"original" news and stories
Once, not very long ago, two guys named Dave and Justin discovered that they shared a mutual love of bacon. One night over dinner, they stumbled upon the idea of shakeable bacon and thus a product model was born. They have a very basic philosophy, which is that "Everything should taste like bacon." You can get your bacon salt in one of three flavors, Original, Peppered and Hickory. Best of all? It's Kosher!

In honor of the release of the King Kong DVD, Hostess has released some limited edition Twinkies with banana cream filling. The combination of the moist Twinkie sponge cake and banana cream actually sounds like a really good idea. Did you know that banana was the original Twinkie flavor back in 1930? The cream filling changed to vanilla - now the standard - during World War II, when there was a banana shortage. The new banana Twinkies boxes also feature a contest to win a trip to Universal Studios in either Hollywood or Florida. It is possible that if the flavor is popular enough, it might outlast the length of the sweepstakes.
Has anybody tried these yet? I have not seen them at my local grocery store yet.
