(YouTube link)

Bacon smells so good that it’s even been used as an alarm clock. More than once. But what causes that delicious aroma?

Turns out there are about 150 volatile organic compounds that contribute to bacon's meaty aroma, many of them hydrocarbons and aldehydes, with some nitrogen-containing compounds thrown in for good measure.

That sounds like a lot of science, so you just might want to make a BLT to enjoy while you watch this video from Reactions. -via the Presurfer
