The bacon condoms ($9.99) come in a package that looks like a slice of bacon, and they’re treated with bacon lube, a water-based lubricant that is advertised to taste and smell like greasy bacon.
“J&D’s Bacon Condoms™ are proudly Made in America of the highest quality latex. Every Bacon Condom has been rigorously tested to help ensure reliability and the utmost safety for when you’re makin’ Bacon. As an added bonus, J&D’s baconlube™ ultra premium water based meat flavored personal lubricant has been generously applied inside and out for an even more hot pork experience.”
J&D co-founder Justin Esch told the Miami New Times that the company worked with the Food and Drug Administration to make sure it met with government regulations.
“The FDA is involved and there’s a lot of testing that goes on,” he said. “We could have made novelty condoms, but really, what fun is that?”
The Miami New Times points out that Baconlube, the brainchild of J&D’s Foods, which ironically is vegan and sells for $11.99, created a media frenzy when it was launched about a year ago.
Proctor & Gamble must have assumed that bacon-flavored condoms should be followed by the creation of a bacon-flavored mouthwash.
And so in April, Scope released a YouTube video which describes bacon’s various forms — carbonated bacon, spreadable bacon, bacon shaving cream, and a bacon Kevin Bacon portrait. “Now comes the bacon mouthwash for breath that sizzles.”
Scope claims the bacon-flavored mouthwash only tastes like bacon while you swish, “but leaves your breath smelling minty fresh 5 times longer than brushing alone.”
