Gov Christie: Grand Marshall for Bacon Bazaar Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Feb 13, 2014, 07:33 PM

A big-time politician will be the grand marshall for a bacon bazaar in Atlantic City. Gov. Chris Christie will host New Jersey's Bacon Festival. 

According to the Houston Chronicle, "Get ready for bacon like you've never eaten, drunk or worn it before. Bacon milkshakes. Chocolate-covered bacon shaped like roses. Bacon-flavored toothpaste, dental floss and lip balm. Bacon bourbon, margaritas, beer and vodka. Bacon ice cream sundaes. A BLT sandwich with a full pound of bacon."

Gov Chrisitie is not alone when it comes to his love for a double BLT sandwich on toast. Nadina Fornia of Egg Harbor Township is quoted as saying that, "bacon is like heaven. If you're going to die, die with bacon on your lips and a BLT in each hand."

As reported by the Houston Chronicle, "The idea of a bacon festival is not as far-fetched as it might sound. Americans eat about 1.5 billion pounds of bacon a year, according to the National Pork Board. And the website counted nearly 30 bacon festivals around the country from late April through December 2013, many of whose tickets sold out in minutes."

Gov. Christie is expected to gulp down on bacon milkshakes.
