Bacon Salt

I learned about this five minutes ago. Four minutes and thirty seconds ago, I placed my first order.

I'd like to officially welcome my new, bacony overlords. I've always wanted to try a bacon milkshake....

It's kosher-certified, so Jews and Muslims could eat it and enjoy the great taste of bacon?

Wow. I think it was less than a minute from when I read the original post to clicking to complete the purchase transaction. I'm so excited that I'm beside myself.

Heh. Bacon Salt next to Pork Rind.

And you can bet your hams I'm ordering some. I'm going to try making a BLT without the B--just the seasoning.

I can go buy some in person.
I think I'll do that soon.


Plus, since it's kosher, it takes away one of my stumbling blocks to conversion there's still the whole believing in Jesus thing. But with this - I'd be halfway to solving the bacon cheeseburger problem

The only thing greater than this, IMO, would be bacon butter.

The Rykid discovered that putting Bacon Salt on multigrain bread is actually pretty good.

Yep just Bacon Salt and bread--nothing else.

He's right, too.

Stuff is amazing.

Oh snap! I ordered online without realizing that I can buy it, in person, about a block away from my office. I'm trying to get people wound up about a bacon salt-buying trip right now.

I don't get the excitement, personally.

You want all of your food to taste like bacon?

Okay, let me see if I can explain it to you.

You can make food... that is not bacon... taste like... bacon.

I hope that clears things up.




I've been thinking about this for the last couple of hours. I want to make eggs benedict with bacon-salted eggs and hollandaise seasoned with bacon salt.

My favorite breakfast is a bacon and cheddar cheese sandwich on toast. Sometimes I butter the toast. Sometimes I don't toast it and use Miracle Whip instead. If there's a tomato lying around, I'll slice and add that too.

I'm debating whether or not someone should email the BaconSalt folks and notify them of the avalanche of bacon-related excitement they've contributed to here on the Dope. Maybe they'll peruse the thread and use some of the posts as testimonials.

Thoughts?

No, just most of it.

Seriously, though, if it turns out to be any good, it's a godsend for those of us who, for one reason or another, can't or don't eat bacon, but who still wish they could. I can't eat bacon because of the high fat content, and I'm sharing a house with two vegetarians. But we all love bacon, and the minute I looked at their web site, I went, "Wow! What a great idea!" and ordered one of each.

You mean you don't want all your food to taste like bacon? We have a heretic amongst us!

I just started a new job after five months unemployment and the three pack is my first splurge spend. Could I have had anything better for my first splurge???


Oh and....

Well, so is chicken, and steak, and shrimp, and salmon, and trout, and ground beef, and salami, and mussels, and clams, and oysters, and ham, and cheese, and onions, and peppers, and well the list is obviously endless. Therefore I see no reason in wanting everything to taste like bacon. YMMV.

I could not understand your absurd question until I looked at your location. A fella might think that way if he only had Canadian bacon.

This thread reminds me, I need to call Lumber Liquidators. Their radio spot says they specialize in " hardwood, bamboo, and Pork Flooring."

Mmmmm, pork flooring!

One word: Awesome.

Baconated popcorn is my new favorite snack. Four our of four taste-testers in the office
agree that it is the atomic bomb of goodness.

Hickory: Bacony, with a nice smoky sweetness.
Peppered: Wow! Bacony, with, well, PEPPER.
Regular: Haven't opened it yet. Bought it as a present for a favored co-worker.

What about the salt grain size? I imagined it to be coarse, similar to kosher salt, but is it?

How well does it simulate the taste of bacon? The attractiveness to me was the prospect of being able to add bacon flavor without actually cooking up bacon, and I was willing to take a flavor hit for the sake of convenience. There's also the fact that it adds bacon flavor without adding fat.

So yeah, how's the taste stack up to bacon, and what is the consistency of the salt?

Also, you're totally awesome for providing a review for us.

What exactly is in this stuff? If it's "kosher" and "vegetarian," how do they simulate the flavor of bacon?

The ingredients list is lengthy, to be sure.

But the Bacon Salt has been acquired, and a full report will follow.

Oh. Oh my goodness.



I may have to reconsider my atheism, for this is strong proof for the existence of a loving God.



When y'all get your orders, please, please bump this thread to report your tasting results. This seems almost too good to be true, and I need some firsthand reportage before I go and buy a hundred bottles of this stuff.

Pff. This is a wonder of science, don't go bringing God into this.

Also, while probably delicious, I don't think it qualifies as health food. I mean, it's still salt...
