MADISON, Wis., Aug.  4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Just when you thought bacon couldn't get any better, Oscar Mayer introduces the newest innovation from the Oscar Mayer Institute for the Advancement of Bacon (OMIFAB): Bacon Jerky.

OMIFAB is dedicated to unlocking bacon's deepest mysteries for the benefit of bacon lovers everywhere, and today, they made one more bacon dream come true. Starting today, bacon-lovers can now snack on bacon throughout the day in an easy, on-the-go bacon jerky pouch. Oscar Mayer Bacon Jerky is available in two tantalizing flavors including Bourbon Barbecue and Teriyaki Ginger.

The bold snack, made of 100 percent real bacon, is not only a source of delicious bacon goodness, but it's also an excellent source of protein, at 11g per serving.

"It's obvious that people love bacon," said Sarah Jones, senior brand manager for Oscar Mayer Bacon. "But we know not everyone has time to whip out their skillet to make some throughout the day. With Bacon Jerky, Oscar Mayer is providing bacon enthusiasts with an easy and satisfying way to snack on bacon while on the move."
