Before we leave for the night, there are a few things we need to do. First, we brush our teeth with a bottle of Jack (because you better believe we ain’t coming back). And second, we make sure that we’ll turn heads at the club—by making our hair smell like a breakfast sandwich.

How might one go about adding such a scent to their hair? Well, they could buy a breakfast sandwich and just start rubbing it against their scalp. Or, they could buy this new shampoo-conditioner combo, which leaves you smelling like a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich.

That’s right, you can now buy “Cheesy Shampoo” and “Wakin’ Bacon Conditioner” from Einstein Bros. Bagels. The two limited-edition hair care products come as a gift set, which is selling for a mere $10 online. This combo deal is a good thing, because using just the cheese-scented shampoo would kind-of lack the necessary context.

Bacon sandwich lovers will be able to get a taste of breakfast before they even make it to their favorite bagel shop. Practical jokers will have a wonderful time swapping their spouses’ shampoo bottles, because who needs silky smooth almond-scented hair anyway?

"What better way to start the day than with the delicious aroma of the new Cheesy Wakin' Bacon sandwich from Einstein Bros. Bagels," said Kerry Coyne, the company’s Senior VP of Marketing, Product and Innovation. "This is the ultimate breakfast apéritif—now our fans can shower themselves with mouth-watering scents, leaving them looking as incredible as they smell edible, all day long."

So whether you want to whet your appetite before a big weekend breakfast sandwich or just pretend like you’ve been working in a deli all day, these scented shampoos bring your self-grooming to the next level. Or just some other, very, very different level.
