A couple months ago, someone (maybe pets blogger Jill?) gave me a bag of Bacon Pop.
That's right -- bacon-flavored popcorn.
Individually, I love popcorn and bacon with almost religious fervor. But how would they taste together?
Too afraid to find out, I let the bag be. Then Editor Amanda spotted it, and said, 'Mark might like that.'
About an hour ago, Mark fired up the microwave. The smell hasn't gone away yet. I think the newsroom may be on the verge of mutiny ...
"Did someone put a tire in the microwave?," one coworker asked.
"Ugh, what is that?" another wondered.
Meanwhile, Mark munched. I tried some, too. Bacon Pop doesn't really taste like bacon. Well, maybe there's a vague hint of it, like when you cook bacon in a skillet but don't properly wash it, and the next thing you cook in the skillet kind of tastes like bacon. KnowwhatI'msaying?
In short, Bacon Pop is all scent. To which I say, 'Boo, bacon pop. Booooo.'
Mark seems to like it, though.
