For a while, loving bacon was the anti-foodie food trend: snobbery (what, you don't like BACON? I guess you've never had the good stuff) disguised as egalitarianism (everyone can afford it; everyone loves it). Ostentatiously declaring one's love for, and consuming large quantities of, bacon (and its partner-in-trend, pork belly) became a sign of joie de vivre, an indication that you were spontaneous, fun, up for anything. Suggesting that a battered, deep-fried, bacon-wrapped bacon sandwich might not be the subtlest or most enjoyable food experience, conversely, meant you were a killjoy. And suggesting that massive bacon consumption might have health implications made you a food Nazi—one step up from a granola eater or, worse, a vegan.

Thankfully, baconmania has almost run its course. Trends inevitably go through their phases—early adoption, buzz, general excitement, overexposure—and bacon is in its terminal stage, clinging to relevance, grasping at any opportunity to cash in on its dwindling cachet as its 15 minutes come to an end. (Swine flu is not transmitted via pork consumption, though it doesn't make it sound very appetizing.)

The End of Baconmania by Erica C. Barnett - Seattle Food & Drink - The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper

i myself haven't touched pork belly since the summer of 2010.

i suppose it's time for all of us now to move on and douse our popcorn with virgin coconut oil.

If you're going to be properly elitist, then at least spell it macaron.

I remember seeing an episode of Iron Chef once (the Japanese one) where the theme ingredient was some kind of pork and the Iron Chef made an ice cream out of it for his dessert course. One of the judges giggled, in breathless-prepubescent-girl overdub, "I was afraid this would be too strong. But you have endeavored well to preserve the subtle taste" or something like that. That show was a hoot.

What the French call a 'macaron' is usually a sandwich cookie. But the names are related, and all cookies by that name(s) do have in common being based on ground nuts and egg whites.

The thing the French eat are macarons. The thing Americans eat are macaroons. But since Irvine said he like the French ones, I'd think he meant macarons. (Which are amazing, BTW.)

From my last trip to Paris:

I don't care whether the bacon's real or not, that sounds absolutely disgusting.

*Isn't a bacon person*

I've seen it spelled both ways.

But, yes, I was talking about the French macaron, but I greatly enjoy macaroons.

My 10th anniversary is coming up at work (holy shit, ten years, when the hell did I gain a career???), and instead of a cake, I asked for macarons from a bakery we often use for cakes and the like.

There weren't prices on the menu though, so hopefully it won't turn out they're way more expensive than a cake. Because that would rule to have those.

I don't like macaroons. I once had a bag of them hit me in the balls at a party

I don't think I've ever had a macaroon.
