Bacon Condoms, Sunscreen, and Mouthwash: Which Are Real?


Our obsession with this meat candy made from the flesh of pigs never wanes. In fact, it seems the more bacon we have, the more we want.

Take for example baconlube. The brainchild of J&D's Foods, the lube, which ironically is vegan and sells for $11.99, created a media frenzy when it was launched about a year ago.

Now, J&D is launching bacon condoms and bacon sunscreen.

We spoke with Justin Esch, the "J" in J&D (the "D" stands for partner Dave Lefkow) about the new products.
