Bacon Soup, fully known as Briar Label Bacon Soup, is a vital collectible item from all chapters up-to-date of Bendy and the Ink Machine.


It is a soup can lacking a pull tab, and is printed with an image of Bendy along with the "BRIAR LABEL BACON SOUP" tag and the description.

As seen from the Bacon Soup's advertisement poster, the soup contains exquisite vegetable soup, spices, and soft bacon with an irresistible scent.


Obtaining the can of Bacon Soup will make Henry consume it. It should be noted that Henry is unable to eat cans of Bacon Soup beneath other cans. Consuming one can of Bacon Soup will completely restore Henry's health even if he is on the verge of death.

Bendy in Nightmare Run

Main article: Bacon Soup (Nightmare Run)

The cans of Bacon Soup appear in the mobile spin-off, Bendy in Nightmare Run as the main and only collectible items found in all four playable cartoon levels. There they act as currency for the game and was used for purchasing stuff, specially to unlock acts, characters, costumes, upgrading power-up items, and leveling up the characters' health.


  • The item could be a reference to theMeatly's favorite food - bacon.
  • Interestingly, the soup is actually based on the real-life soup of the same name.
    • Additionally, there is a food day for Bacon Soup, April 18th.
      • Ironically, this was the release date of Chapter 2.
  • The back of the can reads "Just the way the little devil likes it!".
  • The Bacon Soup's advertisement poster seen from several areas belongs to one of the Chapter 3 fanart contest winners Firion Bifrost.
  • There is also another description that reads "Eat with fork", requiring consumers to eat the soup out of the can with fork. Henry, however, is assumed to drink the soup like a soda/pop can as he does not have a fork with him at all.
    • This may be a reference to one of theMeatly's comics where he suggests "Complicated tip #572: eat soup with a fork".
  • According to theMeatly on Twitter, he said that Bacon Soup does not just taste good but is also good for everyone's souls.[1]
    • Also, he describes the Bacon Soup: "It's good for the body and soul.".[2]
  • It is revealed that Bacon Soup can still taste good despite being left for 30 years, according to theMeatly on Twitter.[3]
    • This is likely because the soup is canned, and therefore prevents it from turning bad.
  • A can of soup without a pull tab will only open when using a can-opener in reality. From the game, however, it is unknown how Henry opens the Bacon Soup cans without a can-opener (which does not seem to exist from the entire chapters) before eating. This is likely an oversight by the developers.
  • Each can costs 5 cents, as of the labeling.
    • Twenty-one cans from Chapter 1 totals $1.05.
      • Two cans from Chapter 1's first remastered update totals up 10 cents.
    • Thirty cans from Chapter 2 totals $1.50.
      • Forty-two cans from Chapter 3 cost $2.10.

  • From the Chapter 1 prototype, the Bacon Soup cans were not added yet.
  • Eating all of the Bacon Soup cans will unlock the "The Taste of Home" achievement.
    • There are only two cans of Bacon Soup in the first remastered update, and it is a part of unlocking the "Canadian Bacon" achievement by also collecting the said cans from Chapter 2.

  • Eating all of the cans of Bacon Soup unlocks the "Canadian Bacon" achievement.

  • Collecting all of the cans of Bacon Soup unlocks the "Bring Home the Bacon" achievement.
