High Salt

2 stars

Too much salt

Thin, excess fat and no flavour.

1 stars

I have been buying Tesco smoked bacon for years and the quality has rapidly gone down hill! It’s too thin, has excess fat and has no flavour. Once it’s cooked it shrivels to nothing. I’ve just had the worst bacon sandwich of my life and I’m not sure I can ever forgive Tesco for this :(

Avoid at all costs!

1 stars

WARNING! Avoid this product, it is STUFFED with nitrites and nitrates and water. When grilling or frying the bacon rapidly oozes the above-mentioned, leaving it sitting in a LAKE of greasy, thick, white goo. One has to use 2/3 heavy duty kitchen roll pieces to mop up this poison, and still the meat issues forth with thick white globules. ZERO out of FIVE. Avoid this chemical stew!

I use this bacon for my cooked breakfasts, but would be suitable to use in any bacon recipes. WHAT A PRICE, BRILLIANT. An excellent quality, plus so tasty. Did not need my usual two rashers of bacon. Well done Tesco


2 stars

Looks good in the packet (what doesn't these days) but so pumped full of water that when you try to fry a rasher or two and enjoy bacon and eggs in the morning so much liquid comes out that you end up not frying this bacon but boiling it. All I could do with it to use it up and not waste it was to treat it as cooking bacon, cut it up with kitchen scissors and use it to make 'bacon and beans'.

spot on sizzler..

4 stars

Lovely .. thick.. salty bacon.. rashers retain their size throughout cooking.. spot on in a sandwich with tesco fruity brown sauce.. & a nice cuppa rosey..

Nitraticiously bacony

4 stars

Quite nice, the flavour it good and it is not quite as watery as the danish water pigs but these ones have grown up near the water too, so get soggy if you fry them at least at first. also, not using nitrates would be a cool thing. would be healthier and every little helps, doesn't it tesco?

possibly the best bacon i've tasted in a long time

More fat than meat

A bit too salty.

Lovely thick bacon but it's also incredibly salty almost too salty. If you're not a lover of salty bacon you might want to look at another product.
