It is our attention that Ohio State University now has a bacon machine. The technology was installed in animal science building at the University College for Food, Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, and it serves servings of ready-to-eat bacon for $ 1 each. These basic facts have led me to ask many questions about what really happens.
The bacon machine is very real, by the way. Ohio pork is responsible for installing the wonder and the organization told me in an email that the machine has been "very well received on campus". But still my questions.
1. How does it work?
On the basis of available information, it appears that you make money into the machine and get ready to eat bacon in return.
2. Is this real bacon?
That is. The bacon is supplied by Sugardale Foods, Hormel Foods and Smithfield Foods.
3. Do vending machines have food for bacon?
Apparently not. The Ohio Pork Council says that bacon is ready to eat. Bacon enthusiasts will know that this is not a revolutionary invention. Pre-cooked bacon has been on the market for a while. It's great on salads, sandwiches and as a snack. You can even buy ready-to-eat bacon in bulk on Amazon.
4. How much bacon buys $ 1?
More than you might think. For $ 1, customers can choose either a box of 12 bacon slices or a bag of bacon bits.
5. Who takes advantage of this bacon machine?
While the machine was installed by the Ohio Pork Council, all profits from the bacon machine go directly to the Ohio State Meat Sciences program.
6. Who maintains the bacon machine?
Students from the Ohio State Meat Sciences program are responsible for stacking, restocking and maintaining this delicious meat machine.
7. What does Ohio State think about all this?
Well, obviously, the university has supported the addition of a bacon machine on campus. "The meat science program is committed to collaborating with the Ohio Pork Council through the Bacon Vending Machine project," said Lyda Garcia, a lecturer at the Department of Animal Research, Local News. "Spent" can be an understatement for local bacon enthusiasts.
8. Is the bacon machine permanent?
The bacon machine currently installed on Ohio State is a temporary treatment. The machine will be on campus until 13 December. The Ohio pork told Gizmodo in an email: "The future of this bacon machine is still unknown, we can see it again, or maybe not. The time will tell!"
9. Why does this happen?
Why has not it happened before?
