COLUMBUS, OH - Students at Ohio State University are getting an extra salty treat during finals this month.

According to a report from USA Today, OSU now has a bacon vending machine on campus, selling the breakfast side dish in various forms.

The machine was unveiled by the Ohio Pork Council along with the University's Meat Science Club.

The vending machine sells bacon strips and bacon bits from multiple brands including Hormel, Smithfield and Sugardale.

Proceeds benefit the university's meat science program.

The Bacon Vending Machine is a unique and fun way for the Ohio Pork Council to support Ohio State students and promote the pork industry at the same time,” said Ohio Pork Council's President-Elect Dave Shoup told Fox 28 Columbus.
