Let Them Eat Bacon! Wright® Brand Celebrates 100th Anniversary with Limited-Edition Bacon Cake

Purchase the savory treat, available for $19.22

Vernon, TX December 8, 2022 – Everyone knows that everything tastes better with bacon. As Wright® Brand’s 100th anniversary year nears conclusion, the brand has created a first-of-its-kind savory cake featuring the mouthwatering experience of their thick-cut, real wood-smoked bacon. Introducing the Bacon Cake – four pounds of decadent goodness, with layers of cheddar scallion cornbread, sandwiched together with a sweet corn bacon filling. The delectable cake is topped with a salted hot honey cream cheese bacon spread, and of course, Wright Brand Bacon. The limited-edition bacon cake is available for purchase in select markets online, while supplies last.

The brand team partnered with Darnell Reed, chef and owner of Chicago-based Luella’s Southern Kitchen to develop the perfect recipe. In addition to the Southern-inspired ingredients, the Wright Brand Bacon Cake features bacon rosettes and 1.5 pounds of bacon incorporated throughout the cake.

“Turning 100 is a major milestone and we wanted to do something big to close out our year-long celebration,” said Cal Tharp, senior brand manager for Wright Brand bacon. “We kicked off our anniversary by launching a bacon-inspired fragrance and later in the year took over the town where the brand was founded, Vernon, Texas, with a one-day bacon festival. The only thing missing was the cake! We wanted to give people a way to celebrate our centennial with us in a way that feels distinctly Wright Brand.”
