‘Bacon with anything’ is Justin and Dave’s mantra, the guys behind JD Foods who believe that everything should taste like bacon. They believe in this mantra so much that they have turned their bacon dream into a bacon flavoured reality, with products such as Bacon Salt, Bacon mayonnaise, bacon popcorn, bacon gravy, bacon lip balm and now their latest product – bacon shaving cream. These guys really do love their bacon! But how did they come about creating their bacon empire?
Justin and Dave think that bacon goes with just about anything. It’s kind of like a condiment, isn’t it? Except it doesn’t come in a bottle, is hard to cook, and makes an awful mess. Not to mention that it’s not the healthiest thing in the world. Their story starts as just two regular guys who love grilling and football on Sunday afternoons, eating until they can’t get off the couch and of course, the taste of great bacon. They had a dream to make everything taste like bacon and while on a business trip together, they had the chance to sit down for dinner and eventually, the conversation turned to their mutual love of bacon. It was then that Justin told Dave and another coworker named Kara about his idea for Bacon Salt®. Kara, who is a vegetarian, loved the idea. Dave, a card-carrying carnivore and Midwesterner, loved it even more. Even the waiter at the fancy restaurant loved it. The rest is hickory smoked history and in 2007 the first flavors of Bacon Salt were tried out.
Today, Bacon Salt comes in a variety of flavors, including Original, Hickory, Peppered and Natural. They also have some Limited Edition flavors like Applewood, which typically come out around the holidays. Not content with changing kitchen tables all over America however with their new condiment of Bacon Salt, the pair decided to expand the bacon empire and create some truly wonderful bacon flavoured products:
Known as the ultimate bacon spread, available in lite or regular. The is a perfect spread that takes any sandwich to another level.
Just like cooking popcorn kernels in your Granny’s old skillet, that still has the remains of bacon fat from this morning’s fry up.
Justin and Dave offer up their apologies for not thinking of this product sooner. Here’s what they had to say: “It takes a big man to apologize. In our case, its double-big since we are two men. The fact is we got distracted. After we launched Bacon Salt® and Baconnaise®, we should have gone right to work creating the perfect Bacon Gravy. Instead, our minds wandered.”
Bacon Lip Balm
Now your face can always smell of bacon; not what we think is the best advertising slogan but those baconmeisters seem to know what they are doing. A lipbalm that tastes of bacon is not going to last very long!
Envelopes that when you lick them taste of bacon? It’s the future I tell you! No longer will envelopes taste like the underside of your car. You can enjoy the taste of delicious bacon instead. Lick it, love it, mail it!
