Difficult to review such a product because, of course, it ain't bacon. The flavour and the texture are quite different: like good smokey bacon crisps, and the texture is quite like well-fried fat (but not greasy). As long as you accept these limitations, it's tasty and the texture holds together well.
The best Bacon alternative
I've had lots of vegan/vegetarian bacons in the past and this is buy far the best. Perfect in a baguette with ketchup! Handles like bacons and cooks just as quickly but with out the fat. A very good animal friendly alternative.
So yummy and really crisps up!! Definitely cook for longer than 4 mins. I really enjoyed it and recommend it for a Veggie bacon alternative x
Cant get better meat free bacon, so far.....
Brilliant; positively the best non-meat bacon there is, and I have tried a few. I cook mine without oil, and this still sizzles in the pan, smells oh-so bacony, and crisps up nicely. If you like the oil taste on your food then I am sure this will cook in the 3 minutes they state. I cook mine for about 6 minutes on a middling to high heat and it tastes great. Another great with this is there is no shrinkage, of the horrible chemical salty scum that comes off other bacons, and very low fat content: 2 uncooked rashers (36g) provides 4.6g of fat, of which only 0.5g is saturated fat, which equates to 3% of the recommended allowance. Not bad at all if you fancy something naughty in your sandwich at a weekend. 10 rashers to a pack make this a must have in the freezer for when I feel peckish or have meat eaters (not the cat) around for a quick meal :)
Not Bad, Better Than Quorn
Decent, taste a bit like bacon flavoured crisps. If you want something that tastes more like bacon for the same price, I'd highly recommend THIS Bacon instead.
Couldn't get rid of the taste
Firstly the taste was nothing special. The way they sold it I was expecting a next-level experience. It was not, the taste was no better than other vegetarian bacons. If anything, it was blander. Five portions is quite a lot, it'd be better to have a smaller pack or have it divided so you don't spend all week eating the same thing. But my main issue is that it repeated on me something wrong and gave me indigestion. I could taste it 12 hours later whenever I burped - that's not nice and other brands don't do that to me.
This naked bacon is delicious and crisps up lovely
This naked bacon is delicious and crisps up lovely. Will definitely buy again.
Like many vegan/meatless bacons, you have to work
Like many vegan/meatless bacons, you have to work with this stuff to get the best out of it, but it’s worth the effort, and I so wanted to like it ‘cos of its appearance even raw, it has a real look of bacon with the mixed red/white layers… the directions are plain wrong saying 3 minutes, I think on any level of heat they’re going to take longer to get crispy… but basically don’t be scared, even when it looks like it’s gonna fall apart…just cook it till it’s crispy, trust me… then, and only then, this is the best vegan bacon I’ve tried. (Also don’t cook frozen mushrooms in the same pan like I did the 2nd try, they do not respond well to liquid…) I’m in love now with this in a bun with a fry’s chicken burger, hash brown, vegan mayo, ketchup and a drop of Franks sauce, and I can’t wait to make vegan pigs in blankets with it at christmas - it says you can freeze it too which is another bonus but I’ll comment on whether that affects the quality at a later date…
Claim to be bacon but didn't understand they where
Claim to be bacon but didn't understand they where meat free. Very misleading.
