Jennie-O Gives Breakfast A Wake-Up Call With Launch Of New And Improved Turkey Bacon

Bacon: America's most popular breakfast proteinAmericans think breakfast is better with bacon, according to a recent survey 1. The survey showed that bacon is the most popular breakfast protein, with more people eating bacon at breakfast than any other meal. Among regular bacon eaters, taste was the No. 1 quality driving consumers to eat bacon.

Forty percent of survey respondents also listed high fat content and high levels of sodium as their most important concerns when selecting bacon. Younger people were more likely to turn to turkey bacon for a better way to give breakfast a wake-up call, according to the survey. 

JENNIE-O ® turkey bacon : less sodium and fat New and improved JENNIE-O ® turkey bacon has 60 percent less sodium and 60 percent less fat than conventional pork bacon, according to USDA data. Per serving, sodium has been reduced from 340 mg to 130 mg. The product contains no MSG, no high-fructose corn syrup, no artificial sweeteners, no trans fats and no partially hydrogenated fats. It is gluten-free.

The delicious turkey bacon is now available in stores across the country, including Walmart, Save-A-Lot, Publix, Ralphs, Harris Teeter, Wegmans, Winn Dixie, Cub Foods, Roundy's, Albertsons and many more. Suggested retail price is $2.99.

Make the Switch ® . Inspiring Americans to try turkey.The launch of new and improved turkey bacon is part of an ongoing campaign to help the world discover the great taste of turkey and amplify awareness of the JENNIE-O brand. Based on the idea that people would be interested in switching to lean turkey if they had a chance to try the company's products in a familiar environment, Jennie-O has gone to high-profile locations in Los Angeles, New York and Boston to show the world the great taste of turkey.   

Recently, Jennie-O also helped the residents in the peaceful village of Sleepy Hollow, New York give breakfast a wake-up call. In appreciation of the village lending its location for filming the company's new breakfast television commercials, which will begin airing in mid-September, Jennie-O served residents free breakfast sandwiches.
