Oh, Baby: Bacon Formula possibly coming to a shelf near you.

Oh, Baby: Bacon Formula possibly coming to a shelf near you.

SEATTLE (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Parents are in a tizzy trying to get their hands on a sizzling new product: Bacon Baby Formula.

The geniuses at J&D Foods, who make everything bacon-flavored, played an April Fool’s trick last week by introducing “Bacon Baby Formula.”

Media outlets swore it was real and parents everywhere went hog-wild for it, requesting to get on a fake “waiting list” for the product.

J&D prankster Justin Esch never expected people to take Bacon Baby Formula seriously, so it proves how much people really love bacon.

He’s received countless emails from parents begging for samples. One duo sent a picture of their unborn baby’s ultrasound claiming they wanted to feed their kid the good stuff right out of the womb.

In the end, however, Esch says the joke is really on his company.

Because of the high demand, they may actually have to make the baby formula someday and get bacon fiends hooked while they’re young.
