United Supermarkets, Market Street, Albertsons Market and Amigos locations across Texas and New Mexico launched their first Bacon Fest April 7.
Bacon Fest will run from April 7 to May 4 and, throughout that time, each location will be providing a huge selection of bacon related products. Guests can look for their typical package of bacon, from traditional to gourmet, but there is more bacon fun to be had.
Some of the featured bacon items making an appearance during Bacon Fest will be bacon mac and cheese, BLT pizza, bacon cookies, chocolate-covered bacon and bacon cinnamon rolls.
“We are so excited to launch our first Bacon Fest,” said Scott Nettles, director of meat and seafood for the United Family. “From bacon cinnamon rolls to bacon wrapped items to put on the grill, Bacon Fest is going to give us an opportunity to remind everyone of the great ways they can use bacon as well as some ways they may not have thought of before. Some say you can’t buy happiness, but we have created some incredible new bacon items, and we hope that will get you pretty close.”
In addition to the special items, a Bacon and Brews event will be held on April 17 at the Taphouse locations inside Market Streets in Lubbock and Mansfield. There will be bacon, cold beer and live music.
