Don't get me wrong: I like eating bacon. I like strips of side bacon, I like slices of back bacon, and I even like bacon sandwiches (though I rarely eat them on my low-carb diet). A BLT is great, and bacon in a Caesar salad is fine with me.
I don't like bacon intruding on many other things I like though.
- I detest bacon-wrapped steak. I love steak, and I love bacon, but please don't ruin them both by putting them together.
- I detest bacon-wrapped scallops.
- I think that adding bacon to scotch is a travesty. It detracts from both the bacon and the scotch.
- Similarly, using bacon as a stir stick in any drink ruins both the bacon and the drink.
In other words, there are some things I like so much as they are that I really don't like to have their flavours adulterated by the smoky dominance of bacon flavour.
And this is just too much: bacon-scented deodorant? What a turn-off!
