Product Details

We've been talking about Bacon in-house for a long time. It's a flavor with a house-filling aroma and a crunchy irresistible taste that is almost impossible to reproduce without just pulling out a pan and frying up a few mouth-watering slices. But who can do that everyday? Finally, finally! we have a batch of liquid natural bacon flavoring that is the essence of that earthy browned meat of slab-cut bacon, a touch of hickory and a suggestion of that tasty bit of fat --in both its aroma and taste. Yet, go ahead and see the ingredient list and analysis below. It's a Zero on everything that makes bacon tasty but unhealthy. Dieticians will say, "Yay! Finally!"

We tried very hard to keep the pricing exactly the same as all of our other flavors. But the truth is, to offer really good bacon, it costs us more than our blueberry or any other natural ingredients by a factor of more than two. So as it is, we're introducing the Bacon as our least profitable item, but we get to truthfully say --we didn't cut any corners in its flavor design, so that we could have the maximum "wow factor" and best bacon product out there!

Its taste character is subtle and "true", yet it will permeate as an elegant background into anything you want. It does not have the salt of fried up bacon (you can add you own and this will take to it nicely); and it is not further dressed-up with any maple (that you can add separately, with our Grade-A style Maple flavor).

Just to get your creative wheels turning, think of this as a secret background addition to your gravies, soups and salad dressings. It is excellent also when a touch is added into Bloody Marys and Gazpacho. And it permeates better than bacon bits into dips and mayonnaise. And of course when making egg dishes, it will quickly lend a gentle bacon background into scrambies and omelettes. For the creative folks who want to create their own Bacon / Chocolate concoctions, this 2 ounce bottle will become a key ingredient.

For vegans, yes this is vegan. But 🙂 this Bacon was designed to please the palate of a real meat-lover and bacon enthusiast/critic. We would like to challenge any customer to show us or tell us of another product that has a better bacon flavor personality than this one.

To prepare for our flavor design, we cooked up many different styles of bacon and even some expensive locally-smoked bacon from yogurt-fed stock that ends up in some of Boston's most selective restaurants. We also taste-tested many products that are "pre-flavored" with bacon --both artificially and naturally. During our own in-house kitchen tests of our natural bacon, the flavor came out too powerfully and we almost introduced this in a bottle that would let you "mist" it onto your eggs or salad dressings or into exotic mayonnaise creations. But that would only produce a "surface effect" without complete and desirable integration into our food and drink. So now, a full year after this pipe dream began, we are releasing (the first one that we know of) natural Bacon flavoring that is concentrated at easy-to-use levels to jazz up single serving beverages and small portion meals -- as well as an elegant "finishing" ingredient in pots of chili, stews and many other imaginative dishes.

Bacon Uses and Tips

In experimental uses and taste tests, the Bacon “behaves best” as a background flavor when you add it into any base that contains fats already.

[The beauty of it is that you are not compounding your recipe with even more fat of the bacon, but you’re introducing natural background tastes of hickory smoked bacon]

Several Ideas to give your own creativity a jump start:

Whipped Cream Cheese spreads/dips

Butter (melted and seasoned—always add in after you shut off the burner)

Sour Cream (can add chives for baked potatoes or as an add-in to dips)

Salad Dressings (because of olive oil or other oils, bacon works well)

Gravies/Pan Drippings (from any chicken, pork or beef)

Meat-based Home Made Chile (add in at the end of simmer phase)

Tacos/Burritos

Sautéed Onions (always add in after you shut off the burner)

Several Non-Fat Exceptions that work also:

Bloody Maries

Ketchup

Oatmeal

Maple Syrup

Muffin Mixes and Corn Bread Mixes

How to get the DunkinDonuts blueberry coffee flavor
The flavors that I have used so far are: Blueberry (5 times), butterscotch, maple, caramel creme brulee, custard creme
And I use the flavors in: COFFEEEEEEEE!!!!
Recipe or Flavor Hints to Other People: See review

