The Cowgirls were on the trail near Dubois, Wyoming, for their annual hunt of the elusive jackalope. They made camp, started frying bacon and soon were surrounded by a Shoshone hunting party. The irresistible smell of sizzling bacon drew them from over a mile away. The Cowgirls invited them to share their meal of buttermilk pancakes with pecan maple syrup and hickory smoked bacon. This became the inspiration for their new popcorn flavor — HAVE BACON WILL TRAVEL.
