Do we really need bacon flavored envelops?

mmmvelopes-illus1 Yes I am the “King of all Bacon”, but that doesn’t mean I love and/or understand every bacon related product known to man. Justin and Dave’s new product Mmmvelopes is one that I just don’t understand. I know they believe everything should taste like bacon, but I think they may have taken it too far.

Here is there justification:

Technology has given us a lot lately. The car. TV. X-rays. The refrigerator. The Internet. Heck, we even cured polio. But what have our envelopes tasted like for the last 4,000 years? Armpit, that’s what.

When they put it that way I can understand why we would want to improve the taste of envelopes. The Seinfeld episode where George’s fiance dies because she licked all the wedding invitations comes to mind. But the real problem I have with this is I can’t remember the last time I licked an envelope. The rare times I have used snail mail I just suckered someone else to close it for me.

I think the market for novelty envelopes is small but what do I know. I am sure people said the same thing about Bacon Salt and look where that has gotten J&D Foods.

Do I hate Mmmevelopes? No. Do I understand them? No. Will I buy a pack and use them? Yes.

On the rare chances that I have to use snail mail why not make it enjoyable. Once these bad boys hit the market I am going to buy a box that will last me a life time.
