Have You Ever Had Canned Bacon?

Asked by GrumpyGram (822points) June 1st, 2010

In the 1960’s I would go to Kmart? or some grocery store and buy a can of bacon slices.They were all spiraled together. Probably took years off my life but it was always meaty, delicious bacon. Anyone else had it?

This site implies it has been off the market for over 20 years but is available once again (although for 10 bucks a can, I may have to skip getting my first taste of canned bacon!)

@Kayak8 Interesting! Thanks! The kind I used to buy was not cooked far as I know and was in a much smaller can. I’d say it was about .5 lb of bacon in a can about 5” tall. And I never thought of it as a camping food. It would have been Perfect for camping!

This shows a video with a taste test of the above-referenced product. What you ate as in the 60s had to be better than this!

Well, could I interest you in some bacon lip-balm? Here

@Kayak8 Neat. That reminds me of spray chocolate. When you’d get a craving you’d simply spray the “chocolate” in your mouth to keep your weight down. ha. But I do have to try that bacon chapstik.

@Kayak8 That was a hilarious video!! The bacon I bought was twisted together in the orginal, long strips and yes, greasy. It did not smell bad and it tasted Very good.
Really !
