Want to wake up to the sound of bacon sizzling on the stove with its aroma drawing you out of bed?

There's an app for that.

Oscar Mayer says it has created a bacon-scented app for the iPhone, developed by the Madison-based company's Institute for the Advancement of Bacon.

The company says that to emit a small puff reminiscent of bacon, the user needs an external device that plugs into the headphone jack. The app itself produces the sound of bacon sizzling in a pan.

The company is making a limited number of the aroma-producing devices, which won't be for sale.

In order to get your hands on one of these devices, you have to enter a contest on the company's website. Oscar Mayer is giving away 4,700 devices starting Thursday. The contest runs through April 4.
