Bacon-scented pillowcases are here!

Created by J&D Foods, the pork-inspired pillowcase uses “advances in printing technology we stole from NASA to allow the scent of bacon to permeate your dreams and expand your mind,” according to the company website.

Benefits include “happier dreams of breakfast past, effortless, overnight weight lost, and dramatic increases in your intelligence.”

The Washington-based company was founded by two friends, Justin and Dave, after they won $5,000 on ABC’s “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” The pair spent the earnings creating their first product: bacon salt.

“In just five days we sold all 6,000 jars of bacon salt,” the company says. “We soon realized that the worldwide demand for a bacon-flavored seasoning was more immense than we could have ever imagined.”

The bacon-scented pillowcase sells for $12.99, and the company also sells bacon deodorant, bacon popcorn, and a bacon coffin.

A Map of the Most Googled ‘Distinct’ Thanksgiving Recipes Broken Down by State

The New York Times has a map of the United States detailing the most “distinct” Thanksgiving recipes Googled by each state. The results were compiled by Google, tossing out obvious choices like turkey and stuffing, instead focusing on unique foodstuffs, such as “frog eye salad” in the Rocky Mountain States and the “pig pickin cake” of North Carolina. The map was created in part due to fallout from a recent Thanksgiving map designed by the paper to reflect “recipes that evoke each of the 50 states.”

What the First Thanksgiving Meal Probably Looked Like in 1621

A traditional Thanksgiving dinner usually consists of (at the very least) a turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, however, as Guardian Food points out, the very first Thanksgiving feast in 1621 looked a lot different.

The only written account says that they ate five deer and some birds, probably a swan or a duck. Wild turkeys were harder to hunt down, but shellfish were easy to find, so they probably made it into the feast. …Cranberries were around, but sugar wasn’t. …As for potatoes, they were mostly still in South America. Stuffing made kind of an appearance, but it was pretty basic.
