Oscar Mayer is offering its own version of those cheesy commercials in which a woman opens a box of sparkling jewelry from her adoring mate.

Its "Say It with Bacon" ad shows a couple riding in a horse-drawn carriage. The woman hands the man a small box covered with black velvet. He opens the lid to find two glorious strips of bacon. "When words just aren't enough, say it with bacon," a narrator says.
The commercial goes on to draw comparisons between bacon and diamonds. It shows a bacon scientist holding a piece of bacon against a color chart. And while diamonds have their own four "C" grades -- carat, cut, color and clarity -- Oscar Mayer says the C's for bacon are cut, color, consistency and cure.Close-up of bacon strips (© Alice Day/The Food Passionate/Corbis)

"Every strip of bacon has its own unique symmetry, like a snowflake," an Oscar Mayer employee says in the spot. "The bacon will tell you how it wants to be cut. All you have to do is listen and the bacon will show you the way."

Oscar Mayer has also unveiled bacon gift sets at its new website, Three gift box sets include The Commander, which comes with 18 to 20 pieces of bacon, a stainless-steel money clip and an elegant card for $22. The other sets come with bacon-themed cufflinks and tools that can perform several functions.

The site was sold out of all gift sets Thursday, but Oscar Mayer says it will restock daily.

Oscar Mayer is owned by Mondelez International (MDLZ), a spinoff of Kraft Foods (KRFT).

I'm all for that and I'm a Jew who loves bacon and green chili with pork, can't get much better then that.  Don't let your table become a snare unto you my Jewish friends as God blesses anything that you give thanks for as the Bible says.

One of the unmentioned gifts on site is one free arterial bypass on open heart surgery requiring three or mores stints or grafts, along with an upgrade from use of cheaper venous grafts to the pectoral artery.  There is also a stroke package and 50% off your first three months of Crestor, Lipitor or Zocor.  Ummmm, make that a double cheese burger with six strips of bacon and extra cheese.  Don't forget the bacon fries!
