NEW YORK — It's an age-old truth that everything goes better with bacon; but the world will now learn if that truth includes coronavirus protection.

The geniuses at Hormel Foods have come up with the most magical bacon-inspired creation: The Bacon-Scented Face Mask.

It may sound too good to be true, but it certainly smells wonderful.

The Black Label Breathable Bacon face masks feature “the latest in pork-scented technology with two-ply multi-fiber cloth to keep the delicious smell of bacon always wrapped around your nose," according to Yahoo!.

The masks are perfect for those days when wearing PPE just isn't as much fun as, well, it's never much fun. But the Black Label Breathable Bacon face mask may now make staying safe from COVID-19 a delicious part of everyone's day.

“We’re continually focused on innovation – from new products, to marketing and distribution – all in an effort to deliver new and exciting ways to experience and enjoy BLACK LABEL Bacon,” Nick Schweitzer, Senior Brand Manager at Hormel. “In 2020, that means connecting everyone’s favorite bacon scent to the year’s ‘it’ accessory, and in doing so, bring BLACK LABEL Bacon closer to our fans.”

But before you rush out and speed through traffic, the bacon face masks are not available at stores. The only way to score this incredible piece of bacon technology is to win them by entering a contest at

The contest ends on Oct. 28, with winners being announced on Nov. 4.

Even if you don't win, you can still be a winner as Hormel will donate one meal to Feeding America for every contest entry up to 10,000 meals.
