Although the effort is certainly appreciated, the concept of Bacon Candy seems redundant — as bacon is already the official meat candy. Either way, the striped goodies are available at Gadgets and Gear.
Angry Birds — the video game keeping smartphone users that much more antisocial — has become a global phenomenon. The game which pits bird against pig, has accounted for over 1.2 billion hours of usage in the U.S. alone. Not to mention additional merchandise, including the sale of over three million plush toys and as many as 30 million T-shirts.
So it only makes sense that the disgruntled little birds would get their own cookbook. The upcoming cookbook will be targeted at families and include mostly egg-based recipes… and we’re guessing some pork. The book also encourages the addition of crack in all recipes to make them as addictive as the game.*

Would you like to emit the intoxicating musk of barbecue, even after the last briquette has long since extinguished? Que Cologne is here to help.
Although our Spanish-speaking friends might be asking, what cologne? Que Cologne is meant for those not into the whole brevity thing, and who’d like to smell like pork. Pork Barrel BBQ worked with actual perfumers to engineer the ‘Eau de Barbeque’ to smell just like meat, smoke, spices, and of course summer sweat.
And if you’re the type who feels the need to smell like BBQ all of the time, then you might as well complete the douche circle with a cape.
Sweet potato… The fluorescent orange alternative to its equally boring white, or Yukon Gold brethren. When not trying to be like a regular potato — either getting mashed, or cut into french fry form — the sweet potato can be extraordinary, but needs some help. And as we’ve learned, nothing plays a better supporting role than a pork-flavored sidekick.
Casting bacon in this role would be a mistake — it would just hog the spotlight, and we’re merely trying to complement the sweet potato. Our pork co-star for this installment of Power to the People is bacon’s Italian cousin, pancetta.
