How much does AM Tampa Bay love bacon?

First, it was bacon roses.

Now, it’s AM Tampa Bay host Jack Harris's quest to get some kind of a bacon festival to come to the Bay area.

One could infer – AM Tampa Bay loves BACON!

Friday, March 7, 2014, the hosts of AM Tampa Bay talked bacon for a bit. Jack would like to see a festival featuring the food favorite. This kind of event already goes on in several states around the U.S. like Michigan and Kansas. So, what would such festival be called in the Bay area? There are a bounty of options!

This debate went on for a while during the show. So the question was posed to our other listener on air and on social media. Some of the possibilities include Swinefest, Baconfest, Pigfest, and Baconalia.

Here are more of some the tweets in response…

Speaking of bacon, did you hear about this…

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Want to wake up to the sound of bacon sizzling on the stove with its aroma drawing you out of bed?

There's an app for that.

Oscar Mayer says it has created a bacon-scented app for the iPhone, developed by the Madison-based company's Institute for the Advancement of Bacon.

The company says that to emit a small puff reminiscent of bacon, the user needs an external device that plugs into the headphone jack. The app itself produces the sound of bacon sizzling in a pan.

Oscar Mayer says the aroma-producing device won't be sold in stores and that quantities are limited. the company is giving away 4,700 devices beginning Thursday.

Oscar Mayer is part of Kraft Foods Group Inc., based in Glenview, Ill.
