Bacon is one of America's favorite foods - and McDonald's knows this, after all, their bacon-infused creations are some of their best sellers. That's why next week they are debuting their Bacon Hour with - you guessed it - free bacon.
Participating locations throughout the US will be giving away a free side of thick-cut, Applewood smoked bacon with any purchase on Jan. 29, from 4 to 5 pm. No matter if you order an ice cream cone (assuming the ice cream machine is working), a sweet tea, or your favorite burger, you can request a free slice of bacon during this hour.
Unfortunately, there is a limit of one free side of bacon per person with any order. But it has to be this way or else we would definitely order 10 different things from the dollar menu just to get some extra bacon. The free bacon slice offer is not available in Alaska, Hawaii and U.S. Territories.
Free bacon is undoubtedly exciting, but it's just the beginning of the tasty magic McDonald's has up their sleeve. On Jan. 30, Cheesy Bacon Fries, the Big Mac Bacon burger and the Quarter Pounder Bacon burger join the McDonald's lineup for a limited time.

It's probably safe to assume if you want to get in on the bacon-action you should do so early - because lines will probably be enormous.
