The other day I was complaining about how hard it is to do Christmas shopping for men. One of the guys in the office was like “Does he like bacon?”. I was like “Yeah, he loves bacon, he even goes crazy just at the scent of it cooking in the pan”. To which he responded “Perfect, get him a bacon scented candle!”
After laughing for a solid 15min, I decided to do some web searching to check out if something like this actually exists. And true’s Bob, let me tell you about ManCans!
ManCans is the brainchild of Hart, a 13 year old boy who started the company with only $100 which he saved up from delivering newspapers. These candles aren’t your normal girly crap – these candles are made for REAL MEN. Scents from the ManCans range include: Bacon, Fresh cut grass, Campfire, Dirt, Coffee, Hot Cocoa, Grandpa’s pipe, New York style pizza, Sawdust and New Mitt (I’m assuming that’s a baseball mitt).
ManCans are made from recycled soup cans and Hart donates the soup from the cans as well as a portion of his proceeds to a local soup kitchen. I love this idea! But sadly you can only order it from the US, so I knew I didn’t have enough time to get it here by Christmas.
The whole bacon candle discussion then took a dip into the gutter as the same guy then also mentioned that he had hear about bacon flavoured lube! I was like no ways and I was back on Google…
And Ta da!!!
Even better is their sales pitch:
You’ve always been a lover of bacon.
Now you can be a bacon lover,
with baconlube™, the world’s first
bacon-flavored personal lubricant
and massage oil.
Hahahahahahahahahahaha! But wait, it gets better… check out one of their ads:
At just $11.99 per bottle, it’s a total steal. So ja, a bit too late for this year. But maybe some options for next year. You’re welcome.
