A new collaboration between the writer of a web comic and the company that developed bacon-flavored air has created a bizarre hot sauce-flavor lip balm.
Comic site The Oatmeal is now selling a lip balm that mimics the flavors of the popular Asian hot sauce Sriracha.
“Don’t you wish you could put the flavor of Sriracha on your lips 24 hours a day, 7 days a week?,” the site wrote in a post announcing the launch.
“NOW YOU CAN!”
“The Oatmeal teamed up with J&D’s (creators of BaconSalt and Baconnaise) to create Sriracha-flavored lip balm.”
“Not only does it moisturize your lips and protect them from the harmful rays of the sun (it’s SPF 15), but it also bombards them with a delicious firestorm of red peppers and garlic.”
“It’s like making out with some tasty napalm,” The Oatmeal promises.
The Oatmeal creator Matthew Inman has written several times about his love of Sriracha, which has become so trendy it’s been written up by the New York Times and sold by artisan vendors in Brooklyn.
The site also offers I Heart Sriracha aprons, buttons, and flamethrower print.
Previous collaborations with J&D’s have led to the release of products like bacon flavored air.
