Are you a single adult looking to connect with that special person who shares your values, cultural interests as well as your love for bacon? Well Oscar Mayer may finally have the dating app you’ve been waiting for. “Sizzl”—which is actually available in the App store—connects users with other local “matches” based on just how much they love bacon products and how they like it prepared. And unlike Tindr, in which users “swipe” right on connections they are interested in contacting, Sizzl requires eager daters to hold their finger on the screen to demonstrate just how sizzling their interest is. We’ve reached a point of no return with this whole bacon craze. It’s like Jim Gaffigan and Aziz Ansari teamed up to make the ultimate ironic iPhone app.
