iPhone alarm wakes you up with the smell of bacon

IS it your dream to be woken up by the gently wafting scent of bacon?

Meat producer Oscar Mayer claims to have created an adapter which releases the scent of frying bacon as a morning alarm.

Bacon lovers set an alarm within the official app and plug the adapter into the iPhone's headphone jack to be woken up to the sound and smell of their favourite pork treat.

Unfortunately excited fans will have to apply for one of a limited number of the devices at, as the adapter is not available to buy in shops

Applicants unlucky enough to miss out on being selected to receive a bacon device will be consoled with the iPhone app, which allows them to set an alarm to the sound of sizzling bacon alone.

Tom Bick, senior director of integrated marketing and advertising at Oscar Mayer, said the company was thrilled to bring the first-ever, bacon-scented mobile device to market, which he said gave "bacon aficionados a new reason to welcome their morning alarm clocks."

"With nearly two million mentions of #bacon on Instagram, it seems people never get tired of bacon. That’s why our team decided to develop a device to give folks what they long for most."
