BOYNTON BEACH (CBS12) — Giving a bouquet of roses is so cliché these days. But giving the gift of bacon, rose-shaped chocolate-covered bacon- is where it's at.
Meet the two female entrepreneurs behind BaconBoxes.com, 21-year-old Logan Rae and 28-year-old Kimmie Hruda.
These bacon business babes' treats are so sizzling hot, they were sold out for Valentine's Day.
The ladies tell CBS12/CW34 News Anchor Michele Wright that they continue to sell out!
The duo launched Bacon Boxes just last year and since, business is booming.
The company is planning on expanding from current location to make way for a much larger kitchen and storage space for their growing product line.
IT'S MORE THAN JUST BACON
Kim and Logan make sure they use the highest quality bacon possible.
Their secret? Perfect ingredients.
BaconBoxes uses Berkshire free-range, certified naturally grown hogs that are 'au naturale.'
So that means no hormones, no steroids and no antibiotics.
Kimmie and Logan cut up the pork belly product in the kitchen and actually give it a daily 'massage' to help break it down into the perfect bacon product.
It's then cured in house, and smoked. The bacon is then hand carved into thick slices and hand rolled into mouth watering bacon-rose buds.
Bacon Boxes are made to order, assembled and sealed into an FDA approved food grade package.
It contains a rosebud-shaped Berkshire bacon piece that comes wrapped in a satin bow with the option to include a personalized card.
The gift boxes are then put into a food grade box with an ice pack and shipped all over the world.
There is a wide variety of flavors to chose from: S'mores, dark or milk chocolate, barrel aged bourbon and for a limited time, pumpkin-spiced.
There are also special occasion boxes for Anniversaries, Weddings, and Birthdays.
Boxes range in price starting from $25 to $200.
