Has anyone here tried Bacon Salt?

My husband came across a site about Bacon Salt, and it got me wondering how it would taste. I love split pea soup, but I make it with lean ham so that I am not racking up the fat and calories. I thought instead of regular salt I could use this for a hint of bacon flavor, but without the fat of actual bacon.

    That is some super interesting stuff and I'll be interested in responses too. My mother in law is a pescatarian (only eats fish, no meats) and I bet she'd be thrilled to hear about this stuff since it's veggie friendly. I'll have to look for it. :D Thanks for posting about this internetchick.

    (Upon further inspection I see they don't sell it in CT so I might just order some!)

    I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.

    LOL. I have not tried it, but my boyfriend forwarded me that link a couple weeks ago and he was very anxious to try it as well.

    I, on the other hand, am going to steer clear from bacon-flavored corn.

    Bacon and vegetarian shouldn't go in the same sentence. :lol: It's not something I would try and I like both bacon and salt. I'll take the real thing, thanks.

    I did a search and a grocery store about 8 minutes from me has it. I might go in a few days and pick some up.

    I've heard of it, but I cannot eat it. Let us know, as I know a few vegetarians and koshers who would want to know.

    You know what else works really well for this: smoked paprika.

    Yes, it's quite good. I use it in chili too.

    Mmmmm

    Where did you find this??? I don't think I've ever seen this at Kroger. Kroger isn't much for variety, though. I've never seen Bacon Salt, either. I like bacon and I like salt, but I don't know about bacon salt. it sounds good for pea soup, but I don't know if I'd use bacon flavoring for much. I'd like to try it, though.

    I'd be curious to know where you found it, and what brand it is.

    Here is is. It's McCormick's.

    I got it at a Super Target [a Target that also has a grocery store].

    Thanks! Hope I can find it locally.

    I was watching Emeril Live yesterday, and he said he used Turkey legs, in place of ham hocks so that would be healthier. I bet smoked turkey legs would give it a nice flavor. I have also heard about using a little liquid smoke to get some of that smoky flavor without added calories or fat.

    I didn't notice that this is a seasoning salt and not a bacon flavored regular salt until I was looking at it in the store. I rarely use seasoning salt, so I didn't get it. The thought of seasoning salt in pea soup is yuck! :lol:
