What’s With The Bacon Craze?

Fair warning: This video is ridiculous! ha

If you spend anytime on Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, or pretty much any other website you’ve probably picked up on the recent bacon craze. Suddenly bacon is more than a favorite breakfast food or burger topping; bacon is a way of life. There’s a bacon Facebook fan page, bacon inspired nail polish, lampshades, adhesive bandages, cell phone cases, and even bacon scented candles (check out our “Bacon Craze” Pinterest board to see a few of these bizarre adaptations).

So what’s with the bacon craze? Why this sudden outpouring of bacon love? Well, a few weeks ago the National Pig Association in Britain announced an inevitable world bacon and pork product shortage in 2013 as a result of the increased prices for feed following severe drought. In fact, pork supply in US warehouses was at a record high last month, rising 31% to 580.8 million pounds as farmers scaled down their herds in an effort to save on feed costs.

Luckily, according to Steve Meyer, consultant to the National Pork Producers Council and National Pork Board, there’s no risk of a shortage saying, “If the definition of shortage is that you can’t find it on the shelves, then no, the concern is not valid. If the concern is higher cost for it, then yes.”
