I say “bacon deodorant,” and you say, “Huh?”

Yup, a Seattle-based company is helping you take your bacon-loving-lifestyle to new heights with the launch of "Power Bacon," a bacon-scented deodorant.

J&D’s Foods in Seattle started in 2007 when two bacon-loving-fanatics got together over a beer (or maybe five or six) and decided that “everything should taste like bacon.”  Duh, why didn’t we all think of that?

The first product they launched was bacon-flavored seasoning salt, a zero calorie, zero fat, low sodium seasoning that makes everything taste like bacon. Immediately, people began sprinkling eggs, popcorn, chicken, leafy greens, everything … with their product.

When I first met local bacontrepreneurs Justin Esch and Dave Lefkow of J&D’s Foods in 2010, all I knew was that I had been assigned to shoot a video about some “local dudes” who had created “a Kevin Bacon head out of bacon.” Ehhhhhh?

They invited me to J&D’s headquarters south of downtown Seattle to meet face-to-face with their life size Kevin Bacon head. Lefkow would tell me at the time, “Kevin Bacon has earned this. He deserves to be enshrined in bacon.”

Fast forward four bacon-filled years and J&D’s Foods has been on Oprah, The Daily Show, CNN, NY Times, the SeattleInsider page on KIROtv.com and has captured over two billion press impressions for their bacon efforts.

Since creating the business in 2007, J&D’s Foods has launched BaconPop, Baconnaise, Bacon Lip Balm, BaconLube, Bacon Sunscreen, Bacon Croutons – hell, they’ve even created a Bacon Coffin for those who simply, love bacon to death.

This year, the item that will make your stocking dance for the holidays is Bacon Deodorant.  The product goes on sale Nov. 7 and is available to anyone looking to add a little spice to their underarms.

“We realize that everyone loves bacon,” Esch said. “Well, now everyone can smell like it 24 hours a day.”

  • An unknown aged girl went to the hospital with burns to her legs, following an overnight house fire. KRMG’s told the fire started around 2:40 a.m., at a residence on West 50th Court North. The homeowner says he was able to get his daughter, grand daughter and sleeping brother out of the house. So far, firefighters haven't released a cause for the fire.  The homeowner believes fumes from a gas can in the garage may have cause the blaze.   
  • Multiple people had to be rescued early Saturday morning in Rogers County. OTEMS paramedics report a boat started to sink on Oologah Lake just after midnight. “Additional information was received that the boat had its nose in the air, four individuals were in the water, and only one was wearing a PDF (personal flotation device),” an official said. “A Rogers County Deputy spotted what might be the boat south of Winganon Bridge but was unable to determine the precise location. However it was located by the Northwest Water Rescue unit and at 0048 hours the rescue boat reported that it had located the victims and was loading the fourth individual into the boat.” KRMG’s told the victims were hanging onto the hull when they were found. So far, no injuries have been reported.  Officials also haven’t released any names.   We do know the Oklahoma Highway Patrol has taken over the investigation.  
  • Tulsa investigators are looking for a driver who fled the scene, after hitting a male pedestrian late Friday night. Police report the auto-pedestrian collision happened around 11:34 p.m., near East Admiral and North Yale. “The pedestrian victim has been declared deceased at this time,” police said.   Investigators don't have a description of the driver or the car.  Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
  • We know this might start an argument, but according to Business Insider, Oklahoma's most famous band EVER is the Flaming Lips. Business Insider admits the song 'She Don't Use Jelly' is the Norman-based indie rockers only U.S. hit. But they say the band has had many hits in the U.K. and Europe and, even more impressive, three Grammys to their credit. Some on the list are hard to argue with, like Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band in New Jersey or Nirvana in Washington State. You can see the entire list of the most famous bands here.
  • You thought your dog was ugly. The World's Ugliest Dog Contest is celebrating man's best friend's perfect imperfections in California on Friday. The pooches - many of which are adoptable or previously adopted - will face off in a red carpet walk and 'Faux Paw Fashion Show,' organizers said. The contestants are judged on first impressions, unusual attributes, personality and audience reaction. A blind Chihuahua-Chinese Crested mix named Sweepee Rambo bested 16 other homely hounds in last year's competition and waddled away with $1,500, a trophy and a flight to New York with her owner, Jason Wurtz, for media appearances. The then-17-year-old champion proved that third time's the charm after falling short in the competition twice before. By celebrating inner beauty, organizers said they hope to showcase that all dogs, regardless of physical appearance, can be lovable additions to any family. Contest rules prevent owners from intentionally altering their animals to enhance appearance for the purpose of the contest. These pooches are celebrated for their natural ugliness, organizers said.
