Legit Facebook Ad: Bacon Salt

I have been seeing ads for Bacon Salt on the left-hand-side of Facebook periodically for weeks. Generally, Facebook ads seem like obvious scams—featuring secrets on how to lose 20lbs in a week or where to sell broken gold jewelry. Much to my delight, however, the ads for Bacon Salt are no lie; they even have a blog to prove it!

What is Bacon Salt, you ask?

“A zero calorie, vegetarian, kosher certified seasoning salt that makes everything taste like real bacon.”

I ordered the Original and Hickory flavors today in hopes that I can make any fries taste like Rennie’s Cheesy Bacon Fries, and thereby, make my life worth living, again. I also plan on concocting some cocktail recipes that involve Bacon Salt-rimmed glasses.

Stay tuned for my follow-up Bacon Salt consumption post, once my order arrives!

  1. Michael G. says:

    Okay, this stuff is available from Market of Choice up near the Safeway on Coburg Road.

    It’s not bad, but it’s not the same as real bacon.

  2. Lauren Ann Grether says:

    Dad rules!

  3. Lauren Ann Grether says:

    I LOVE BACON!!!!! and Dad…

  4. Carly Erickson says:

    I’d put bacon salt on my bacon…

  5. Vincent says:

    Tim: 1. Vegetarians: 0.

  6. Timothy says:

    Yes, and what if you

  7. Michelle Haley says:

    Or there are the bacon lovers that have loved too much. My neighbor had a triple bypass last summer, I don’t think he should be eating real bacon, but I’m sure he’d appreciate it if EVERYTHING tasted like real bacon.

  8. Sean says:

    Yes, and what if you’re vegetarian?
    Jeez, Tim, way to be intolerant.

  9. Michelle Haley says:

    But sometimes you don’t have bacon on hand…

  10. Timothy says:

    The secret to making everything taste like bacon is simple: Prepare food, ADD BACON.

  11. Sean says:

    Wow…good catch, Michelle!
    Hopefully they’ll have Cheese Salt, too, so you can get that Cheesy in the Cheesy Bacon Fries.

  12. Michelle Haley says:

    I’m guessing the ad is aimed at everyone in Eugene. It’s a low-sodium, _vegetarian_ product.

  13. Kai Davis says:

    Given that the facebook ads are targeted based on age, school, sex, major, etc, I’m wondering what exactly the target for Baconsalt is!
