Bacon Scented Air Freshener

Forget that new car smell, it's the aroma of bacon that truly makes owning a car pleasurable.

I hope you haven't already wasted money on this. I saw it in the catalog and with great excitement ordered some, and it was crap. It didn't smell like much of anything, and if you put your nose right up to it and inhaled deeply, you could smell ... well, something, but nothing like bacon, alas. What a disappointment this was.

In order to alleviate your disappointment, all I can tell you to do is to take 16 big plump dates, pit them, fill the pits with a chunk of Parmagiano-Reggiano and wrap each stuffed date with half a slice of thick-cut applewood-smoked bacon. Into a 500°F oven for about 12 minutes, or until the bacon is crisp. I can't begin to tell you, just for starters, how fabulous of an aroma this will create.

This should make you feel much better.

Well, ... er I believe it was meant as a joke type gift. I have a handful of them and they smell AWFUL. I keep them on the wall here in my office next to my meat stickers. Dr. B.

Oh, it's definitely a joke gift, but they least they could have done is make it smell SOMETHING like bacon. Our dog's "Beggin' Strips" bacon-scented treats smell much more like bacon than these things. It shouldn't be all that difficult.

If they can make a Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean taste like dirt, earwax or vomit, surely they can make a piece of cardboard smell like bacon! Food and aroma chemists, back to the drawing board!
