Shhhh…. We just learned this, and are spreading the hot gossip, on the down-low… did you know that the "B" in BLT doesn't stand for bread? It stands for bacon! Wonders abound! So you don't need a loaf of the gluten stuff to get your BLT on here, with crunchy lettuce providing an excellent, and healthy, stand-in. But not too healthy: we've got both ground pork and bacon here to fill your porcine quota. Now spread the word.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.
