We get occasional requests for samples from members of the media. It's sometimes hard to tell why they want it - do they want to write about it, or just eat it? Often it's a little of both.
One of the earlier requests for samples was from PC Gamer magazine. We weren't sure what a PC gaming magazine would want with Bacon Salt, but we were "game" and sent it along anyways. As a result, we'll be highlighted in their November issue, on newsstands in October.
Apparently, Bacon Salt has become somewhat of an obsession among many of the staffers there. Here's a tongue-in-cheek (or maybe finger-in-cheek) recipe from Logan Decker, their senior editor. All we can say is this must be a fun place to work!
