Oscar Meyer Wants You to Wake Up and Smell the Bacon on Your iPhone

CHICAGO (KRON) — Soon you may be able to wake up and smell the bacon, even if there’s nothing on the stove at your house.

Oscar Meyer says it has developed an iPhone app that, when you plug a special device into the headphone jack, emits the smell of cooking bacon when the alarm clock goes off.

Users also have the option of having the app say so-called “baconisms”

“Experience bacon with all your senses,” the voice says. “Like the deepest root, like the stormiest ocean, it’s briney cure endures. Bacon exceeds everything you ever imagined.”

“With nearly two million mentions of #bacon on Instagram, it seems people never get tired of bacon. That’s why our team decided to develop a device to give folks what they long for most,” said Tom Bick, senior director of integrated marketing and advertising at Oscar Mayer in a written statement. “As the category leader, Oscar Mayer is thrilled to bring the first-ever, bacon-scented mobile device to market, giving bacon aficionados a new reason to welcome their morning alarm clocks.”

If you just want to wake up to the sound of cooking bacon, you can download from the App Store but if you want to actually smell the back, you have to go to the Oscar Meyer web site and take a quiz for the chance to get a download link. Unfortunately we did not win when we tried.
