Two distinct and seperate words – Bacon & Salt. I bet that put a smile on your face, but what if they weren’t distinct and seperate? What if it was simply Bacon Salt? No need to wonder “what if” anymore thinks to our friends Justin Esch and Dave Lefkow, founders of Bacon Salt.

In 2007 Justin and Dave held their first Bacon Salt taste test with close friends (we’ve been in that position too and know how exciting and scary those taste tests can be). In short order they were producing Bacon Salt (their first three flavors were Original, Hickory and Peppered). Over the years they have introduced more flavors of Bacon Salt (including Natural Bacon Salt, Applewood, Jalapeno, Mesquite, Chedder and Maple), Baconnaise (a bacon flavored mayo), Bacon Pop (bacon flavored popcorn), and Mmmvelopes (bacon flavored envelopes). These guys are a real inspiration to us and we can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Fortuantely, we don’t have to wait long to find out. Pork Barrel BBQ caught up with Justin at the 2011 NASFT Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco last week to find out what new products Bacon Salt has out!
