Archie McPhee’s Bacon Boutique

Gummy Bacon Taste-testers

We were on the Food Network last night! It was an episode of Unwrapped that focussed on, what else, Bacon! We got an interesting peek into their production process.

They filmed at our store over a year before the segment was shown on TV. If you look at the picture of the two adorable customers above, you’ll notice Bacon Pennants behind them which have been discontinued. Not only that, but the whole store moved from Ballard to Wallingford! You know, unimportant details like that.

They filmed for four hours to get the three minutes they ended up using. Shana’s greatest fear was realized. They used footage of her flossing with Bacon Floss in the finished story. I had never thought about it, but I guess it is unglamorous to floss on TV.

As soon as they post the show, we’ll link to it. In the meantime, if you are a new customer just click here to make all your bacon dreams come true!

    Makes me glad I got a Bacon pennant when I did.
