Pork lovers now have the face mask of their dreams.

Wearing face masks have become a daily and oftentimes constant part of people’s lives. To make this necessary (but, at times, frustrating) measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 more enjoyable, Hormel Foods has launched a limited-edition bacon-scented face mask.

The company is calling this face mask “breathable bacon” and says it features “the latest in pork-scented technology.” 

The masks are made of a two-ply multi-fiber which keep the aroma from escaping the mask so that you can always smell bacon no matter where you go!


In addition to the masks featuring the wonderful smell of bacon, the print on the mask includes the Black Label Bacon logo, as well as pictures of bacon.

Bacon lovers everywhere have a chance to get their own “breathable bacon” mask while supplies last. Now through October 28, fans can visit www.BreathableBacon.com and enter for a chance to receive a free, limited-edition breathable bacon mask. Hormel Foods will then donate one meal to Feeding America for every entry, up to 10,000 meals. 

Hormel also offers this vital advice while wearing the mask:

  • Nose exposure allows essential bacon scent to escape.
  • Do not attempt to eat Hormal Black Label Breathable Bacon.
  • Breathable Bacon smells great. Don't sleep on it.
  • Keep facial orifices snugly covered to enjoy maximum whiffage.
