Yeah, I see the underlying spite in this "bacon is over" schtick. So the people who make Bacon Salt won't let you sell any more now that they have shelf space in the supers? Well, I still haven't used up the supply I bought from you in July of '09 because...

I graduated from Bacon to Pepperoni over a year ago. Yes, Pepperoni. You can eat it uncooked, but a few seconds in the microwave and it comes out crispy as the best bacon and... well, also Italian! Pepperoni and Eggs? Hellyeah. A PLT Sandwich? Try it, you'll like it. And crumble up some Pepperoni bits for distribution over everything previously baconed...

Yep, I got over the bacon thing just about the time I bought the Flying Pig http://kids.woot.com/offers/when-pigs-fly-plush-pig
Of course, Pepperoni is made from pork too... just don't tell BirdyPig.

(One more thing, how could you do a piece on bacon overexposure without http://baconcat.com/ ?)

You are basically touching on the bigger issue here: salami. It's all about salami.

BACON has just begun. It's come into it's own.
About time too....Bacon has gone to long un-noticed. NOW that the day is here, you want to just take it away.
I say NO !!! I say HELL no !!! BACON live on, never say no to "meat candy."
I'm not letting go...sorry for the rant.

Thank goodness.

I'm OK with bacon. What I'm tired of is every reference to bacon being bombarded by comments espousing an unnatural and/or zombie-like appreciation of the plastic-sealed meat product. Surprisingly, responding to a reference to the Great Instauration or The New Atlantis with "Mmm...bacon" isn't making the point you might think it's making.

Also, if the recipe calls for arranging bacon so that, rather than getting crispy, you get food with flabby, flaccid pork strips draped over it, just surrender before preheating the oven and admit that the pre-bacon recipe was probably more than a little questionable.

Bacon flavoring is also fairly suspect. If you want something to taste like bacon, just eat the darn bacon!

Bacon is more powerful than you or I.

To declare an end is only depriving yourself.

It was never about bacon.

It was always about pork belly.

Bacon is just one aspect of pork belly. We always knew that.

Good thing bacon is done with the trendy/cool types. Now us bacon lovers with a decades long and satisfying porky-past can get back to enjoying it without being accused of being a fair weather fan of its greasy deliciousness.

BTW...turkey bacon should be banned from using the word "bacon" in its name. It is an abomination!

Pfftt.. I was into bacon BEFORE it was cool!

I saw bacon back in some tiny club that you've never heard of when it was just starting out.

Now, let me put on my skinny jeans, my stupid glasses and grown out more neckbeard.

Nobody's gonna tell me bacon is done as long as I can enjoy a good BLT, or some pancakes / french toast with a tasty side of 4 pieces of the sweet taste of that breakfast treat!

When 60+ people show up yearly to my bacon party I can guarantee it's not done. It's just beginning.

Bacon isn't done. There will always be a place for the classic bacon taste, artisan bacon, and products where bacon is added with care and meaning, not just to cash in on a fad. (Vosges Mo's Bacon Bar = good. Bacon Mints = not as good. Bacon-flavored matzoh = ridiculous)

But yes, the novelty of "bacon branding" everything has certainly worn off.

I've been eating bacon for over 50 years and am not stopping now. I either peel out the fat and just eat the lean or I have turkey bacon. Turkey bacon tastes like real bacon to me, but those Bac-Os are just nasty. Artificial bacon flavoring must go.

..looking forward to the WootOff!!!

I'm with you. Not trying to sound like a hipster but I really was in to bacon before it was cool. Personally I never got in to all the bacon flavored this and that or the super premium foodie stuff. No I started with plain ol' bacon and I plan to stay with bacon for the rest of my life. Granted my life may be shorter because of all that bacon, but it certainly will be have been tastier. My concession to health is I have mostly switched to the precooked stuff. 60 calories,5mg of cholesterol per serving. Maybe I will live long enough to eat more bacon this way.

Bacon will never be done...the Pork Council is the NASCAR of food promoters when it comes to bacon. And there is a whole market devoted to pork belly futures.

Besides, bacon is a gateway meat for vegetarians! It may fade but bacon will always be in our hearts and on our plates..

No, no. Bacon, delicious. Cruddy meats and vegetables wrapped in bacon, not so delicious, and generally ruins the bacon. Bacon-flavored doorknobs and bacon-shaped gold tooth-fronts, mildly amusing for, like, five minutes, a hundred years ago. Wedging the word "bacon" into every sentence to show that you know people on the Internet talk about bacon a lot, just...no.

Well, with one exception, I think.

That said, for a bacon-themed Woot-off, there's surprisingly little bacon-y anything.
