Justin and Dave have some new products for the holidays.
First up is www.PowerBacon.com deodorant:
“POWER BACON deodorant is designed specifically for those with active lifestyles – or people who just sweat like pigs.
Using POWER BACON will probably make everyone drawn to you like you were the most powerful magnet on Earth. And by everyone, we mean friends, acquaintances, beautiful strangers, dogs, bears, swamp alligators, lions and even pigs. It’s like an aphrodisiac for your armpits. But use your new power wisely, because with great bacon power comes great baconsibility.
For all day meat-scented protection, apply liberally to your underarms or private areas.
Do not eat or hike in the woods without a firearm while wearing POWER BACON.”
And brace yourselves: www.SrirachaCandyCanes.com
“There’s a reason Santa comes down your chimney – he likes it hot!
So warm up your taste buds this year with J&D’s Sriracha Candy Canes. The savior of bland Asian foods is now a fiery candy cane, great for tricking your unsuspecting friends and children or enjoying after a tasty bento box.
Rumor has it that these are pretty great crushed and served over ice cream or used as as a spicy-sweet holiday cocktail stirrer. Under no circumstances should you crush these into a fine powder and inhale them up your nose. Mostly for insurance purposes, we beg you to enjoy any Rooster-Sauce inspired holiday treats responsibly.
Each box has 12 individually wrapped Sriracha Candy Canes and are proudly made in the People’s Republic of Canada.”
Deliver me three Quad Stackers stat!
That’s what you’ll be saying soon enough, once BK Delivers gets going.
MEAT CHEESE BACON REPEAT. We really knew how to live back in the aughts:

Mind you, Burger King has enough trouble in the notoriously high cost 415 without worrying about delivery, but read the news and turn the pages, below. (Looks like Oakland’s going to beat us, once again.)

You’d never see this back in the day, I’ll tell you. Back then, you’d never see this kind of sign at a fast food place.
Back then, the signs you’d see on this topic always used to say, “NOT ACCEPTING EBT” and the like.
Like at the Real Foods in Cow Hollow, for instance.
But things are changing…

And here’s the video.
“About the Bacon Coffin
Don’t be fooled by low-end, low quality burial caskets. Proudly Made in the USA, J&D’s Bacon Coffins
are top of the line and come equipped standard with all the features the discerning bacon enthusiast
would want…in the afterlife.
J&D’s Bacon Coffins are finished with a painted Bacon and Pork shading and accented with gold
stationary handles. The interior has an adjustable bed and mattress, a bacon memorial tube and is
completed in ivory crepe coffin linens.
Classy. Bacon. Coffin.
Here at J&D’s Foods we’re putting the “fun” back in funerals.

Like this. Can you see the Canadian Pavilion and the German? This is less than 10% of the exhibit hall space. It would take you hours to check out all the exhibitors:

Now if you want, you can pay your $60 to check things out for yourself, but expect to find a trade show – it’s not oriented towards consumers at all. But every last food trend you could imagine (and some you could not) is in the house and everybody’s handing out samples and related swag.
And every last nook and cranny of Moscone North and South is filled up. The place is hopping. I expected to see at least a few attendees bummed out over the state of the economy, but I didn’t. The Great Recession is Over, people.
This truly is a world-class* event, as defined.
Bon courage, people of Fancy Food Fest ’12!
*The tedious cliche “world-class” was overused in the 415 already by former Mayor Gavin Newsom and those in his administration and, now, the current Ed Lee holdover administration (which is basically the same people but with rearranged titles) has stepped up its use. IRL, not everything what touches the City and County is “world-class,” capiche? And, IRL, not everything what touches San Francisco needs to be “world-class.”
So, why don’t we save this term for events and organizations where it truly applies, like for outfits like the San Francisco Ballet (oh, the debut of Onegin kicks off the 2012 Season on January 27th, get your tickets here) for instance? All right, carry on.

As seen on the Embarcadero, fka East Street:
But don’t laugh, they control the fish supply at your favorite sushi place, I’m srsly.
“In America, first you get the sugar,* then you get the power, then you get the women.”
*Or fish, maybe that works too.
And guess what, they’re having a Matcha tonight, Thursday, October 27th, 2011 – it’s New India Cuisine from 5:00 to 9:00 PM:

And, Don’t Miss These Highlights!
And here’s how the exhibit ends in Gallery 3, all modern, with the sweetest office desk imaginable:
I’ll dig through the catalog and post more stuff later.
And oh, if you haven’t seen it, here’s the new logo for the Asian – it’s a turned A, fundamentally:
But it’s 3D, as you can see:
All right, see you there!