I'm about to tell you how to get the closest thing you can get to dunkin donuts blueberry coffee.
OK. so I have spent well over $200 on trying to duplicate dunkin donuts blueberry iced coffee...I've tried all the different syrups and extracts and bought every blueberry flavored coffee out there... I've even tried bribing the people at Dunkin to sell me the blueberry flavor (kinda kidding).
What I found out is that they use a sugar free,unsweetened blueberry flavor and use caramel swirl to get the amazing sweet flavor.
Sooo. I discovered this Blueberry essence and was going to give it my final attempt because I was tired of wasting money..and boy am I glad I did.
First..its important that you buy Eight O'clock coffee, Florida berry shortcake coffee. Its in the pink and black bag. Trust me...this is the only coffee flavor that works. (I've tried their Blueberry.but it's not as good and strong flavor as the berry shortcake)
I prefer cold coffee... so I do one heaping scoop for every 2 cups in my coffee machine. I usually make a large batch at a time so I make 12 cups and add 6 large, heaping scoops of the berry coffee.
Once it's brewed, prepare your coffee like normal. Add however much plain creamer you prefer. (I use half and half) then. add in however much sugar you like ..(I use turbinado and coconut sugar because it gives a caramelly flavor in my opinion)..but any sweetener will work.
And finally... Open up the blueberry essence and shake it in. It depends how strong you like it. Start out with 2 or 3 drops per cup and then work your way up until its how you like it. I like really strong blueberry flavor..so I add at least 10 drops per every 16 ounce coffee.
I really hope this helps and ENJOY

Never going back to cans
The flavors that I have used so far are: Peach, Blueberry, Raspberry (Jam Style)
And I use the flavors in: Soda Stream

I am so excited about finding these flavor essences! I recently purchased a Soda Stream, because we always drink sparkling water, but we're trying to cut down on our waste and save a little money in the process. These flavors make it more of a privilege than an alternative. SOOOOO beyond what I was hoping for! The Raspberry Jam Style is my favorite!!!! No sugar, but it tastes just like jam. Thank you, Mick and Co. for doing what you're doing! I am going to recommend this to everyone I know that also drinks sparkling water in excess. I have a diabetic family friend who is already intrigued!

by Anita from Oregon on Flavor Essence
Delicious!
The flavors that I have used so far are: Coconut, Strawberry, Peach, Black Cherry
And I use the flavors in: sparkling water, shave ice

This is our second purchase, the first being off Amazon a year back. Happy to be ordering direct instead. We originally bought a few flavors to use in our little shave ice machine in the summers. I just received my 10-pack, since we've discovered how easy it is to use them to flavor our sparkling water. The bonus is less waste (cans and plastic bottles) since we purchased a home carbonating contraption 🙂

Absolutely in Love
The flavors that I have used so far are: Lemon, Peach, Mango, Raspberry, Blueberry
And I use the flavors in: SodaStream Sparkling Water
Recipe or Flavor Hints to Other People: Trust the directions, start with a drop or two and add more as preferred!

I randomly came across this company in my online search for sparkling water flavorings, and am I ever so glad that they came across my path. I had made a decision to switch to a SodaStream and make my own flavored sparkling water, the only issue was was finding flavorings to use. Almost everything had terrible reviews or was sweetened, and I am far too lazy to bother making my own reductions or something from scratch. This company and their product 100% fit the bill, and I decided to give them a try. They are so delicious, taste so natural, and they do not lie when a little goes a long way. So I won’t be running out after only a week or two of daily use. They have got every single checkbox with these flavorings, and they have gained another loyal customer. If they ever make a lime/key lime flavor, you better believe I will all over that!

Awesome Flavors
The flavors that I have used so far are: Blueberry, raspberry, coconut, pineapple, banana mocha, pistachio, cinnamon, lemon, maple, graham, chocolate (milk & dark), mango, peach
And I use the flavors in: Coffee, lattes, tea, yogurt, smoothies, and baked goods
Recipe or Flavor Hints to Other People: Black cherry & toasted almond (taste similar to amaretto); coconut & toasted almond; cinnamon & graham; blueberry & raspberry (mixed berries)

I love Flavor Essence! These flavorings are an awesome way to infuse flavor without the added sugar or artificial sweetener. I’ve been using these for over a year in order to control the sugar content in my coffee, tea, smoothies, etc. , and I keep coming back. I would like to see lime, pecan and/or butter toffee flavors added. Thanks Mick for truly wonderful products!

The flavors that I have used so far are: Blueberry

I use the Blueberry in iced tea and it’s great. It has no after taste like what you get in restaurants. Can’t wait to try more flavors.
