COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Come get your bacon, hot out of the vending machine!
The Ohio Pork Council announced they are launching their own Bacon Vending Machine. Yeah you read that right, a Bacon Vending Machine. The vending machine is located in the Animal Science Building at the Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, and will be available for students until December 13th. Inside you'll find bacon strips and bacon bits.
The bacon was donated by Hormel, Sugardale, and Smithfield, and all the money made from the machine will go towards the meat science program.
“The Bacon Vending Machine is a unique and fun way for the Ohio Pork Council to support Ohio State students and promote the pork industry at the same time,” said President-Elect Dave Shoup, Ohio Pork Council.
So how much will it set you back? A dollar per bacon item.
So if you're a parent concerned with your child cramming during finals week and not eating, no worries, now they can fill up on bacon.
