Ditch the Tie, Dad Wants Bacon! [Infographic]

Father’s Day is approaching fast. Do you know what gift your dad really wants?

In 2012, 39 percent of money spent on Father’s Day gifts was on gift cards, 23 percent was on electronics, 20 percent was on clothing and 20 percent was on tools and automotive. These popular gifts aren’t necessarily what dad wants to get from his family.

In a survey of dads, 40 percent want “quality time” with the family and 36 percent want to eat out with the family.

So, what can you get dad for Father’s Day? Bacon.

Data shows that the number one item added to a meal in the US and Canada is bacon, and Twitter users tweet about the delicious food an average of 350 times a day. So, basically you should treat dad to a family dinner with lots of bacon involved. Check out this infographic from Oscar Mayer for other gift ideas and more bacon info.
