Smoked bacon without the smoke...
Oh wow, just tried this smoked bacon for the first time! Amazing won't be buying anything else! Just wish I could get the smoked streaky version in Tesco too.
Underwhelmed, Lacking Taste
I've eaten all forms/brands of bacon that Tesco carry by now, and while on paper this is the most healthy lacking nitrites - it's both very much lacking in any taste (smoked or otherwise), and inexplicably more expensive for what is a more simplistic recipe, and budget tasting brand. Packaging also struggles to reseal, and slices seem far too thinly cut. Hand on heart, the most tasteless smoked bacon that I have bought/eaten - definitely disappointed, as I wanted to try swap to a healthier option.
As well as the Simon Howie packs these are lean tasty no white gunk. I found them a little thin and the 'tail' ends tended to rip. But (and here's the killer) they crisp up great under the grill no rind and scarcely any fat. You can eat all of the rasher. I try not to eat too much processed meat so the lack of Nitrate is a big bonus for me Keep these Tesco. John
Was never a bacon fan until I tasted this ! Then y
Was never a bacon fan until I tasted this ! Then you stopped stocking it at Prestwich branch of Tesco ? Why !?
Not value for money - very fatty
The rashers were almost half fat and half meat -not exactly what I thought it would be like as a "healthy" product. Tesco's finest is a much better deal!
Excellent taste. Not giving it five stars because it is so expensive but hoping in time price will go down as more people buy it!
Fantastic bacon. Not full of water so it does not
Fantastic bacon. Not full of water so it does not sizzle down to half its size as soon as it hits the pan like most do these days. No nitrates so slightly less risk of cancer than from other bacons. So much better than all the competition all round. However, I guess due to Brexit it seems we can´t get this bacon any more as it comes from Ireland. Maybe a British farm will sieze the opportunity to produce a proper bacon that is not pumped up with water and nitrates.
Excellent flavour but most importantly without nitrates .
Tasty proper 'naked' bacon
We have previously struggled to find decent tasting bacon without nitrates, but are a big fan of Finne Brogue Naked. It is pretty much as described on the packet - no white slimy residue from nitrates (although there is added water – needed to keep it moist when cooking). Not too salty or smoky, just enough fat to crisp, and doesn’t shrink. It would be perfect if the slices were just a little thicker. For us, it is definitely worth the extra money. Just hope that Tesco keep stocking it.
