Bacon is so popular as to seem inescapable these days, so it would be impossible to inject any more shock and awe into the topic. Right?

Meet the Bacon Explosion, which according to the New York Times has “swept the Internet.” And why wouldn’t it? The four-pound log of bacon and sausage basted with barbecue sauce flies in the face of our health-conscious times (not to mention common sense). It’s already been the topic of three different threads on Chowhound. And no doubt is giving the Bacon Mat Cheese Roll a run for its money.

Guess the bacon backlash hasn’t quite taken hold yet.
