Bringing Home the Fully Cooked Bacon

Posted inThe Daily Heller

Bacon anyone? Oscar Meyer, who gave wiener new meaning and made Bologna into something other than an Italian city known for its leaning towersand Bolognese sugo, has answered our long-held desire, to avoid beingsplattered by frying bacon fat. Fully-cooked bacon enables the baconlover to eat the popular pork product without having to waste naturalgas or paper towels.

Oscar M isn’t the only fully cooked pork product. Good Housekeeping has done a taste test. Tyson, Farmland, Hatfield (“great taste anytime”), Hormel, Maple Leaf and Schwan‘s have joined the pork pit. And now anyone, anywhere can have bacon on the fly (so to speak).

The downside, of course, is we’ll miss the enticing bacon aroma. Butsacrifice is what progress is all about. Still, does the package haveto look so unappetizing? Jerky anyone?

Speaking of bacon, have you heard about the micro pig fad in the UK? Look up the “mini pig”.
