Hormel launches new bacon toppings

06/15/2018
Makers of Hormel Black Label have announced the launch of four new products that make the perfect topping for any meal.

The Austin, Minn.-based company’s new bacon toppings come in four flavors — Cherrywood, pecanwood, real chopped bacon and single serve real bacon bites — and have a natural, tender texture, the company said.

“Consumers are eating more bacon than ever and continue to use bacon as an ingredient and flavor enhancer,” said Corrine Hjelmen, brand manager at Hormel Foods. “In fact, bacon in all forms is seeing its highest consumption ever. Making two of our on-trend and unique bacon flavors – cherrywood and pecanwood – available as a topping, as well as providing a fully-cooked, ready-to-eat chopped bacon, are items our consumers have been asking for, and we are happy to deliver.”

Hormel’s cherrywood and pecan varieties are an extension of its Black Label products and come in 3-oz. resealable pouches that contain 40% less fat than pan-fried bacon.

The real chopped bacon takes fully cooked bacon strips and chops it into ready-to-eat pieces that also come in 3-oz. resealable pouches.

All four of the launches can be found in the salad toppings aisle in stores nationwide.
