    Good news is demand should drop, so prices should go down.

    Walmart sells pork belly - at least in Calgary - sliced up nice in a little stryrofoam meat package - looks like a pale version of bacon.

    Well, in Japan you can't really get bacon in its traditional form. There's stuff that's basically just thin sliced pork rashers, uncured, no additives. Looks like bacon, cooks like bacon. Tastes like pork. I like it more now, but at first it was a little disappointing. I do miss the occasional cured bacon though.

    As for sugar, I'd say that's the least of the concerns with bacon additives. Try to get nitrite-free, organic bacon if you can. If its intensively farmed hormone-laden additive-stuffed bacon, it's no better than eating the patty from a big mac.

    I tried the same thing. It looked and tasted very... gray.
