There Is Now a Dating App for Bacon Lovers

A free iOS app that connects users with other bacon lovers nationwide

Oscar Mayer‘s latest gimmick is a dating app to help bacon lovers meat one another. The puns are endless, as one of tag lines for this program, aptly dubbed Sizzl, is “giving new meaning to the term ‘bacon-wrapped dates.'”

The free iOS app allows users to create a profile that answers these questions:

What kind of bacon do you love the most?

What type of bacon do you prefer?
Hardwood smoked for a really long time
Thick Cut, because more is more
Maple and sweet like me
Lower Sodium!

If a friend tried to serve you bacon flavored with liquid sodium, you’d…
Stick it in their eye
Eat it politely, even though it’s clearly not that good
Discreetly crumble it in your napkin

How do you like your bacon cooked?

If you’re on a date and there’s one strip of bacon left, you…
Take it, obviously
Generously give it away
Split it

The app uses GPS to find other app users locally or nationwide, and similar to the way Tinder works, users “like” photos they find smokin’ (we’re talking about bacon after all), and if both “like” each other’s profiles, they are directed to a messaging platform where they can get to know one another.

The app will be available to download for six months. No word on whether the Wienermobile will provide transportation to first dates.
