Bacon-Flavored Mouthwash (LOL, What?!)
« on: April 03, 2013, 07:35:22 AM »
Okay, I'll let you guys know right off, this is fake.  But the day before April 1st (this date is significant), I stumbled across a web commercial for Popular Mouthwash Brand.  Bacon-flavored mouthwash "For breath that sizzles".  ;D

It turns out that it was an April Fool's Day prank that was put up a day or two before the actual day (I think), so that while a few FB friends suspected, the fact that it wasn't advertised on the actual day gave it some possible credibility.  So, it was a joke.  Frankly, I don't know if I'm disappointed or relieved.  I would have bought it either as a gag gift or just so that I could say, "Yeah, I tried it, it's bad.".  It really sounded gross, but the latent kid in me was like, "Hmm...".  Apparently, other people wanted to buy it too, because I heard about people going to the store and getting upset when they were either told the product didn't exist or that it had been a prank.

I really feel sorry for the employees who had to field those questions and the possible customer tantrums, but the whole thing got me thinking about other ridiculous products out there. 

Bacon-flavored mouthwash...Perhaps the world just isn't ready!  ::)

Or pizza flavored Tic Tacs. I found out that was a joke as well!

Oh, thank goodness. I saw that and am embarrassed that I did give it credence -- but after the bacon-flavored vodka, who can blame me?

I can't.  I was half-convinced myself, and it was only the date that made me leery.

I saw that on FB.  My only thought was "More annoying spam" and hid it (and I didn't believe it was real for a second -- forgot about April Fool's Day).

Sorry, should've quoted -- I meant I didn't believe the bacon-flavored mouthwash.

I saw that too and the first thing I thought of was "ewww, gross" and "What won't they bacofy?"

Holy cow...I clicked the links, and found an amazing array of bacon-flavored/scented products, including gum and candy canes!  And the bacon gum led me to pickle gum!  :P  Actually, now I'm curious...but not that curious.

When will someone deep fry the pickle gum?
