Mmmm…Bacon Salt!

According to the Bacon Salt site, it’s a “zero-calorie, vegetarian, kosher-certified seasoning salt that makes everything taste like real bacon. It’s the creation of Justin and Dave, “two regular guys who love grilling and football on Sunday afternoons, eating until we can’t get off the couch and of course, the taste of great bacon.”

Here’s a snippet from their story:

Up until several months ago, we worked together in a little technology company. While on a business trip together, we had the chance to sit down for dinner and eventually, the conversation turned to our 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.

And from that point forward, a partnership was struck to turn this bacon-flavored dream into a reality. We asked friends, colleagues and family members if we were completely nuts, but at each turn we got encouragement and more importantly, people who just couldn’t wait to eat it. We learned that people were unsatisfied by the bacon flavored products on the market: too smokey, too crunchy and none of it tasted like real, savory, delicious bacon, they said. We smelled a big opportunity (which, ironically, smelled exactly like bacon frying on a Sunday morning).

Being techies-turned-seasoning creators, they have a blog.

It sounds very unhealthy-delicious. I may have to try it.

Order some, I’d love to try it!

You should have a potluck dinner where everyone has to bring something unusual like this for everyone to try. I would so be there.

Imagine the magical taste sensations you could create with this, mixing the flavor of bacon with anything…bacon and ice-cream, peanut butter, jam, and bacon sandwiches, the list goes on and on and you never have to worry about bacon grease or heart-attacks

@Allan: While you might not have to worry about the effects of bacon fat, there’s still the risk of high blood pressure if you use too much — it is, after all, salt.

Besides, I get the feeling that bacon-salted eggs aren’t as satisfying as bacon and eggs.

I am looking forward to bacon-salted mashed potatoes, though…

Fine, I’ll bite (no pun intended). Seeing as how their Hickory flavour is vegan, I suppose it can’t be all bad.

Has anyone found a retailer in Toronto or the GTA that carries this stuff? I’d be very interested is getting a sampler pack for a vegetarian friend of mine who absolutely loves bacon.
