I just heard about a new product called Bacon Salt. You add it to your food to make it taste like bacon. I glanced at their website, and their motto is : “Everything should taste like bacon.” Well, that’s an interesting premise. They’ve also said, “We’ve on a quest to make everything taste like bacon.” Hmm… I really like bacon, and there should be more dishes that include bacon, but everything? That might be a little extreme.
However, there is a catch to this innovative new product. Check out one of their product descriptions, which at first sounds good, but there’s obviously a flaw in the slaw : “Bacon Salt is a zero calorie, vegetarian, kosher certified seasoning salt that makes everything taste like real bacon.” How is bacon vegetarian? And how is it zero calorie? The concept of bacon taste with zero calories sounds great, no doubt, but this goes against conventional wisdom. Typically, what makes foods good is that they are unhealthy. If there are no calories and there is no meat to this product, how is it good?
But I will not pass judgment at this time, for I have not tried this product. I would like to, though. I looked for it in the spices section of Walmart the other day, but didn’t find any. (To the makers of Bacon Salt, if you donate me a package, I’ll gladly write a review of it.)
