HINESBURG, VT. – Vermont Smoke & Cure’s new Hickory Smoked Uncured Bacon Pork Mini Sticks are now available in retail and online stores. The mini sticks taste like bacon with a smoky flavor and hint of maple syrup.

The Hickory Smoked variety is the fourth stick offered from Vermont Smoke & Cure, a Johnsonville LLC subsidiary, in a 0.5-oz go-pack format. An additional 10 flavors in three protein varieties are produced from hand-trimmed meat in small batches at the company’s smokehouse in Hinesburg. The snacks are slow-cooked for 18-plus hours.

All meat in the products is sourced from animals raised without antibiotics or added hormones. The meats are smoked with ground corn cob, hickory and maple wood shavings – never liquid or artificial smoke flavor. And no artificial colors, preservatives or flavors are added.

“Tastes right because it’s handcrafted from the finest cuts of meat,” said Michael Schafer, Commercial Business Lead.
