From Monday, March 13 through Monday, March 20, 2023 fans can take a shot at the ultimate taste of victory by registering for a chance to win one of 68 commemorative packages of Hardcourt Smoked Hormel Black Label Bacon at Hardcourt.BlackLabelBacon.com.
Each commemorative pack includes a stack Hardcourt Smoked Hormel Black Label Bacon, a certificate of authenticity, collectible maple wood chips and coupons for more Hormel Black Label Bacon products.
To create the limited-edition bacon, the makers of Hormel Black Label Bacon teamed up with Connor Sports, the official court supplier of March’s annual tournament. Connor Sports trimmed the ends of the actual wood used to make this year’s courts creating hardwood maple chips to be used by the smoked meat pros at Hormel Foods. Smoked low and slow over the northern maple wood chips, Hardcourt Smoked Hormel Black Label Bacon infuses the savory strips with the rarified smoke of real March hoops hardwood.
