And then God made Bacon

Thank you God for Bacon. Thank you for its juicyness, yumminess, and mouth watering ability.

So today, I found out that my parents have really been lying to me this whole time. I’m not going to lie, Beggin’ Strips are WHERE ITS AT, but today I got to eat the real thing. Real bacon. At Merritts.


So I walk up to Merritt’s Store and Grill, home of the famous BLT’s, and knew that it was going to be an all time favorite. I could smell the bacon from across the street and my little puppy brain almost couldn’t handle it.

After I ordered my sandwich, I had to wait in line for the yummy goodness. Waiting just about killed me because OMG it’s bacon people. But then, it was here.

I don’t know whether to cry because it’s so beautiful or to eat it in one bite. 

BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON BACON. You know that commerical for Beggin’ Strips that goes along the lines of “OH MY GOD IT’S BACON I LOVE YOU”? Yeah, well that was me today.

I chose the latter. All mine.

So Mom really has been holding out on me this whole time. She was supposed to just get me one piece of bacon but when she was busy looking at her camera, I decided to eat the entire sandwich… whoops #sorrynotsorry.  I even tried to snatch some of hers, too, but lord knows what happens if you try to eat your woman’s food.IMG_0568 (1).jpg

You could say that checking this item off of the UNC Bucket List was very rewarding for me! Not so much for my mom (she said I already have some major stinky toots…) *shrugs shoulders*

Thank you Merritt’s for the best bacon in the world and for being such a wonderful place many UNC students love.

With sour dough bread and bacon toots,
Holden the Golden
