dennys-baconaliaWe at Bacon Sports are committed to bringing you the best the bacon world has to offer. We don’t want you wasting your straight cash homey on something subpar. When new bacon creations hit the market place we will be here judging on our B.A.C.O.N scale.

B – Was the bacon the star of the show like Lebron James or did it fail to deliver like (insert #RandomAthlete) in a big game.
A – Was it appealing? Did it catch your eye like a hot chick eating bacon while wearing a jersey?
C – Was the cost fair or do you feel you overpaid like Saints did to draft Ricky Williams?
O – Did you have an oh my god reaction like you do when Megatron makes a sick one handed, toe tapping grab?
N – Is this something you think you’ll need to have again in the immediate future?

A slice of bacon can be earned in each category which will factor in to our final overall rating. A perfect score is five slices of bacon.

It is March which means spring is in the air but not at Denny’s where the air is full with the delicious smell of bacon. Denny’s Baconalia is back for their third installment and just like the Rocky movie franchise it keeps getting better.

All these bacon dishes to choose from had me wanting to order every single one and gorge myself like I was competing in the Nathan’s Hot dog eating contest. Like Mr Perfect leaving his foot on the ropes while someone is trying to pin him, I’m a crafty vet so I decided to spread the bacon goodness over multiple visits so as to maximize my enjoyment.

The first item to be put under the spotlight of my bacon judging scale is the Maple Bacon Milkshake. When I told my family I was going to Denny’s specifically for that shake I thought they were about to have an intervention.

Bacon – With the first sip my taste buds were greeted with smokiness of the bacon and the sweetness of maple. The bacon delivered a slam dunk to my pallet. Slice earned.

Appeal – It looked like a glass of mud with whip cream on top. You could put the shake on Carmen Electra and it still wouldn’t look good. No slice for you.

Cost – The cost was just under four bucks which in most places wouldn’t get you half a glass of beer. Slice earned

OMG – I was so overcome with emotions that I stood up screaming Wooo!! like I was the Nature Boy Ric Flair while trying to rip my shirt off like the Hulkster. This was disturbing to the cast of Cocoon at the table next to me who were just trying to enjoy their Moons Over My Hammy. Slice earned.

Need – Remember back in the day when you went on a date with a chick and as soon as you got home you felt the need to see her again? She was all you thought about. That’s how I felt with the Maple Bacon Milkshake. I couldn’t get it out of my head and even went back and ordered another one at five in the morning. From the way the lady looked at me I thought I forgot to put pants on again. You haven’t lived unless you dropped trou at Denny’s. Slice earned.

The Maple Bacon Milkshake is a must try for any bacon loving fanatic. It gets a four slices of bacon rating!

I will be back to review more tasty bacon items as long as the arteries are willing and the cholesterol doesn’t rise.
