For those of you who consider yourselves to be bacon enthusiasts, this post in Battle of the Foods should serve as a decent bacon glossary. It's basically a highlight reel of bacon-related posts from the earlier days of this thread.

Not appearing in said post, but something from the very first page that has not been discussed much is Torani bacon syrup.

If you have mixed feelings towards it, that's probably the correct reaction.

As for the seaweed chips of all varieties, I'm sure they're delicious, as seaweed always is, but the way it looks will always remind me of veggie Pirate's Booty.

If you're wondering how vile this stuff really is, watch how the bag in the second image vomits it up onto a paper towel. Not even the bag it comes in wants veggie Pirate's Booty.

I really want those seaweed pringles, but I think they may only be available in Asia. Bummer.


That is unfortunately correct, but that's not to say you can't buy seaweed and eat it with regular Pringles.

That's a lot of bacon. I wonder where I can find that bacon marmalade. That would go great in an omelette.

At least I'm not the only one. Now I know salted caramel isn't the weirdest flavor they have.

Salted caramel actually sounds good to me. Is that messed up?

I would much rather have kimchi Pringles.


Over spring break, I bought a jar of King's kimchi at the local grocery store. I only got through about half of it, because it didn't have the right amount of spice for kimchi. The store only had spicy (shown below) and mild. I figured spicy would be too spicy, so I went with mild, but it was too mild. It wasn't bad--I would sit and eat it out of the jar and once I even put it on toast--but next time I eat kimchi, it's going to be from a Korean restaurant.

veggie Pirate's Booty.


I tried that stuff when I was maybe 7 or 8. Just the smell of it was enough to trigger a minor flash headache (lasted a fraction of a second each time). Never again.

Kimchi is variable depending on where you go. Some places make it so hot it's inedible, whereas others apparently don't make it quite hot enough, though the latter is much less common in restaurants.

This kimchi burger was posted about a million pages back, but as I recall, nobody really talked about it, so here it is making its second MBFF 2013 appearance.

A cousin of the kimchi burger, on the kimchi side of course, is the kimchi and bacon pizza, which is so spectacular, the image of it will not fit on the page.

Only one slice at a time can fit on the page.

Spam with cheese? I don't see any cheese, unless....did they find a way to mix cheese into the little individual bits of spam? Or is the cheese just not melted for some reason and instead in the form of small cubes?

My favorite part about that picture is how they chose to advertise it: in a flaky dough shell with green bell peppers mixed in. Because that's how people who buy spam with cheese are going to eat it.

Also, tinned full monty:


It wouldn't be much if it wasn't for those large sausages. They make the name so much more fitting, so to speak.

I was also unclear as to what a bacon steak was, as it is listed as one of the ingredients, so I looked it up, and apparently they are a thing.

I don't know what I'm more afraid of....the AIDS themselves, or how the hotdogs acquired them in the first place.

The full monty is not as inedible looking as it's alternate form, all day breakfast, which contains egg nuggets:

Lovely Spam, wonderful Spam. What about ham?

This oddity is from the Netherlands. Are these crisps weird to anyone else or am I just conservative when it comes to food?
