Don’t Sizzle Fat, Sizzlean!


I am a fan of bacon. My Grandmother made some might good stuff on cold winter mornings. It fueled the long walks to school and added some fat and protein to my normal all sugar breakfast. She bought the A&P or Shoprite brands and I was well aware of this, but for some reason, whenever she would bring over the bacon, I would say to her, “Move over bacon…now their is something meatier! Don’t sizzle fat! Sizzlean!”


This long suffering lady would roll her eyes and sit down a table and light up a smoke. I know exactly how the Sizzlean people got into my head. With constant commercials that promised bacon that was more meaty and delicious. With a promise like that, I really was powerless to resist.
