Our good friends at The Jolly Hog are proud to announce following on from the huge success of their four varieties of sausage with Ocado, they are launching the latest tasty addition to the family. Jolly Good Bacon.
That’s right bacon…the most loved of all foods. And not just any bacon; dry cured, smoked back bacon made from the finest freedom foods pork. Don’t pretend your mouth isn’t watering. Think of the sarnies you can make this weekend with that!
The Jolly Hog is a family business in pursuit of the perfect range of porky treats. With years of experience in hog roasting and sausage making behind them, Michelin starred chef endorsements and thousands of satisfied customers along the way, creating their own bacon was just a matter of time.
Founded by RPA Alumni member and former Harlequins and Wales forward, Olly Kohn, alongside his equally pork mad brothers, Max and Josh. The business, which was started by Olly at home with his sausage making machine, has been growing steadily for the last eight years; initially cooked and sold pitch-side at Harlequins games, the delicious, high quality sausages and bacon are now available nationwide in 39 Sainsbury’s stores, Sainsbury’s Online, Ocado and a large number of pitch-side Jolly Hog vans on match day.
Olly a former RPA Player Representative for Harlequins, spoke of his excitement surrounding the new bacon range.
“Of course we love bacon and sausage, doesn’t everyone?”
“The bacon sandwich, bangers and mash are a cornerstone of British culture, people are incredibly passionate about it. Our dream is that our rashers and bangers are the ones filling the sarnies that people love for their whole lives, that would be pretty special.”
The new bacon range includes:
Double smoked dry cured back bacon – Expertly double smoked with Beech and Oak for a deep unforgettable flavor.
Unsmoked dry cured back bacon – Thick cut and dry cured, the perfect all-rounder.
The Proper Porker – 84% pork, bursting with a juicy pork flavor, balanced with sage and seasoning’s. It’s a classic!
