Inventors Matty Sallin and Daniel Bartolini seemed to share my sentiments, for they have created the Wake n’ Bacon; an alarm clock that wakes you with the smell of fresh, sizzling bacon. After depositing frozen slices of bacon in the Wake n’ Bacon the night before, you can be sure to awake to the tantalizing smell of bacon!
