WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A West Lafayette grocery store is celebrating the big game this weekend with a trophy made of bacon.
It’s being called the Lombardi Bacon Trophy by its creator, Terry George. George is the meat manager at the West Lafayette Pay Less store.
According to 24-Hour News 8 news partner, WLFI, the trophy was made as a way to push bacon sales
George said he got the idea watching television.
The piece has gotten plenty of looks from customers, including a few interactions from some growling stomachs.
“Some of the kids want to eat the bacon. It’s just a great conversational piece for a customer that walks by and says, ‘Wow, that looks neat,'” said George.
The trophy took a couple hours to make and has a total of 270 strips of bacon wrapped around it.
George said he will be donating the trophy to the West Lafayette football team.
