Who knew? I would have NEVER tried cooked bacon without a ton of my friends recommending it. This was really nice for our busy school mornings.

I thought the price was a bit steep, I know I can get uncooked bacon for less, but it was comparable to other local grocery store costs. It had good flavor, and if you’re looking for that high convenience option, you will want to try this. 1 pound is $9.99.
