Perhaps I’ve been lucky but the bacon I’ve been sent is absolutely lovely. Very lean and very tasty.
There was a good inch of fat; I cut it off and weighed it - almost a quarter of the pack was fat. Going for the Finest one next time.
Why swap Unsmoked bacon for Smoked??
We love it!
It's reasonably priced, cooks well and tastes delicious. A real favourite in our house.
Surprisingly much cheaper than other bacon but tastes just as good!
I was actually pleasantly surprised with this bacon.. I only bought it as I was curious and as it was only going in a pasta dish I thought it didn't really matter if it was thin and rubbish. It wasn't actually too thin, though it did fall apart quite a lot when taking it out of the packet and when cutting it up. I wouldn't use it for a bacon sandwich, however in a pasta dish or similar I would surprisingly recommend.
Very poor quality
Grilled the 300 grams of this bacon and noticed a lot of steam coming off, when cooked my husband weighed the cooked bacon and it was 110 grams. The fat and water is 190 grams which is totally unacceptable. With this amount of water it makes this the most expensive bacon ever.
This bacon was full of water which I had to drain off in the pan; it was at least 30% fat and fell to pieces when taking it out of the packaging. Apart from this it has good smokey taste.
Good cooking bacon
Varying quality. I buy this in almost every shop. Sometimes it is watery, sometimes not. I find it is a good standard bacon for e.g. quiches, but for a Sunday morning full English I would not use as I cannot be sure of quality. Flavour is good, though, when the water has evaporated.
As good as any
Perfectly smoked, sometimes thinly cut or thick sliced and among the best.
