    Walmart bacon vs Super overpriced designer bacon

    I recently bought a pack of bacon from applegate farms uncured or whatever and it was alright but the flavor was a bit like crunchy gravel. And the price? holy shit.

    walmarts bacon is delicious. Why are people so against it? And don't say nitrates because we've all been done that road. And not everyone has a the shining beacons of the new age in whole foods and TJ's with which to waste money on the same shit you can get everywhere else for cheaper.

    Some people have ethical/moral objections to the way the pigs are treated. Others worry about the susceptibility of pork to huge variation in PUFA vs. SFA content as a result of their diet. Does that answer your question? Why so grouchy?

    +2. Maybe read up on sustainable ag v. CAFO bullshit. Happens to be pretty important to me. But then again, the idea of stepping foot in a Wal-Mart is about as appealing to me as digging my heart out with a rusty spoon.

    Why a spoon cousin, why not an axe?
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Ahhh... I love the truth.

    Walmart started carrying Hormel uncured natural bacon by me at $4 a pack. Maybe keep an eye out for it?
