Introduced by Justin Esch, co-founder of the Seattle-based J&D Foods, the shaving cream was developed with the website, The Art of Shaving. The intent was to create a good shaving product with J&D’s unique aura about it, reports the Los Angeles Times.
While smelling of bacon, the cream does not contain any actual pork products. The developers ran into issues with shelflife and such that prevented them using real bacon.
J&D Foods has a long history — well, since 2007 anyway — of developing bacon-related products. It’s the company responsible for earlier sensations like Baconnaise, the bacon-flavored mayonnaise, and BaconPOP, a bacon-flavored popcorn.
The cream is being billed as the first shaving cream to have the scent of the popular breakfast slides. That’s a good brag, but a shop in Florence, Wis., has been selling a similar product since 2010, according to the Edmonton Examiner.
The cream sells for $14.99 per 5-ounce jar. Production is limited to 2,500 jars, which are available online.
