Bacon Nation

America's obsession with bacon inspires a variety of offbeat products
Implications - The truth is in the cured meat: According to The Week, Americans eat, on average, about 18 pounds of bacon per year. While there isn't a concrete explanation for this unhealthy obsession with bacon (aside from salty meat = good), it is a fact that brands simply can't ignore. Thus, the number of bacon-inspired products is on the rise, with things like bacon-flavored drinks and desserts coming to the fore. What this means for brands is that, when it comes to bacon, nothing -- no matter how bizarre -- is really off limits.
