I'm having the meat sweats over here while I'm reading all about these amazing bacon face masks. Truly, this is genius and whoever came up with this needs a raise. (Keep reading.)

So she and I and about a bajilliondy other bacon lovers signed up for one. And didn't get one. Oh well, we thought. We tried.

Then this morning...THIS happened.

Our DME (Digital Managing Editor) Aaron, surprised us with our own Hormel Bacon Scented Masks!  He did some behind the scenes dealing and boom.  So he surprised us (well, more me than Jessica because she's tricky like that).

HORMEL BACON SCENTED MASK "TASTE TEST"

They're good!  The scent of bacon isn't overpowering. It's like you're  in your bedroom and you can smell bacon cooking downstairs. As you can see in the video, we were relieved about this. Even a good smell becomes a bad smell when there is too much of it.

So thank you Aaron, thank you Hormel, and thank you bacon!

Listen to James Rabe and Jessica Williams 6a to 10a on Y-105 FM's Early Morning Show.
