The one in Beachwood, OH has it most of the time. I think it sells out quickly--once I could only find one package of it, and it was hidden among the non-organic stuff..
I just checked the label on it though, and it does have <1% of the cane syrup... but I'm not too bothered, as far as I know I can't get bacon off a local farmer and a tiny bit of sugar won't kill me.
When I first saw a line of Plumrose bacon with the "Sugar Free" label, I laughed and checked the other packages. No sugar. Fast-forward a few months, and their normal line now has sugar. So now our main purchase is their sugar-free product. The only catch is, most grocery stores don't carry iy. We'll literally stop there for just the bacon.
Buy pork belly, cut into bacon slices, fry.
Bingo. Bacon with no nitrates or sugar.
I buy side pork, since the only no nitrate and low sugar bacon I can find here in at Costco. Its not grass fed though and really not worth maintaining a membership there for bacon.
Would you have an easier time switching to sausage? I prefer it, personally, and non-nitrated sausage is easier to find. I would say, maybe save the sugar bacon for special occasions? Or, side pork and make you own bacon. A "meat market" (this is Wisconsin) sometimes has GIANT slabs of side pork. Like, 6+lbs worth. Again, not grass fed but damn.
I just received a shipment from US Wellness. I haven't tried the bacon yet (I bought ends and not slices since I chop it up anyway for recipes), but it is sugar free. I ordered ribs, soup bones and a few beef/lamb steaks just to try it out. I can find grass fed meat here in WI, but not always the cuts I want.
I would love to find a place that sells quality pork belly. I had it at a restaurant this summer and fell in love.
