Bacon has evolved since I was a kid. I remember looking forward to Saturday morning cartoons and not having to rush through breakfast. And oh yes the bacon. As an adult either my taste buds have changed drastically or bacon isn't the same. I'm going to blame the bacon. When I had Trader Joe's Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon, I was taken back to my childhood. For $4.49 it was a fair price for what you are getting.
The pros: The taste. Trader Joe's Uncured Apple Smoked Bacon is the most bacon-y bacon I've had since I was a kid. I've been getting by on Costco bacon. This blows that out of the water. This is now the only bacon I'll buy. Thick cut.
The cons: 12 ounce package. This is "snack" sized in my household. My household is 2 people so if you are cooking for more than that please keep this in mind.
The verdict: This is a must buy in my household.

This is what you get in a 12 ounce package (plus one piece. The things I do for this blog)
This is one of those products in the refrigerated case that they frequently run out of. With good reason. It's delicious. Try it. If there are better bacons out there I haven't had them yet.
