    a bacon barm

    What is a bacon barm? Is it a popular dish in english-speaking countries?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    There are a number of restaurants/diners named "Bacon Barn". I have never heard a dish named that.

    I suppose it could be a slang name for a building to house pigs on a farm.

    It seems to be a BrE term for a bacon sandwich. https://www.google.co.jp/search?q='b...w=1424&bih=746

    It's "barm" with an em.

    Apparently it is a type of roll/bun made originally with yeast skimmed off the top of fermenting beer or liquor.

    So, it's a regional name for a sandwich in parts of England made with this type of roll.

    I thought it was a typo.

    So did I.
    I don't think I'd ever use a 'bacon flavored lip balm' (in the link I provided).

    I would happily kiss a woman wearing bacon lip balm.
