I don't know about your grocery stores, but our no frills stores here sell 'no name' bacon for a very reasonable price.

What is reasonable over there?

I was thrilled to find my favorite smokery recently started selling their supreme bacon in scrap bits (chunks) for 5 something €/kilo BaconDance.gifwoohoo.gif

My store sells bacon in slabs, not sure if 1 or 2 pounds for around $12 CDN.

We buy our bacon from the Kroger meat dept. Not the prepackaged stuff. We go to the store butcher and get it. The packaged stuff is about $3-5US for 12 oz. The far superior bacon we get is about $4 per pound and is nitrate free. It doesn't make sense but I'm not going to argue with them.

I wonder how much of this bacon issue has to do with the increasing number of people that have started going low carb high fat/Keto/Paleo/etc.

I know part of it is that bacon became a fad food and companies are releasing bacon flavored everything.

This is the very reason we've had both butter and egg shortage these past few years

This has lead to the most excellent development where people keep chickins in their backyards. I can buy eggs from my niece or my sister,

Yes I'd like to have bees too. It's actually an increasingly popular hobby in Finland. You can even have a beehive on your balcony! hyper.gif
