J&D Foods, based in Seattle, and specializing in all things bacon, has a new drinkable pork product – a sizzling new bacon-flavored fizzy beverage for bacon enthusiasts in the U.S.
And yes, it is anti-Kosher too, but we know only Muslims will be offended by this drink. JD FOODS
UK DAILY MAIL Already boasting products including Baconnaise and bacon-flavoured envelopes, the company teamed up with Jones Soda to produce the special edition item in time for the holidays.
Owner Justin Esch told AOL: ‘They know soda. We know bacon. We were destined to merge our technologies for something big. ‘We’ve already made bacon beauty products, bacon stationery and edible bacon products, so something drinkable was next.’
‘The drink started out tasting more like pork. But eventually we were able to get the crispiness of bacon in there without it being overpowered by porkiness.’ The bacon-flavoured soda is the perfect accompaniment to a lunchtime sandwich, or as a mixer in cocktails, according to its bacon-trepeneur creators.
Mr Esch added: ‘If you drink it at lunch with a turkey sandwich, then your sandwich instantly becomes a turkey club. ‘It’s also good as a mixer in cocktails. Bourbon and bacon soda go together very nicely.’
Two bottles of the porcine pop cost $10, which also includes a bag of bacon popcorn, a tube of bacon lip balm and a packet of, you guessed it, bacon-flavour gravy.
