TNB Night Owl – Bacon Vending

Where do you go when you want some bacon?  

Apparently, to Ohio State.

The university has installed a vending machine dedicated exclusively to bacon in their Animal Science Building At the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.  

Normally it’s impossible to find a single piece of bacon in a vending machine.  People worry about things like “shelf life” and “hygiene” instead of things like “deliciousness”.  Not at Ohio State!

From the Columbus Dispatch:

The Ohio Pork Council, a trade group for the state’s pork producers, is sponsoring the vending wonder and received bacon donations from the biggest names in pork belly: Smithfield, Hormel and Sugardale. There are strips and bacon bits (each $1) in the machine, which will be stocked by students in Ohio State’s meat science program, which will receive the proceeds of the vending machine sales.

I’m certain everyone’s wondering what this wonderful machine looks like.  The answer is that it looks like… a vending machine.  Just with unusually flavorful meat.

You’ll have to move soon, though, because it’s only there for a short time.  On December 13th, it’s being removed.  Hopefully to a place very close to me.

Question of the night: What’s your favorite bacon dish?
