I Smell Bacon! Oscar Mayer Brings Smell-O-Vision to Your iPhone


No, it’s not April Fools day yet, but this new iOS device wakes you up with the scents — and sounds — of sizzling bacon. Wake Up and Smell the Bacon is a project from Oscar Mayer. Specifically, it’s the lovechild of the Oscar Mayer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon, which is an online hub for bacon innovations from the Oscar Mayer brand.

The press release describes the Bacon Scent Alarm as an innovative mobile device. And sure, we’ve heard that one many times before – but for once, they aren’t exaggerating. The Bacon Scent Alarm is the first-ever iOS device that allows folks to wake up to the heavenly smell of bacon – without having to lift a frying pan.


So how does it work? The porky plug-in is filled with bacon-scented liquid. The tiny accessory slides into the headphone jack of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod – where you pair it with the free app, set an alarm, and then bask in the heavenly bacon-filled cloud wafting your way come morning. And believe it or not, it actually smells sweeter than you might expect. And to compliment the great scents, the app will keep you entertained with great baconisms like “Time passes and civilizations crumble, but bacon is forever.”
