Bacon Obsession: You had us at “Bacon”

This is what makes America the greatest nation in the world

There’s not much to say about this, other than the obvious: bacon-flavored sunflower seeds might be the best invention since sliced bread. (Speaking of, prior to sliced bread, to what did people compare great things? Ponder that and let us know.)

Here’s a fun little tip for you: when you’re on a long road trip and getting sleepy, rolling down the window, turning up the air and cranking up the radio are all the wrong solutions. You see, all of those things only tax your autonomic nervous system, thereby making you sleepier. What’s needed is muscle movement. They say that getting out and walking around to get the blood flowing is a good way to go. But what if you’re on a deadline?

The answer: sunflower seeds. The act of taking the seeds from the bag, putting them in your mouth, removing the seeds from the shells and then removing the empty shell is just enough activity to keep you awake and focused for the drive. Sure your tongue will look like you borrowed it from one of those shrunken voodoo heads by the time you get to your destination, but at least you’ll still have a tongue…and a head to contain it!

Adding bacon only makes it better.

Thanks to RSM reader (and bona fide rocket scientist) Scott Harmening for the tip!

  1. I might develop a taste for seeds if they’re bacon flavored. My human likes both and liked your tip.
