Silly question but I was reading last night about a woman in the states who is so prepared for hurricanes she has BACON IN A BOX already cooked and ready to go. Has anyone down here seen this? I am one who thinks bacon goes with everything!

Yes! It is true.
I can't remember who makes it.......Oscar Mayer maybe. It does came is a box, and is not refrigerated.
I have had it....not quite as good as cooking it fresh.
All you do is take it out of the box and microwave for a few seconds.
A little pricey too!! (as compared to cook it yourself bacon).

I bought some in April in plaza e, stx, reduced as almost expired. It was expensive reduced, can't imagine the regular price. Was not bad considering, but only a few ounces, and it was not the Oscar Meyer, but i don't know what brand, sorry.

Well, can't microwave it after a storm. Thought maybe I could take it out of the box and eat it. Knew it was too good to be true. Thank all you bacon lovers out there.

Every time I see the title of this thread, I think of the Emmy winning SNL song with instructions that begin, "Cut a hole in a box..." I'm probably the only person on this forum who knows what I'm talking about, but thanks for amusing me!

dntw8up, I know what you mean. I've also seen some dogs dressed up for the Barkus parade in New Orleans as "Tail in a Box." 🙂

i have used the bacon, it is fully cooked so yes you can eat it right out of the box. it is thinner than regular bacon and it is very tasty. many manufacturers make it now not just oscar. i have only used oscar though and have not used since i lived in the keys. i remember back in the late 90's i went to my local mall, they used to have a place where they took you to ask you questions about new products and you could take them home and try them, thats where i first tried them and the dryell sheets too. that was years before any were put on the market.

greetings

my daughter eats meat and thinks that bacon in a box is terribly nasty, but she did say she would eat it on a sandwich if that was all there was.....lol.
seems a bit unnatural to me.

have bought it and it does not shrink up like the other does nor have the nasty grease.

probably great after a storm, slap it on the grill to warm it up. can't imagine eating it right out of the box. wouldn't that be like beef jerky?

Long time ago, in the early 80's, K-Mart used to sell canned bacon. It was fantastic, but saltier than most people like. It was not cooked, you would open up the can (had one of those hook things that you wound... built in can opener) and inside would be a slab of bacon, rolled up in wax paper, unroll, fry up... and yummmmm. I've looked for it many times as its a great staple in the pantry but I haven't seen it in years. If anyone knows about it... post!

Google is great! I just answered my own question by searching for it online. The product was made in Hungary and was Celebrity brand. http://www.canned-bacon.com/ has the whole story. Still not available in US markets again but they are bringing a fully cooked version into stateside markets. The website http://www.mredepot.com has a lot of cool hurricane preparedness smart food products. Check it out!

This is my favorite thread of the year 😀

Sometimes it's nice to forget about the unanswerable and insurmountable problems of life/VI and focus on the little things that bring joy.

But now I can't get the "Beggin' Strips" commercial dog outta my head (BaconBaconBacon!)

Yes,i remember the bacon in a can,it was one of my provisions when I left the states to come here!
Yup, the built in can openers!!!! (thanks for the trip down bacon memory lane)!!
It`s been over 20 years!
Awsome stuff,always tasty, don`t know where/how i got it.
Ah,everyone knows,everything is better with bacon!
Back in the day, we would cook alot of pasta on long boat trips as the pasta & sauce didn`t require refridgeration.
And i always thought,hind was a good replacement for shrimp& most meats.
But then,there is bacon!
Back in that day, in the bahamas, a small pizza would set you back $30,so you would cook what you had.

Opening up a can of bacon always made life so much better!

Yoder's? Sounds like an Amish/Mennonite name.

I don't know if the bacon is Amish or not but the name Yoder is. We have Yoder's dairys in Virginia Beach, Va. They delivered the best milk and ice cream I have ever tasted.

The Yoder's brand is fully cooked. The Celebrity one was not. I think I'm going to be ordering me some just for the fun of trying it out! 🙂

Bacon in a box is like a turkey bacon and a turkey burger, diet milkshake and diet chocolate cake. Yes they exist, but do you really want to eat them?
