National Sandwich Day: Eat a Bacon Sandwich!

long bar

November 3rd is National Sandwich Day! No joke. HolidayInsights.com is amazing for finding every “bizarre and unique” holiday. Every day is covered and there are even all-month celebrations.

Let’s get back to sandwiches… Even Today.com covered the holiday in 2011, listing some very unique and delicious twists on sandwiches. But what about bacon? We need to concentrate on the importance of a good sandwich – Bacon.

I once again tracked down a collection of bacon sandwiches for you to enjoy on the National Sandwich Day:

RebublicofBacon.com always has a great selection of bacon news. They of course had a nice list of some great Bacon Sandwiches, including: Egg Sandwich with Spinach, Brie & Maple Bacon, Candied Bacon Sandwich, Grilled Cheese, Apple & Bacon Sandwich, Bacon, Fig & Pork Sandwich, and the Bacon, Pear and Brie Sandwich.

April Fools’ Bacon!

April Fools Day!!! Today is a day that you either despise with every fiber of your being or a day you look forward to and plan for all year. I think it has a lot to do with what side of the joke you’re usually on. I, of course, searched the world wide web for bacon findings associated with April Fools and pranks.

NOT A JOKE BUT SHOULD BE:

J & D's has bacon shaving cream, bacon coffins, bacon baby formula, bacon weight loss drink, bacon sun screen, bacon lube, and bacon deodorant.  I'm really hoping most of these listed as "out of stock" are just jokes.  But I know for a fact that some of their other products that do indeed exist SHOULD be a joke.
