bacon shaving cream 300x300 Just in Time for Christmas: Bacon Scented Shaving Cream[1]Now you can buy that special someone bacon-scented shaving cream.

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[2]. The intent was to create a good shaving product with J&D’s unique aura about it, reports the Los Angeles Times[3].

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[4].

The cream sells for $14.99 per 5-ounce jar. Production is limited to 2,500 jars, which are available online.
