Give the Gift of Bacon
Flavored lip balms, popcorn and more make fun stocking stuffers.user rating
The bacon craze is raring right up into the holidays, and the latest entrant? Bacon Flavored Lip Balm, a way to make your lips taste cured and smoked like the real thing. A great stocking stuffer, this balm will keep your lips from chapping while constantly reminding you why bacon is the king of meats.
This creation is the latest in a line developed by Dave Lefkow and Justin Esch, two friends on a mission to make everything taste like bacon. They began fulfilling their creed with the creation of Bacon Salt in flavors such as Original, Hickory and Peppered, followed by several limited-edition flavors including Applewood, Jalapeño, Mesquite, Cheddar and Maple Redux. They continued spreading the word of bacon with the creation of Baconnaise, a spread that promises to take your sandwiches, salads, dips, fish and fries to new, more bacony heights. Next came BaconPop, inspired by one of the guys’ great-grandmother, who made stovetop popcorn with old bacon grease that she kept in a coffee can in the kitchen. The guys found a way to combine the great tastes of butter and bacon with a premium microwave popcorn that’s gluten-free and vegan. And for those wanting the taste of bacon to brighten a mundane task, J&D’s has created Mmmvelopes, bacon-flavored envelopes that, when licked, taste like—you guessed it—bacon.
