Bacon Coffin Is a Delicious Way to Meet Your Maker
We'd like to tell you this product is yet another April Fool's Day prank, because the company announced it just before April 1st. But, as it turns out -- it's real, folks.
Seattle based J & D Foods are makers of a whole array of bacon-themed products. But when you make everything from bacon salt to bacon-flavored lip balms, what's left to offer your loyal bacon-loving customer after you have fed them so much fat? A bacon coffin of course.
A visit to the website lets you actually order the bacon coffin. We didn't go through with the checkout, simply because the coffin costs a whopping (and real) $2,999 (plus shipping). And as much as we love our readers (and bacon), we can't afford to spend that much money to see if this a real product to rest our greased souls in when we die.
The makers say the coffins are actually from Costco, which are then painted a smoky red color that for "Premium Bacon" look. Other modifications include a bacon air freshener for "when you get that buried-underground, not-so-fresh feeling." Great April Fool's Day prank or just plain clever marketing? We'd like to think it's a bit of both.
If you love bacon, and have the dough -- may you rest in grease.
