Excellent quality - unless you are unlucky
Am a regular buyer, generally enjoying this product as it fries well, releasing enough tasty grease to be able to fry a tasty egg. However, occasionally the quality slips, there being too much fat. Refused a pack some months ago, as could hardly see any flesh!
You get what you pay for!
Very thin and dry's up and not very tasty or flavoursome!
Love this bacon, use as crispy toppings fir soups, pasta, burger as well as the usual way of eating
Slmply the best
The best smoked streaky bacon I have ever had. I shop in most supermarkets and none have better than this. I like my bacon crispy and well cooked without the white liquid left in the frying pan. Just enough fat exuded from bacon to cook the mushrooms and egg!
This was just awful. 95% fat. Cut out the meat
This was just awful. 95% fat. Cut out the meat that I needed for a quiche and threw the rest in the bin. If this is Tesco's Finest, I dread to think what the rest of their bacon is like.
Finest? Finest what?
Zero stars. Should be removed from shelves .. not finest! Not RSPCA / kind pig stuff … "finest" it is not.
Disappointingly only tastes of salt
Just fried 4 slices of this bacon in the pan. Not only was it like four pieces of cardboard when cooked but also like eating a spoonful of salt for each slice. I looked at the ingredients and see that 2 slices contain 9 g. of salt and that daily intake for an adult is 6 g. It was simply horrible and I have thrown the rest of the pack out. What has happened to the delicious bacon of 50 years ago? I cannot find any that isn't overloaded with salt and therefore no taste of bacon whatsoever.
Crispy & tasty
Excellent bacon - easy to cook nice and crisp, with no nasty white "ooze" - excellent taste - most of the times I'd have given it 5 stars, but it can be variable in quality (I've had hugely varied ratio of fat to meat).
A tasty treat
Good flavour, no added water so no white gloop oozing out during cooking. Not too much fat. Ideal for crisped bacon sandwiches.
Chew, chew, chew
That's right: should have been sliced thinner.
