McCormick Grill Mates Unveils Marinated Bacon

McCormick Grill Mates Unveils Marinated Bacon

Wednesday, July 10th, 2019

I don’t know a single meat eater that doesn’t like bacon. Bacon seems to be one of those staple foods that’s good at any hour of the day and can go into literally anything from drinks and desserts to a meal all on its own. McCormick feels the same way. Sigma U.S. partnered up with McCormick Grill Mates, and I can already hear that bacon relationship sizzling.

Jeff Gaunt, Marketing Director, Sigma“What makes this new product truly innovative among bacon everywhere is the fact that it’s marinated,” said Jeff Gaunt, Marketing Director at Sigma in the U.S. “Other bacons on the market are typically flavored just with smoke. We are adding two additional steps to enhance flavor, introducing a new type of bacon that everyone is going to fall in love with.”

The unique, three-step process enhances the natural flavor of the bacon. First, the pork is marinated to soak in flavor; then smoked with natural hardwood smoke, sliced thick once out; and finally seasoned by flavor experts with a blend of McCormick Grill Mates seasonings. You might as well imagine yourself eating a steak with this intensive process.

McCormick Grill Mates Marinated Bacon comes in four flavors

“Marinating has been bringing more flavor to steak, chicken, and pork for years, so it made great sense to do the same with bacon,” said Gaunt. “Our three-step process delivers more flavor than bacon that is only smoked, making it easy for consumers to enjoy a bacon that tastes better than any bacon they’ve had before.”

Four new, thick-cut, premium McCormick Grill Mates Marinated Bacon flavors are rolling out, and I am hungry to try each one of them. Feast your eyes on this lineup:

  • The classic flavor, Ultimate Bacon, has even more bacon flavor for all the bacon lovers out there! This bacon is marinated and seasoned with extra bacon flavor.
  • McCormick Grill Mate’s flagship flavor, Montreal Steak, uses a robust blend of pepper, garlic, and spices.
  • Smoky Applewood combines the sweet, smoky blend of chili pepper, garlic, and Applewood smoke flavor.
  • An enticing blend of sweet brown sugar, bourbon, red bell peppers, and spices flavors the Brown Sugar Bourbon bacon.

All these mouth-watering flavors are available in retailers across the country this summer. Stay up to date with all the delicious announcements with Deli Market News.
