Welcome to J&D’s! We are a company that had an improbable beginning and one that truly enjoys the smiles on people’s faces when they try our products.
It all started when Justin and Dave won some money on America’s Funniest Home Videos® and used it to launch the first product, Bacon Salt®. That’s right, salt that makes everything taste like bacon. America. Bacon for the Win.
It all started with a dream to make everything taste like bacon and the $5,000 that Dave’s 3 year old son won on America’s Funniest Home Videos by hitting Dave in the face with a whiffle ball. They soon realized that the worldwide demand for a bacon-flavored seasoning was more immense than could ever be imagined.
Innovation didn’t stop there. They created more food products that tasted like bacon: BaconPOP microwave popcorn, Baconnaise, Bacon Ranch Dressing and Dip Mix, and Bacon Croutons. Then came the novelty products – Bacon Lip Balm, Bacon-flavored Mmmvelopes, Bacon Shaving Cream, and more. The guys did some really crazy bacon-related events and stunts, like Baconnaise Wrestling. The tagline then as it is today is “Everything should taste like bacon.” And that is the true story. Justin and Dave have gone on to other things, but their Bacon Legacy remains.
We love the history, we love the products, and we love our customers. We hope you will give us a try.
J&D’s items are available online, in many Kroger’s, HEB and other stores around the US.
The winning video – not super funny, we know. There was probably some kind of bacon-loving divine intervention involved here… but a win’s a win!
