Do you love bacon? I mean really love bacon? You eat bacon for breakfast … have your bacon-flavored milkshake …

 

Well, now, when you die, you can take bacon with you to the afterlife. WCPO introduces...the bacon coffin.

 

“J&D foods producing a bacon coffin … now it doesn’t include real bacon, but these coffins are painted to look like the real thing.”

 

Oh. So, it doesn’t taste like bacon? Not to worry. The Rockford Register Star has good news for the bacon crowd.

 

“The [inside of the] $2,999.99 coffin…comes with bacon-themed items as well, including a bacon air freshener.”

 

You could blame Seattle-based J&D foods for bowing to the bacon boom. Or maybe, bacon is just smart business. The company produces everything from bacon mayonnaise to bacon baby formula. J&D tells KIRO it’s just putting the fun back in funerals.

 

“You know, we hear from customers all the time, is one comment over and over again, I love bacon to death.”

 

So, really, this is no porky prank. It’s legit. And a blogger for CNBC says she’d drop money on it...right after she wins the lottery.

 

“I've already started contemplating how to spend it—pay off all the mortgages and college costs for family members, give a lot to charity, never fly commercial again (EVER), and probably stop working. Then probably go back to work because I can't sit around for the rest of my life.

And when that life ends...I will spend part of my fortune planning a dream funeral. That funeral may have to include the Bacon Coffin.”

The company’s called its bacon coffin classy. The Daily Meal has a response...

“[That’s] an oxymoron if we have ever heard one.”

But the company knows its buffet of bacon products aren’t for everyone … and in a press release obtained by the Consumerist, it brushes off criticism like bacon in a Teflon frying pan.

“Don't you judge us, after baconlube (bacon flavored personal lubricant), we all knew it was just going to keep getting weirder. And yeah, your [sic] right we're probably going to hell for this one.”

No word on how many bacon coffins have been sold to date.  But some members of the Newsy staff are inquiring... just sayin’.
