When parents Tyler and Melissa Beach posted a video to Facebook of their son Easton trying bacon for the first time on Christmas morning, they probably couldn't have imagined a family moment they found so hilarious would soon be viewed more than 11 million times! But when you watch this tot fall in love with everyone's favorite breakfast meat at first bite, you'll soon understand why so many people have fallen in love with baby Easton!
In the clip, we see the little guy dressed in Christmas jammies and lounging back in his high chair after his very first taste of bacon. And it's as if he's gone to heaven! Easton's eyes close as the crunchy treat transports him to an other-worldly bliss.
"Bacon," he keeps repeating, as if under its spell. Meanwhile, his family members laugh with delight as they witness this little man experiencing what real food is all about. And he can't get enough of it, stuffing a piece of crispy goodness into his mouth and reveling in the taste.
Now he's screaming the name of his new favorite food, grinning from ear to ear. He can't seem to believe food this good exists on the planet!
I mean, Easton's reaction to bacon is so incredible, he almost convinced me, a vegetarian for more than 20 years, to try it. Almost. You're not quite that good, little guy! But I think I sense a future salesmen here!
