Bacon, Schmacon

Schmacon is beef’s answer to bacon, a product we introduced you to in 2014. Previously only available at Schmaltz Deli and online, it’s now available on local shelves.

“Schmacon is going global! First off Schmacon is finally starting to hit the grocery shelves in Chicagoland, it’s at Fresh Thyme and we have an announcement that it will be available at Jewel in early 2016,” said the creator of Schmacon, Howard Bender.

Created by Bender, a Naperville chef and resident, Schmacon contains less sodium, fat and calories than its pork counterpart, without cutting down on flavor.
