Hormel® Microwave Ready bacon

…is not bacon.

There, I said it.

It does not look like bacon. Instead of the precooked strips you get in most packages that are marked as “microwavable.” Nor does it look like raw bacon you get in regular packages. It looks like some meat that is processed to resemble raw bacon but.. is not.

It doesn’t cook like bacon. You don’t throw individual strips in a pan to fry or on a plate to microwave. 4 strips come in these plastic bags with a weird, fabricy towel thing. To soak up grease, I guess. It doesn’t work. The bag expands as you microwave it and the “bacon” takes on a slightly more bacon-like appearance. Almost, but not quite.

The thing I love about bacon is its taste. And smell. A smell that evokes your tastebuds to reminisce. But this product does not smell or taste like bacon. It does not hit the spot. Let me tell you, when you’re eating bacon, you do so because it hits the spot. Not for its nutritious value.

Nice try Hormel. Well, not really. Not a very nice try at all. And I don’t like being tricked, either! Microwave Ready Bacon. Pfft!

    I cannot. You can go to the Hormel website and see if there is a store locator, but I am obviously not affiliated with the company at all and this review is several years old, so I don’t even know if it’s still available.
