What's up with the human race and Bacon?

I was craving pancakes this morning, and pulled out a cookbook -no I have not memorized one of the most basic recipes of all time, so deal- and as I was mixing my batter, I noticed the next recipe was for bacon pancakes. 
As in bacon was to be cut up and put into it, and bacon grease was to be used instead of butter for the batter and also in the pan. 
So I'm like icky on that idea. Which given before I became a vegetarian, I used to love bacon is odd.  Then I started to think about all the products that I've been seeing in the grocery store the last while, like bacon butter, and bacon mayo, and bacon spread.   Which to me, all seems the same thing but whatever Eh?
So seriously, there are so many forms of bacon depending on where in the world you live, from Pancetta, to Back Bacon, to hell there is even Turkey Bacon now.
So what is it about bacon that makes all of society melt?  And you know, I have tried the vegetarian fake bacon and have to say icky on that too.
