As far as I know, this was the only cereal-related April Fools’ gag on the internet this year: Smithfield Bacon Crisps Cereal.

It seems like every year some company tries to do a “ridiculous bacon product” April Fools’ joke, and it always falls flat because there really are endless amounts of bizarre bacon related novelties for sale out there. Does bacon-flavored cereal really sound so crazy when you can actually buy bacon lip balm, bacon toothpaste, and bacon-scented pillows? And the folks at Smithfield should especially be on top of that, since bacon is their thing!

Anyway! Nice try, Smithfield, you crazy kooks, you…!
