Turkey bacon is really good, and goes well with bacon.

Turkey bacon doesn't taste too far from pork bacon. Don't be such a bacon snob, subby.

If you process any meat, and dump in enough chemicals, you can make it taste and look just about any way you want

Lamb bacon is delicious. It's definitely bacon--crispy, fatty, sweet, and smokey--yet it also has that lamb flavor as an undertone. I highly recommend trying it.

Beef bacon is the most disgusting thing i have ever eaten. It's exactly what I would expect dog to taste like.

They're trying way too hard. Bacon is from a pig, the way God intended it to be. Call it something else if not from a pig. Call it, facon..pronounced FAKE-un

bacon is made with pork. all that other crap you are talking about isn't bacon and the FTC will be notified.

From TFA: If it walks like a bacon and quacks like a bacon (and tastes like a bacon) fry it up and stop complaining.

Well, if it walks like a bacon and quacks like a bacon (and tastes like a bacon) WHAT'S THE POINT OF MAKING IT OUT OF ALL THIS OTHER CRAP?!?!

Most turkey bacon needs to be cooked in real bacon grease to be good.

I loves me some turkey bacon too but I think calling it "turkey bacon" is a bit of a misnomer, people expect it to taste exactly like pork but it does not. If you're just expecting an interesting bacon-like meat product that isn't exactly like pork bacon turkey bacon is awesome! But it is its own sort of food.

Can we agree that beef bacon is farking weird?

The first think I said was DUCK BACON & was not impressed. I won't judge it (officially or in written verbs), but I like my bacon to come from that filthy, delicious, sweet, supple, animal.

Here's a fact not a lot of people know: given the choice, pigs would rather cool off in water. Farmers usually just give them mud pits, however.

I wish that "being someone who hasn't seen Pulp Fiction" were some kind of banning offense here on Fark. Also, that particular line by Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) gets quoted in the comments here every time pork is even mentioned in a story.

You mean like the guy/gals writing stupid articles that suggest foodies would prefer one component (like bacon and drool over them) over any other meal component? That's like saying all teachers are stuck-up authoritarians that can't lord it over adults, so they do it to kids.

Some is awful, some is amazing; there is no in between. Getting some on a sandwich from a good kosher deli is normally the best way to get the good stuff but I've heard that Rubashkin Aaron's Beef Fry is about the closest to actual pork bacon you can get.

Random bacon story: A friend was starting to try meats after having been raised vegetarian her whole life. One day she came up to me and told me in a conspiratorial tone: "I, uh, tried some bacon at breakfast... It was really good!."

Veggie bacon is the Debbil! It says so right on the package.
 
2012-07-01 11:35:39 AM  
Duck bacon might have enough fat content to be interesting. The rest of those, no way.

Beef bacon is a poor substitute for the real thing, but for a white boy in Malaysia who's been deprived for several weeks, it's OK.

>>>survived on the Chinese food in Malaysia. Things cooked with genuine lard are sooooo good.

Self-described "foodies" do tend to douchbaggery, I agree. Though, aren't people looking down on others for trying out nontraditional foods their own kind of foodie-like douchbag? (I guess I'm responding to other Farkers here, you're responding to the article directly.)

Turkey bacon is better than pork bacon.

I make my own bacon. From Pork Belly, from Pork Jowl, from Beef Plate... I have a whole smoked pork belly, two beef plate primals and a half dozen pork jowls in the chest freezer right now.

They are all tasty, but, yes, all different in flavor and texture.
 
2012-07-01 11:45:21 AM  
i'd eat the heck out of some foie gras bacon, but the whole idea of turkey bacon is awful. i'd rather eat TVP bacon.

and let's everyone stop saying 'foodies'. if we ignore it, it will go away.
 
2012-07-01 11:46:32 AM  
Bacon comes from pork bellies. End of story. I don't care what you do with the meat from other animals---I'd probably enjoy it. But don't call it bacon.

/Turkey "bacon" is an abomination
//People who say "you can't tell the difference" are either liars or idiots
 
2012-07-01 11:49:54 AM  
Bacon comes from pigs. Everything else is just crap. And don't even get me started on the fake turkey everything. That stuff is nasty.

/Just was informed by Mrs. Fool that there is no bacon for my Sunday morning breakfast today, so I'm a bit bitter.
//We're having her homemade chorizo instead. It comes a close second.
