Advantages: it is food
Disadvantages: it is not nice food
I may be a little biased in this review in the fact that I find smoked bacon far superior and tasty than its plain unsmoked cousin, however I can at a push eat unsmoked.
I find unsmoked goes better if you are having it with something with a fruity taste to it, for example it is nice with rings of pineaple on toast, or in the classic ham and pineapple pizza. Alright I know some people will argue that if it is HAM and pineapple you should use HAM rather than BACON. So we will call it a bacon and pineapple pizza.
Another place I like the bacon/ham and pineapple combination is on a baked potato.
So money being tight at the moment I though I would give this
Tesco Value Unsmoked Back Bacon a try.
No No No! Never agian.
I really disliked this, the taste was bland and the meat seemed much tougher than bacon normally does. There was a pretty high fat content and the size of the meat halved when applied to any heat, grilled or fried.
I didn't try, but it would probably be allright smothered in Brown Sauce, but I wasn't going to risk wasting any brown sauce.
I am a fan of value food, but this bacon certainly was not good value at any cost.
Summary: avoid this and buy some fruit
