There are some issues that tend to be very polarizing – people are either for them or against them. In my book, bacon is one of those issues. People who love bacon, really love bacon. And people who don’t love bacon? Well, I just don’t get that kind of insanity. If you don’t love bacon, we might not be able to be friends anymore. (I kid, I kid – we will always be friends.) So when I get the chance to partner with one of my favorite brands to promote bacon in a sponsored post? I give a resounding YES!
But seriously, we do love our bacon in this house. We crumble it up and sprinkle it on our baked potatoes, we make BLT sandwiches, and we love a side of bacon next to our eggs. Bacon is yummy and keeps us full until it’s time for next meal, which hopefully also includes bacon!
Farmland Foods is encouraging all bacon lovers to forgo the cookies this year and leave bacon out for Santa. It makes sense when you think about it – the sugar in cookies might give Santa a quick boost, but they are not going to stay with him and he’s going to have that post sugar and carbs crash. We can’t have Santa fading before
he gets to my house visits all the boys and girls! The protein in bacon will help Santa keep up the stamina he needs.
But wait – by pledging to leave bacon for Santa this year you can help those in our own community who are struggling during the holiday season. Farmland and Heisman trophy winner Ron Dayne have partnered to help get the word out that for every person that pledges on social media to leave out bacon for Santa this Christmas Eve, Farmland will donate one pound of protein to Feeding America, Eastern Wisconsin – up to 25,000 pounds total. That’s a LOT of food!!
Pledging is easy peasy – just use the hashtag #BaconforSanta on your social media channels. You can learn more about the campaign here and you can also sign up for exclusive bacon content and even enter to win a Santa bacon sweater (um, YES PLEASE!!!) now through December 31.
Hear more about it from the Jolly Guy himself!!
