#teambacon is working my nerves, man.
When you’re too lazy to make bacon, why not pop a bottle and just drink bacon instead?
J&D Foods, a company that specializes in all things bacon — including bacon-flavored envelopes and the bacon Kevin Bacon sculpture that made headlines recently — has taken the obsession one step further by coming up with a new drinkable pork product: bacon-flavored soda.
That’s right, Coca-Cola is out, and swine soda is in.
J&D Foods owner Justin Esch told AOL News that his company recently partnered with Jones Soda to create a special-edition bacon-flavored drink just in time for the holidays.
Since both companies are based in Seattle and are known to take risks developing wacky products, Esch said it was only a matter of time before they got together and combined forces.
“They know soda. We know bacon. We were destined to merge our technologies for something big,” Esch said. “We’ve already made bacon beauty products, bacon stationery and edible bacon products, so something drinkable was next.”
Esch said his crew and mixologists over at Jones worked tirelessly for months concocting the perfect bacon flavoring for the beverage.
After much trial and error, he said they were finally able to get the taste just right.
“Nailing the flavor was tough. We didn’t want pot roast, we didn’t want pork tenderloin, we wanted bacon. The drink started out tasting more like ham than pork. But eventually we were able to get the crispiness of bacon in there without it being overpowered by porkiness,” Esch said.
Team Bacon, out yourselves – which of you is going to be waiting to buy this?
Bacon beauty products? Bacon stationery? Am I crazy?
Shouts to @SincerelyBrandi for torturing me with this… I truly appreciate it. 🙁
