Wake Up and Smell the Bacon

Sugar Freedom Week 5, Day 5


Stop everything. You’re going to want to read this, especially if you have an iPhone.

Someone has invented an alarm for your phone that sounds — AND SMELLS — like bacon.


(Sorry about the all-caps. But this is big news, guys.)

Check out this synopsis from USA Today:

Quite possibly the best invention since whatever came before sliced bread, a new iOS device wakes you up with the sweet scents — and sounds — of sizzling bacon.

We all knew it was just a matter of time before a “smell-o-phone” came along, but leave it to the genius marketing minds behind the Wienermobile to create the ultimate baconator: the Wake Up And Smell The Bacon.

Fresh from the The Oscar Mayer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon, the porky plug-in is filled with bacon-scented liquid. The tiny accessory slides into the headphone jack of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod (sorry Android and Windows Phone fans), where you pair it with the free companion app, set an alarm, and then bask in the heavenly bacon-filled cloud wafting your way come morning.

Talk about guilt-free indulgence. Especially for those of us in the Sugar Freedom challenge. Because guess what? A lot of packaged bacon is processed with sugar. To get bacon that hasn’t been marred by sugar nowadays, you basically have to raise and slaughter your own hog (my father-in-law actually did that this year, and the results were AMAZING).

Question: Has anyone actually tried this alarm yet? And does it actually work? Because I think I found Jerod’s birthday present. 🙂
