Have you noticed that references to bacon have mushroomed in popularity on the internet? (yes, pun intended. A bad pun, but it was intentional) I frequently see jokes and other items about bacon such as a picture of a woman wearing a bacon bra, a man wearing a bacon condom (well, not sure what else to call it), and so on. I mean, whassup with bacon these days???
I am a bacon-lover, too. Although in limited quantities since I stopped salting my food years ago and can only eat just a few slices of bacon due to the salt content. I almost immediately have to follow it up with something sweet. Although bacon on food, like a burger, is different. Anyway, back to the point… I love bacon, but somehow, ehhhh… I’m not quite sold on this one. I’d have to try it first. I mean, it is only eight bucks before shipping….
Squeez Bacon® is now listed for sale on Think Geek. The breadcrumb even humorously lists bacon in it (referencing America’s addiction to bacon), so it shows as:
The description is great so I must share in it’s entirety. Well, no… I “must” not do anything, but I will share in it’s entirety:
The World’s Most Perfect Food
A few years after WWII ended, a young man working in a small restaurant in Sweden developed a new way to process bacon. By precooking it and blending it in a special way, he was able to make a fully cooked 100% bacon paste that could be squeezed from a tube. Knowing he had discovered something paradigm-shifting, young Vilhelm Lillefläsk quickly went into business. That, dear friends, is when Squeez Bacon® was born. And this delicious delectable from Sweden has finally been brought over to the USA – now with American Flavor!
We’ve been working for months now with Vilhelm Lillefläsk (yes, he still runs the company!) to bring Squeez Bacon® here, and boy are we proud. Why? Because Squeez Bacon® is simply the tastiest bacon food product ever made. Did you know that it’s rumored ABBA met while eating Squeez Bacon® sandwiches? And even IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad (we’ve heard) never travels without a case! He loves it on his American style meatballs. Ojojoj!
Vilhelm Lillefläsk’s Squeez Bacon® is fully cooked 100% bacon. Due to the patented electro-mechanical process by which Squeez Bacon® is rendered, it requires no preservatives or other additives. Each serving is as healthy as real bacon, and equivalent to 4 premium slices of bacon! You can put it on sandwiches, pizza, pastas, bacon, soups, pies, eat it hot or cold (warm Squeez Bacon® on toasted rye is to die for), substitute it for bacon in your recipes, or even eat it right out of the tube like we do! If it’s edible, it’s better with Squeez Bacon®. In the immortal words of Vilhelm Lillefläsk, “Aldrig kommer att ge dig upp!” Once you get a taste of Squeez Bacon®, you’ll know exactly what he meant.
- Each tube contains 21oz (595g) of Squeez Bacon®.
- 16 servings – equivalent to 64 slices of bacon!
- Bottled in Sweden, made from U.S. bred swine.
- Shelf Life of 12 years.
- No refrigeration needed.
- Jätte gott!
There you go. Squeez Bacon®. I have to admit, though, I find the 12-year shelf life a bit frightening. With the salt content of bacon, though, and being a cooked product, then I’m not surprised. Actually, this would make a GREAT item to have taken along when I used to guide 5-day back country backpack trips in my younger days. Hmmmm… still something to consider for camping and many other outings where perishable food is not advisable or possible to take.
Oh, almost forgot… the video commercial from Sweden. Subtitles, folks….

America’s addiction to bacon… here are a couple screen shots of the other bacon products for sale on Think Geek – and the breadcrumb places this as a subcategory under “caffeine.” Is bacon a caffeine product?
