Bacon has become very popular in recent years, with everything from bacon candy to bacon toothpicks.
This my friends, is Uncle Oinker's Gummy Bacon.
Gummy candy "shaped like bacon" with a strawberry flavour.
First of all, the name is awesome and the packaging is crazy.
A pig that's also a farmer who wants to give you his gummy bacon.
The packaging even has a Bacon Viewing Windows so you can look at how the product really looks before making a purchase.
Much better than exaggerated graphics of the product.
The package includes four slices of gummy bacon, that kind of looks like bacon.
They are supposed to be fat and cholesterol free, but i don't really trust a pig who is also a farmer...
The slices smells of strawberry, but it's a very chemical smell.
The taste is unfortunately pretty bland and they hardly taste of strawberrys at all.
Still it's not everyday you get to try gummy bacon, that kind of tastes like strawberrys.
They should have gone all the way and gone for bacon flavour instead.
That would have been crazy.

Tomorrow is Midsummer's Eve in Sweden.
On this day in Sweden, we eat the year's first potatoes and soused herring with chives and sour cream.
What is more important, is the desert, which is strawberries and milk.
And what suits better to try today, than the Pepsi Pink.
Of course flavoured with strawberries and milk.
This is a limited edition flavour from 2011, of course from Japan.
First of all, it's really pink.
You can't really see it in the pictures, but believe me, it's PINK.
I can't really place what it smells like, but it doesn't really smell like strawberries.
More like sweet and tangy.
But if the scent is a disappointment, the taste isn't.
It tastes a lot like strawberries in milk. Very tasty.
It gives you a nostalgic feeling from when you were a child and couldn't wait to eat a bowl of strawberries and milk.
Even after a few gulps, the taste of strawberries is really strong.
I enjoyed this one, but i enjoy weird things, so you have to make up your own mind...

I've written about Aero chocolate twice before.
The regular bubbly chocolate and a christmas version with mint flavour.
And now I get to taste it as a drink. My life is now complete (well... not really).
The package contains four bags of hot choclatey powder goodness.
Perfect if you have friends over or if you are greedy.
You're supposed to put the powder in a mug and add boiling water to really see the air bubbles forming.
I tried this together with a dear friend and we both tought the powder had a faint minty smell.
I was the only one brave enough to taste the powder and it tastes kind of like Aero chocolate.
Adding the water made it even better. The room was filled with a minty smell.
And as you can see in the picture, the water really creates great chocolate air bubbles.
We both enjoyed this beverage, filled with a chocolate and minty flavour.
Kind of refreshing, which is weird because the chocolate has quite a heavy texture.
It feels like the drink melts in your mouth and after youre done you are left with a great minty aftertaste.
Oh... And I must mention the box artwork. It's quite lovely.
Also, my Manny Calavera mug is so awesome!

Is it too late for breakfast? Or maybey we should call this a snack? For brunch?
What I'm trying to say, is that I don't know at what time of the day you're supposed to eat this.
Yes, this i yogurt, with popcorn dipped in toffee... I'll let that sink in.
Another weird part is that this product isn't even from America, it's from Germany.
Mcennedys is a product of Lidl which is a German company.
Anyway, it's plain yogurt with small, small bits of toffee popcorn in it.
It looks pretty disgusting and not at all appetizing.
Smells a lot of toffee but not as much of popcorn.
The same goes for the taste, super sweet toffee flavour.
As is customary with popcorn, they get stuck in your teeth ;)
This was kind of a downer, weird is my alley, but this was to sweet and i still don't know at what time of the day I'm supposed to eat it.
