.


If you want some of your own Bacon for the holidays, something better than Gummy Bacon, don’t forget to buy all your loved ones a What Would Bacon Do shirt! They come in two styles.



Order yours today. We have a variety of items to choose from, ranging from mousepads to infant and toddler gifts, to men’s and women’s apparel. And this Bacon is Kosher!

Won’t you make someone’s holiday Bacerriffic by giving them what we all deserve, BACON GIFTS!

  1. You are truly brave for trying that–ugh! I’m such a psychological eater, I couldn’t have done it, even knowing it’s not meat.

    OMG, I can’t believe y’all ate that. I’m pretty sure I would have kept it for show but it would have never crossed my lips…though I might have tried it on Hope 😉

    So you’ve upped the ante, huh? Looks like I really am going to have to bring my Bacon Bandages next week when I see Dr. Hottie… 😉

    Ugh, I’m so not trying that. Now, if it came in cafe mocha or carmel macchiato flavor, that might be a different story.

    Really? Tastes like strawberry? It looks like it would be salty, but they did a great job with the presentation.

    That stuff looks HORRIFYING.

  17. Ugh. Lara sent me some bacon flavored lollipops that were absolutely revolting. But they were actually bacon flavored, so it made them 100 times worse.

    Oh, you’re absolutely right, kids always know that candy is candy. I can’t sneak shit around here.

    It’s the same mystery I had with my dog– how does the crinkling plastic of my secret foodstuffs sound different from across the house than my crinkling the plastic of some new washers or a piece of junk mail??

    Only the Candy Kings can say for sure.

    P.S. You know who makes a better bacon candy? Pigs. Unwillingly, with their bodies.
