Got a hankering for something crunchy, meaty and salty? Maybe your love of bacon could land you a sweet job!
Yes, this is actually a real job!
Extra Crispy is looking for ‘a freelance Bacon Critic to cover the bacon beat.’
To land this gig, you’ll have to submit an essay of fewer than 600 words explaining your love for the meat and sharing one favorite remembrance of your love affair with bacon.
‘The Extra Crispy Bacon Critic needs to be opinionated and thorough in his or her research, and will be expected to eventually decide which bacon is the best in the country. Other qualifications include serious writing chops, an unmistakable voice, a sense of adventure, and an insatiable hunger—for bacon.’
All entries are due to [email protected] by June 24, 2016.
The winner will get to do research, write about, obsess over and critique bacon for a three-month stint.
And maybe the best part of all, the job listing says you ‘can live anywhere in the U.S.,’ so we’re counting this one as a work-at-home job!

Which brand of bacon is best?
Consumer Reports tested 15 different brands of regular and thick-sliced uncooked bacon, precooked bacon and turkey bacon to find the best.
The king of the bacon hill? Costco Wholesale’s Kirkland Signature (regular sliced,) which is sold as four one-pound packages for $12.
Other top contenders included 16-ounce packages of Oscar Mayer (thick cut) and Walmart’s Great Value (lower sodium), which priced out at $5.50 and $4.50, respectively.
So…which brand is the best bacon brand in your opinion?
