Big Buy Bacon @ Grocery Outlet – Review

August 3, 2010 by admin

Got it today at Grocery Outlet. It’s probably the worst food item I have ever bought. It’s COMPLETELY inedible, you cannot bite through it, you cannot chew it, you cannot digest it. I don’t even want to guess what it’s made from and what stuff it has in it.
Whoever makes it should be ashamed of the product, and Grocery Outlet should be ashamed to sell it.

    you must’ve not had a good package as I will drive 50 miles for the stuff and buy 20 lbs and freeze it, It is the best bacon ever. this is how bacon should be….thick and flavorful.
    This is how bacon was in the 40’s- 60’s…THE BEST

  2. Mike says:

    Flavor? There is no flavor!! This is one of the worst bacon I have ever had. Besides no flavor. The slices vary from very thin to thick. Jard to chew and even if you go through the packages to find the best looking. It shrinks up to almost nothing. Maybe be cheap but this is why. Won’t it buy it again!!!!!

    bought some on trip to Montana. It is the best i’ve tasted from the Carolinas to the west coast. Wish i could buy it here in Texas

  4. Paul says:

    Best bacon by far, great smoke flavor, slice variation is a plus since wife likes thick & me thin.

  5. Jessie says:

    Worst bacon ever! I just bought a pound of bacon fat. Once this product was cooked it amounted to almost nothing in the pan. I would never buy this product.

    BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER!!! Obviously they have no food inspectors in the United States, nor standards for bacon. We bought 2 lbs of pure fat called “bacon” , and we ended up with 1/3 lb of edible product out of 2 lbs. Every store should refuse to sell that product. We will never never buy it again as it is garbage!!!

  7. Barry says:

    This bacon is either cut too thick or too thin, smoke favor is inconsistent, sometimes too fatty or too meaty. It is the best bacon on the market and my wife and I buy 15-20 lbs at a time and we travel additional mile to get to the only market that sells it. Please do not buy this product. More for us who have discovered its value.

    This is the best smoked bacon ever. I am an avid bacon user. Yes there is a little extra fat but it fries up beautifully. I buy it by the case. Hands down the best tasting and smoke. My family and my guests inquire about what brand and where do I get it?

    At one time the big buy bacon was decent in amount of meat on the bacon and flavor. However they have changed the flavor sometime ago. Today my husband opened a package of bacon that was darned near all fat-barely any meat to go with all the fat.

  11. Glen says:

    I LOVE BIG BUY BACON. No other bacon comes close to its flavor !!

  12. Rick says:

    Great taste like bacon was years ago! I’m a fan

  13. Alley says:

    It really is the best bacon by far…and the price reflects that there is a little more fat, but boy is that good also! Just pour the liquid fat in a can and forget it. My son buys it by the case to freeze when he gets home as he can’t get it where he lives….we’re trying to get his local market to carry it….

    Best bacon ever!

    How can I order the Big Buy Hardwood bacon . Our store stopped selling it

  16. Sandy Agee says:

    I have mixed feelings bout this bacon. It does have a good flavor, but the slices were soooooo thin. and the bacon just shriveled up like plastic warming. This is the kind of bacon my father says runs away from you. When I first started buying it, it was all good. Now that I am hooked they have changed the product on me. I have to cook a whole pack to feed 3 people.

    I am looking for the MAIN company of BIG BUY BACON. I live in California, I have had no issues with the quality of the product or the flavor. I have bought it many times and kept it frozen. Due to the low price I feel I am getting the better end of this deal. BUT !@!! The last time I bought one package, when I got to eating the last 3 strips of bacon, in ONE strip alone I found 2 small screws. YOU HEARD ME they looked like the type of screws that are in Eye wear glasses.. very tiny. :Lucky for me I did not bite down real hard when eating the strip or I would probably have swallowed them.. Crazy stuff. I have been searching online for the company that packages this brand and have had no luck, I kept the screws and will go back to the store so they can speak to whomever they buy it from. I hope to at least get compensated for the cost.

  18. Kimberly Stalder says:

    I have brought big buy bacon for 15 year and now I will not be purchasing this bacon any longer. I can not believe it has all been nothing but fat. Sorry to see such a good product go to an undesirable food.

    I love Big Buy bacon

    Big Buy Bacon. Lets get started. Bought 20 packages of this stuff couple weeks ago. Was on sale so thought, OK, lets try it. Big mistake!! first off, had a heck of a time even opening the package. Got it open to find the bacon slices were cut very unevenly. The ends were a good 3/8 inch thick. Not much meat, lots of fat, and yes, I love the fat too. However, this stuff was beyond what I would call bacon. I thought it disgraceful seeing the word “Bacon” on those packages. It was sliced in a way that made it look as though the machine, or person, slicing it was blind, had no regard for good slicing. It was packaged as if the “bacon” was simply tossed into the packaging as it was twisted around and the ends were folded under. A few slices did have a decent amount of meat, but, the rest, did not. to put it bluntly, Big Buy Bacon is a sham as to what bacon should be. I LOVE bacon, big time. However, even if it is the cheapest in the store, I refuse to EVER buy Big Buy Bacon ever again unless they get there heads out of where ever there at and do the bacon justice as it should be done. Not some haphazard attempt to sell some cheap crap. It “used” to be good bacon long time ago but now, no. Be warned for those wishing to try this bacon. Don’t!!
