Bacon Goes to the Dogs
November 13/Secaucus, N.J. -- People are adding a smoky strip of bacon to just about everything these days, from ice cream sundaes to gourmet popcorn. So it is no wonder folks are in a panic over the impending pork bacon shortage in 2013, according to CNN and CBS News websites. However, bacon does not have to be made out of pork. A leaner alternative has been sizzling its way into more and more homes and restaurants across the country. Turkey bacon has grown in popularity among bacon lovers because it delivers the savory crunch they love with fewer calories and less fat.
However, the latest bacon attempt is for dogs, Freshpet Turkey Bacon dog treats. Like all Freshpet foods, Freshpet Turkey Bacon is made using only all-natural, simple ingredients. In fact, Freshpet Turkey Bacon only has six ingredients, beginning with real turkey. In the leading bacon-flavored dog treat, meat barely makes the top 10.
"We know concerned pet parents are looking for healthier meat treats made in the U.S.A., so we created a real bacon snack they can feel good about feeding every day," says Courtney Groome, Freshpet director of Marketing. "It smells and tastes just like human turkey bacon. I should know…I've tried it myself!"
Freshpet Turkey Bacon joins a complete line of fresh treats you'll only find in the Freshpet fridge. The indulgent yet healthy assortment has something to satisfy every pup, including meaty chicken treats, crunchy brown rice bones, wholesome sweet potato slices, and delicious ready to bake cookies.
Freshpet Turkey Bacon is available under their Dog Joy and Dog Nation treats brands in select grocery and pet specialty stores nationwide.
