I only started "reading" this thread today as the flowchart was too small to appreciate so I just kept skipping it. I am now glad I read the whole thing.

I found two more entries for the thread:

Edit: I found something else!

CFB I just wanted you to know I went to Krogers today and they had bacon on sale for 99cents for a pretty good sized pack. It was normally like 3+ dollars a pack.

I bought 50 some packs hehe and thought of you.

Brush it all over filet mignons and scallops before grilling!

Bigritchie...Costco sells four pounds for about $8. Darn good deal and darn good bacon, although I prefer their "low sodium" bacon since their regular is a bit too salty for my tastes.

I've been buying bacon (and most other meat and eggs) from local farms; I would love to find some locals doing specialty stuff.

Bacon flavored vodka? YesButNoButYes: Bacon-flavored Vodka

From the comments: "I'd like my martini bacon, not stirred".
