My long-awaited delicious 'not bacon' sarnie joy
At first thought I wouldn't like this product because I hate 'smoked' or bbq-flavoured food and on opening the pack the smell of smoke hit me. BUT.... I love it! The smell doesn't permeate the taste, so it is perfect for me AND my hubby will happily eat this rather than bacon. I like it fried with a little oil, and it crisps up lovely. As a vegetarian I have to admit I do miss my bacon sarnie - haven't had one though in 33 years - and so this is a gem of a find because I can now have my 'bacon' sarnie. Give this is a go; best on the market in my opinion. I only tried it because I couldn't get Quorn bacon, gave up trying and then saw this and thought I would give it a go and now won't go back to Quorn. And btw Quorn - your products seem to be getting less available, so you have lost out now. The rashers are quite small, but this makes them crispy and juicy and just delicious. Thankyou guys!
Great product - well done to the manufacturers.
Giving up meat is essential for us but we miss the taste. This product doesn't look like bacon before cooking but is absolutely delicious when browned up. I cannot imagine how they achieve this. Well done!
Try it, but be warned, it is just smoke flavour.
Awful, just tastes of strong smoke and nothing else. It looks like a piece of mackerel with a horrible texture. The taste lingers and it makes your breath smell! The packet says once opened use within 24 hours which is impossible for a single person, I can't see how a previous reviewer made it last 3 days!
Delicious delicious delicious! Love bacon, taste and smell. Hate the bacon fat, and the curling and spitting from cooking. I buy every week now.
Superb !! Amazing !! The smell is simply mmmmm
Absolutely superb in a toasted sandwich. An amazing product !!!

Looks awful raw, but it fries up to be the best bacon sub out there. This in carbonara or a fried egg sandwich is as good as the real thing. And even on pancakes and maple syrup and poached egg. Crisps up to an amazing texture and it’s one less bit of suffering for the poor pigs. Certainly helps on a path to Veganism or just to reduce a bit of suffering in the world whee you can.
We hated it, it’s too thick, odd texture and cheap fake flavour. Not good, don’t recommend.

Cook on foil with a drizzle of oil in the oven, turn once. Dont fry because as its not dead animal it will stick. Im vegan and like lots of usxwe do miss flavours but without the cruelty. Its great! Makes a good sarnie with a blob of tomato sauce. You only need about 3 slices so value wise it lasted 3 days. Great for an alternative flavour any time of the day, just slightly creeped me out how meaty it is 🤢 Otherwise very good , food without the screams 😋
A great Bacon substitute.
They smell like heavily smoked bacon, they look like bacon with all the fat trimmed off, and they taste like bacon. However, the texture can let them down if you don't cook them properley. Get the oil hot and cook till they are crispy. Yum. Great in a toasted sandwich. Cut into small pieces before cooking and toss in a salad. Great.
OMG love it, I have topped pizza's with it , put it in quiche, and had a good old fry up, This stuff is untoppable in my book.
