A mysterious smell drifted around FoodMaxx in East Redding on Thursday afternoon, confusing and teasing numerous citizens: a scent of bacon.
“It made me crazy,” reports Chelle Tibbs, a dieting mother of three from Westwood Village. “I can’t have bacon until I lose another eighty pounds. I couldn’t take it. Had to leave.” When asked what was in her grocery bags, Tibbs reportedly told Redding Jefferson to mind its own business.
The origin of the aroma remains unknown at this time. Curiously enough, bacon curator and local curmudgeon Terrence McCanders declined to comment.
