Hormel Foods Launches Four New Bacon Toppings Products

The makers of Hormel Black Label bacon, one of America's fastest growing brands in the category, announced today the launch of four new bacon toppings products, including cherrywood real bacon crumbles, pecanwood real bacon crumbles, real chopped bacon, and single serve real bacon bits.

Made from 100 percent bacon, Hormel Black Label bacon toppings have a natural and tender texture and allow consumers the convenience to add real bacon to salads, soups, pastas and other recipes, adding a burst of flavor to any meal.

The Hormel Black Label cherrywood and pecanwood real bacon crumbles are an extension of Hormel Black Label bacon product's real bacon pieces and provides consumers additional versatility in two of the brand's premium flavors. Packaged in 3 oz. resealable pouches, cherrywood and pecanwood real bacon crumbles contain 40 percent less fat* than pan-fried bacon.

Additionally, Hormel Black Label bacon is now available in chopped form, adding yet another level of versatility and convenience for consumers. Hormel Black Label real chopped bacon takes fully cooked bacon strips and chops it into large, ready-to-eat pieces for consumers. Available in 3.5 oz. resealable pouches, Hormel Black Label real chopped bacon is perfect way to enhance your meals, snacks and salads with the delicious flavor of 100 percent real 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 toppings products can be found in the salad toppings aisle in stores nationwide.
