Raleigh, N.C. — Chocolates, fruit, nuts, tiny toys: these are all your typical stocking stuffers but if you are looking to mix things up this year we have a couple suggestions.
J&D's, the Seattle-based company that brought you Bacon Salt (which makes everything taste like bacon) and Baconnaise (bacon-flavored mayonnaise), has two new products just in time for the holidays.
We became aware of these in a press release and when we saw the words "bacon deodorant" we knew we had to try it out. Here is our take on their new products:
J&D’s Bacon Deodorant: Bacon used to be just a simple breakfast item. You might have it as a side with your pancakes or to enhance your sandwich but over the past few years companies everywhere have realized the true potential of this crispy breakfast treat. I have had bacon suckers, chocolate covered bacon and even bacon flavored gum but none of this prepared me for the next big thing in hygiene – bacon scented deodorant. This is the perfect gift for any bacon lover in your family but be warned the smell is potent and you will be exuding bacon bits all day. Word of advice, be cautious around dogs.
J&D’s Sriracha Candy Canes: For the spice fanatics in your family, combine all things good in life (candy and Sriracha sauce) and give them a box of Sriracha Candy Canes. I love anything hot but I was still a little nervous to give these a try. I was afraid the taste of Sriracha sauce was going to be overpowering but I was happy to be wrong! The candy canes have the perfect amount of heat and remind me a lot of fireball candy. Put them in your hot chocolate, mix them in ice cream, or eat them plain. This is a fun twist on a traditional Christmas favorite that everyone will want to try.
