Bacon Soda, Not as Awesome as it Sounds

Robyn and I have a little tradition on New Year's Eve.  As we ring in the new year we like to try some new foods that we've never tried before.

This year, a friend of mine pointed me in the direction of something truly fabulous.  As anyone with taste buds knows, bacon is the greatest food ever to have been discovered on planet earth.  Naturally, it stands to reason that it would make an excellent flavor for soda.  That's where bacon soda comes in.

Don't I look like a happy lad?
Well, unfortunately it turns out that bacon may actually have some limitations. (I'm as surprised as you are.)  My brother and his wife came over and the four of us gave it a try.  Here is the result:
As you can see, the bacon soda could probably use some improvement.  But, don't worry.  I know you're sad you missed the experience.  That's why I made this video, so you could taste it right along with us.  (And by taste it, I mean don't taste it but watch us taste it and imagine what it tastes like as you see our reactions.)

The bacon soda experience was so profound that it inspired this poem.

Bacon soda, you're kind of gross.
Bacon soda, I hate you most
Bacon is yummy,
in my tummy
Bacon soda makes me sad
Bacons soda is so bad.


  1. This is just the kind of tradition I'd like to start. As long as the new foods don't have to be things like spiders or cockroaches.

    1. You should come over next year. We've never eaten spiders or cockroaches. Everything we eat comes from real stores and is marketed for real people to eat.

      But, if I ever see chocolate covered spiders or something, I'm totally buying it.

  2. So i was watching the video and Delta asked me what i was doing, I said "watching the Bacon Soda Video from new years" she said "Bakingsoda?" I love my wife.

  3. I actually also tried it! I think they took the fake bacon of bacon bits and just..liquified it somehow, it was an unpleasant taste to say the least. Nevertheless I'm glad we all were able to try it.

  4. Thanks for the gross experience.

  5. Some things you should not try to duplicate. There is nothing like the original.
