AUSTIN, Minn. —The Hormel Black Label bacon announced four new bacon toppings products on June 14 including cherrywood real bacon crumbles, pecanwood real bacon crumbles, real chopped bacon and single-serve real bacon bits. The bacon packages can be found nationwide.
The Hormel Black Label cherrywood and pecanwood real bacon crumbles are an extension of the brand’s real bacon pieces. Packaged in 3-oz. resealable pouches, cherrywood and pecanwood real bacon crumbles contain 40 percent less fat than pan-fried bacon.
"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 Black Label bacon is also available in chopped form. The company takes fully cooked bacon strips and chops into large edible pieces for consumers. The chopped bacon is available in 3.5-oz. resealable pouches.
