What food could you see being added to just about anything and making it better? If your answer is bacon, you are not alone. Wondering why bacon has become so popular, we reached out to Kat Kinsman, managing editor of CNN’s Eatocracy blog.

“Bacon, the food, is, full-stop delicious, but so are plenty of other foods. Bacon, the concept, has taken on a life of its own.” It's shorthand, Kinsman said, for, “Hey, I’m a food freak, but I don’t take myself too seriously.”

"Pork, fat and salt are pretty much the antithesis of what any nutritionist would counsel you to eat" Kinsman said.

But, as Pete Wells quoted a bacon maker’s wife as saying in his 2003 James Beard Award-winning essay, "Captain Bacon," “And if I can't have bacon on my salad, I just don't care about it."

From a bacon-wrapped pork dish to the fan-favorite Bakon Vodka, we’ve got your craving covered with today’s Gotta Watch.
