The question that many women casually shopping for perfume ask more than any other is this,”what is the scent that drives men wild.” After years of research the anwer is definitive. It the bacon. Now imagine a perfume of that fragrance. The survey of definitely not done in India.

The Bacon day or the international bacon day is an unofficial observance on a Saturday before labor day in the united states.

As far as my vegetarian knowledge of  bacon goes–Bacon is a meat product prepared from pig and usually cured using large quanities of salt, and packed either in brine or dry packing.

What interests me is the Fakon or Vacon that is the veggie alternative to bacon. This is high in protein and fiber yet low in fat and no cholesterol at all.

Fakons can be made at home by marinating strips of tempeh or tofu in various spices and then deep frying. Raw food aficionados use coconut meat as bacon substitute. Now that would be an interesting option.

Another Bacon substitute is Bacconaise, a vegetarian, kosher mayonnaise based product.
