Wake Up & Smell The Bacon: The Unboxing

So after diligently waiting the full 8 weeks for the delivery of Oscar Mayer’s bacon-scented alarm device, it has finally arrived.  Upon opening the package, there is a generic congratulation note from Oscar Mayer’s bacon cut and design chief (whatever that means) reminding me to download their app before using the device.  Also included is a quick start guide and a nondescript black box that houses the actual device.

Distinctively lacking in any bacon-ness

Inside the black box is the dongle that produces the smell of bacon, along with a USB charging cable (didn’t expect that), and a bacon scent dropper to refill the device when it runs out.  I wasn’t sure what to expect when I was furiously trying to win this thing and didn’t give much thought as to how it would work, but I guess this makes the most sense.  Surprisingly the device needs to be charged before use but given that the only point of contact it has with the phone is via the headphone jack, it needs to get juiced up somehow.

Now we're baconing
Now we’re baconing

I’ll be testing just how bacon-y this modern marvel is and posting my thoughts this coming week.  I foresee myself stocking up on bacon the next time I go grocery shopping…
