Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich

Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich

The Dunkin’ Donuts Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich is coming in time for National Donut Day on Friday. Really, it is a wonder it took this long.

This savory and sweet breakfast treat, which consists of a fried egg and cherrywood-smoked bacon inside a split glazed yeast ring donut for 360 calories, will now be a permanent menu item at participating U.S. DD restaurants.

You can read all about it at Dunkin’ Donuts. (In case you were wondering, they suggest “the perfect beverage to go with the Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich is a cup of Dunkin’ Donuts Original Blend Coffee.”) But really, what more do you need to know? Bacon. Donut. Egg. Friday.

Clean The Kitchen With Bacon

ThinkGeek Sizzling Bacon Kitchen Towel Dish Towel

Looks good, doesn’t it?

Say hello to the internet’s favorite food in dish towel form: The ThinkGeek Sizzling Bacon Kitchen Towel Dish Towel. When draped over your shoulder while frying up some bacon, you could not look more dashing. Of course, that requires keeping in mind which one is which. While having a real piece of bacon draped over your shoulder is certainly fashionable, trying to clean the kitchen with bacon probably won’t work. Then again, bacon is pretty magical.

Big Mouth Toys The Wakin Shakin Bacon Alarm Clock

Big Mouth Toys The Wakin Shakin Bacon Alarm Clock

The baconocalypse is upon us. And here we all thought the upcoming bacon shortage was bad news. Nope. It gets worse. Bacon worse.

Signaling the end to life as we know it is the Big Mouth Toys The Wakin Shakin Bacon Alarm Clock. Every morning until the end, you too can wake up to a shaking piece of bacon. It wiggles and sizzles and raps about yummy bacon too. Truly, the impending baconpocalypse has doomed us all. Doom!

The silly bacon dude dances, raps and sizzles to wake you up in a new and exciting way. Set the alarm and awake to him rapping about his love of bacon and the sizzle of bacon cooking. All that is missing is the yummy bacon smell.

This gag gift brings to mind another useless gadget that once made the rounds. Oddly enough, it appears the Big Mouth Billy Bass faced shortages too. Hope does remain: perhaps that Wakin Shakin Bacon Alarm Clock seen above is waving goodbye!

I didn’t know the Royal Couple was honeymooning in Hollywood, but I do know a good hot dog when I see one. Maybe Will and Kate (whoever they are) can take one back to the other side of the pond to give the food of their country a much needed, uh, hot beef injection of flavor.

This is a press release:

A new hot dog was created in honor of the royal visit – THE ROYAL DOG, 2 Hot Dogs in 1 bun with “royal toppings” which include: mustard, cheese, onions, pickle relish, a “spot” of Pink’s famous chili and 2 slices of bacon, “a mere trifle at ₤3.73” or $6.00. Come one, come all, thou shall dine like Royalty!!
