Baconnaise is the ultimate bacon flavoured spread. Use it on sandwiches, salads, dips, sauces, chicken, fish & fries. Vegetarian safe – So proclaims the product’s website http://www.baconnaise.com/. How is this for a success story? To guys from the US, Justin & Dave, developed bacon flavoured salt, which they called Bacon Salt. They used the $5000 which Dave’s 3 year old son won from America’s Funniest Home Videos and started marketing the product. I particularly like their slogan – “Everything should taste like bacon”. They have done so well now (and the bacon salt product range is staggering – ranging from different wood flavours, such as hickory & apple wood to bacon flavoured lip balm). And now they’re launching their second product – baconnaise. Now, unfortunately, we do not have this in South Africa. Good cooking tip from me though, get some smoked paprika from woollies – it also gives a nice smoky taste to dishes like stews, soups, pasta etc, or use in marinades.
