We added Benton’s Bacon to the site this week. Before I begin my Bacon rant…here are a few words from the Benton’t website about their product:
“Our hickory smoked country bacon is equally at home on a bacon, lettuce, and vine ripe tomato sandwich or on the breakfast table as it is wrapped around a premier cut of beef or a fish fillet. Hickory smoked in our smokehouse using an old-fashioned wood stove, each slice of our bacon has a distinctive full flavor that has attracted and maintained a broad spectrum of customers, from those looking for smoked bacon “the way grandpa made it” to gourmet chefs with the most distinguishing of tastes.”
As a wholesaler of many bacons, I have certainly been exposed to some very fine cured and smoked meats from around the globe. Benton’s Bacon, however, is a true American Original. If apple pie is the true American Dessert, than Benton’s Bacon is the true American Breakfast Meat. Each slab should come with it’s own flag!
I think we can all agree that bacon=meat candy, and if this equation holds true, then Benton’s Bacon=Godiva Truffles. If you are thinking of having a fine breakfast or brunch gathering, or you are looking for a slice of heaven to wrap around that nice filet of beef…look no further.
Other items of note this week added to the weRgourmetfoods site are:
Kewpie Mayonnaise (needs a blog post all it’s own)
and Minus 8 Vinegar
