A wise man once told me "If it's free it's for me."

Another wise man once told me "Bacon makes everything better."

So by putting "free" and "bacon" together McDonald's must be the wisest food chain in the world.

For ONE day and ONE hour only, you can receive free bacon from your local McDonald's.

McDonald's is throwing a bacon bash of sorts on Tuesday January 29 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. The pork party is to celebrate the arrival of the succulent swine on three of their classic menu items.

During the "Bacon Hour" customers will receive a free side of thick-cut Applewood smoked bacon with ANY purchase!

There is a limit of one free side of bacon per person with any order. But if you jump around to multiple Mickey D's you can grab a few sides *wink, wink*...

According to USA Today McDonald's will be adding these bacon creations to their menu for a limited time:

Cheesy Bacon Fries: Fries topped with cheddar cheese sauce and smoked bacon bits.

Big Mac Bacon: Three pieces of Applewood smoked bacon with two beef patties, lettuce, cheese, pickles and onions on a sesame seed bun.

Quarter Pounder Bacon: Three pieces of Applewood smoked bacon atop a burger, which at most restaurants in the contiguous U.S. is made with fresh beef.

I can't wait for a customer to create a bacon apple pie with their free side.
