Stocking Stuffers Pt. II
For the Bacon Lover

Part II of my series in Stock Stuffers!

Normally I’d start this with a little story, a little explanation about what I’m about to show you.  Not today.

This  speaks for itself.

O.K.  Now that you’ve all absorbed the wonder that is Bacon Flavoured Lip Balm I’ll tell you a little story.

I love bacon.  Who doesn’t love bacon?  People who don’t like kittens and backrubs, that’s who.  Weirdos.

My boyfriend also loves bacon.   It’s like we were made for each other!  So last Christmas I ordered this Bacon Lip Balm for his stocking.  It was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever done.  I thought I’d vomit from the excitement of it.  Christmas morning he opened up the lip balm and laughed and laughed.  Then he tried it.  Then he thought he’d vomit.   I tried it.  Nope.  It wasn’t very good.  It tasted like … bacon lip balm.

But it was one of the most fun presents I’ve ever given.  And for $3.99, plus free shipping in the States, you can’t go wrong.  Even if it does taste gross, it’s hilarious.  If you take a look at the site I recommend you also check out their Bacon gift pack for $9.99 which includes, Bacon flavoured popcorn, the Bacon lip balm, a package of Bacon flavoured gravy and 2 Bacon flavoured soda pops.

I’m not sure I’d recommend you eat the products … but you should certainly stuff a stocking with them.

If you like it, the knit stocking on the home page picture is from Lands’ End.  It is not bacon flavoured.  To the best of my knowledge.

In case you missed it, here’s Stocking Stuffers Pt. I

    You do know about bacon floss, yes? If not, let me be your new best friend:

    You just KNOW that everyone in my house is getting this in their stocking. Including me.

  2. Todd@PhitZone says:

    Oh my goodness… that made my stomach gurgle just at the thought of bacon lip balm. ehhhh! I like the idea of fun gifts though–especially cheap ones. 🙂

  3. Jenn V. says:

    Here’s a bacon-themed present that I received for Christmas last year… and it actually tastes GOOD!

    • Alexandra Dare says:

      Ooohh I want to TRY. I love bacon dipped in maple syrup, so I’m betting I would probably like chocolate-covered bacon pieces as well. And candied bacon. I’ve always wanted to try candied bacon… Crap, now I’m craving bacon.

  4. mary says:

    I was astonished at the thorough yumminess of Larsen Bacon… everything good, yummy bacon should be and then I found out it’s from MapleLeaf so I’m less excited now but I’ll buy more… it’s either at FreshCo or Locococococos

    • Karen says:

      I’ll give it a shot. I’m finding a lot of bacon tastes “chemically” to me for some reason lately. The fake smoke or something. Thx.! ~ karen

  5. Patti says:

    Karen! I love this! Now if only you could share some super awesome and amazing dollar store crafts that would make the perfect gifts for mass people at Christmas. That would be terrific!

  6. Steph says:

    Bacon flavored pop…. I just threw up in my mouth a little bit…

  7. Natalie says:

    Haha. Vomit should always be the desired effect when giving gifts 🙂

  8. Sharon Woo says:

    This is the perfect gift Karen! I really admire your tenacity to find unique and hilarious gifts. I would much rather give loved ones a tube of cured meat flavored goop than an itchy sweater. Well some of my family members deserve itchy sweaters!

  9. A friend of mine gave me these ‘bacon strips’ bandages a couple years ago. I ran out of regular Band-Aids and popped open the bacon ones. The bonus of these babies? They make your wound look much, MUCH worse than it actually is:

  10. Honestly, if you didn’t have a boyfriend, I would ask you to marry me. Well and the whole I am not straight thing….but those are small details! I love the idea….but if you want to go “hog wild” then you should look at the Bacon of the Month Club:

    Just a thought…but honestly, I 110% love your blog. Thank you for making me smile 🙂

  11. Alexandra Dare says:

    Not sure how I feel about bacon lip balm. It reminds me of buttery popcorn flavored Jelly Bellies. And those other weird Harry Potter flavors… Booger, I think? And vomit… I’m pretty sure there’s a vomit-flavored Jelly Belly.

  12. Ok I guess I will be getting my husband the bacon lip balm and the floss… and maybe the bandaids. I recently went vegan but he still eats meat. I kinda feel bad for not cooking him meat anymore!

  13. Melissa says:

    As soon as I read this I went to the site and bought both the lip balm and the bacon flavoured envelopes! No longer will I suffer foul tastine mail. Thanks Karen!

  15. Jen A says:

    Fact 1: everything is better with bacon.
    Fact 2: the exception to Fact 1 is that bacon itself is better with sausage.

    The Deep Fryar came up with some great Canadian alternate usees for bacon. Check it out at

    You probably already know this but Wal-Mart has started carrying “Bacon-aise”. Bacon flavored Mayonnaise. I haven’t worked up the courage to try it yet, if I do I may never go back to the fat free mayo, and then I’d die an absurdly early death due to clogged arteries and such. But it’s a fun word to say out loud…bacon-aise.
