Winemaker’s Notes: Mid crimson in colour, the Yalumba Y Series Shiraz Viognier 2011 opens with alluring aromas of Turkish delight, white pepper and summer puddings – highlighting this exotic blend. The palate is medium bodied and full of juicy summer berries that lead to a supple tannin finish. Try with barbequed American style pork spare ribs or steamed pork buns.
Laurie talks to Justin Esch, co-founder of J&D’s Food and creators of Bacon Salt. They talk about Miley Cyrus and all things BACON! Justin and Dave were just two regular guys who won money on America’s Funniest Home Videos® and used it to launch our first product, Bacon Salt®. That’s right, salt that makes everything taste like bacon. They soon realized that the worldwide demand for a bacon-flavored seasoning was more immense than they could have ever imagined. In just 5 days we sold all 6,000 jars of Bacon Salt we had to people in 15 countries and 25 states – from our website, out of a garage – without spending a dime on marketing or advertising. The innovation didn’t stop there. There were more food products they thought could taste 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.
