Spam Lip Glaze? Yes, this exists
Here is a taste from my column in today's paper. I lead off with a Hormel product that I can imagine Miss Piggy using.
Check out the print edition for more details, including how well such a lip balm is selling.

Pucker up with pork-flavored lips.
Austin's Hormel Foods, known for its iconic Spam canned pork, rolled out Spam Lip Glaze balm in early August.
For between $1.95 to $2.99 a tube, fans of Minnesota's favorite canned meat can keep their lips soft and meaty with a Spam-flavored balm.
"Rubbing meat on your face is a good way to get noticed, but probably for all the wrong reasons. But what if you do it because you really want to taste meat, but not eat it? Well, grab yourself some Spam Lip Glaze and you can rub the flavor of meat on your lips without getting weird stares from having bacon hanging from your cheeks."
That's how ThinkGeek.Com describes the latest quirky product that Hormel has branded with the Spam logo.
