The maple syrup flavored one? That’s the one I buy and love.
Sounds exactly how I like mine. I buy mine at Costco, a maple syrup flavored one imported from Canada. They now carry it as a KS brand but I preferred the earlier version that was a Canadian brand name.
Our local meat market makes what has to be the best bacon I ever tasted. Its not real salty like most store bought bacon and it isnt as greasy or fatty as the store bought stuff. After Heans bacon you dont want anything else.
The Sundancer really likes a good smoky bacon fried crisp with my waffles or pancakes with syrup. Somehow the taste is perfect with breakfast with a cup of Mello Joy dark roast brewed heavy.
Unfortunately with the Atkins thing which I have been doing for better than six months does not allow it. I still desire it and in addition, I like Krispy Kreme with my bacon.

I don’t broil or microwave bacon. I bake it. Line a cookie sheet with with foil and bake at 350 until crispy. No flipping required. Dry it on paper towels and put it in the center of a grilled cheese on rye.
While I don’t think it was recently mentioned on a recent "food movies" thread, have I then got a movie for you:
1993’s "Wrestling Ernest Hemingway" starring the late Richard Harris and the still-tangoing Robert Duvall.
I am glad to know that someone else doesn’t want lettuce and tomato on their bacon sandwich. I like a plain bacon sandwich also. I like my bacon crisp. Can’t stand limpy bacon
The way I do my bacon is with the burner turned to low. Takes a long time but you don’t have to watch it. If it is good fatty bacon it is almost a confit.
I like almost any bacon (except Canadian). You can keep the expensive lean and thick sliced bacon tho. I like it thin, fatty, and crisp.
My wife and I don’t like tomatoes on sandwiches and I don’t like lettuce on mine either (it’s a mechanical thing, too slippery) so we don’t have BLTs we just have bacon sandwiches. Talk about a comfort food.
Mr. Mayor, did you get a chance to stop in West, Tx and try the bacon?
Good bacon, ah yes, a thing of the past. We can get it in Tokyo but pretty plasticized. Thick, thin, glad we can get it at all.
Mayor, you mentioned a bit ago –
Jowl bacon. My mom used to use it for clam chowder and damned if, when I go home to Vancouver, I can find it. They look at me blankly. Does it have an alias?
More importantly, clothier, congratulations on being the first person on the planet to utter the words "coy" and "swing" in the same sentence.
So, your parents swing ? (I can’t be the only one to decipher that oh-so-obvious "wanna try some bacon" line, can I?)
My father slaughters a pig every couple of months , and i always get fresh pork chops,sausage,bacon..thick thick bacon that is to die for…he also gives me fresh beef and deer and frog legs,fish,boar,turtle,rabbit…..you know all the meat that publix wont sell.

Bacon is in the same league as bourbon and cigars, they are horrible for your body but wonderful to consume.
One of my favorite uses for bacon is in spagetti sauce — it doesn’t take much to give it a wonderful smokey rich flavor — even if you’re just using Ragu — it can really jazz it up!
RickF: Thanks for the article. I had never thought of bacon like that.
