"United States of Bacon" is a reality series on Destination America that is based on an episode from summer 2012's three-part series "United States of Food."

Have no fear, bacon is here! In the midst of a great bacon shortage — dubbed the "aporkalypse" by some, the special-turned-series continues across the country as its host, Chef Todd Fisher, searches for the most mouth-watering bacon creations that American kitchens have to offer. The series serves viewers the sizzling strips they crave despite an unavoidable "world shortage of pork and bacon next year."

The previous special visited venues with the most popular and innovative bacon dishes in the nation. Making Chef Todd's "bacon bucket list" were trail-blazing small businesses like the Bacon Bacon Truck in San Francisco and their traffic-stopping grilled cheese, which oozes bacon jam in addition to containing a few strips of the real stuff. Chef Todd also got a taste of bacon-wrapped hot dogs at NYC's Crif Dogs, nibbled a bacon and chocolate ice cream sandwich at Big Gay Ice Cream, and bit into a burger at LA's Slaters "50/50," where every patty has an even ratio of beef to bacon.

"United States of Bacon" is produced for Destination America by Sharp Entertainment. For Sharp, Matt Sharp is executive producer. For Destination America, Fay Yu and Ron Simon are executive producers, Sara Kozak is SVP of production, Marc Etkind is SVP of content strategy, and Henry Schleiff is president and general manager.
