Turkey Bacon

There really is no rhyme or reason to my blog so today's topic is "Turkey Bacon". Not the most exciting thing to write about, but something I decided to express my opinion on.

 Do you eat turkey bacon? Have you ever tried it? Quite a few years ago I decided to try to eat healthier (ha!) and started eating turkey bacon instead of regular bacon. My grandson (the EXTREMELY picky eater) also developed a taste for it. Our preferred brand is Oscar Mayer. Several years ago we sent hubby to the grocery store to get some things...........and he came home with Jenny O.....neither one of us liked it. I don't like the flavor, the texture, or how it cooks up. YUK! I have tried some of the store brands and even prefer those to Jenny O. I'd really like to know if you have any thoughts about turkey bacon.

The grocery store I usually shop at does not carry Oscar Mayer; I have even put comments in the suggestion box.....but I guess the Jenny O is what some people prefer.  I was out of bacon and as I was doing my weekly shopping I ended up with the Jenny O brand. Nope, I still don't care for it!!! (That's what brought upon this post.) Yes, I did end up at another grocery store to get our preferred brand. I am not a brand snob, but there are a few name brands that I do buy because after trying other brands I really only like the name brand.


  1. No turkey bacon for us. Hubby wants the real stuff!
    Finally cooling off.

  2. I've never tried any brand of turkey bacon.

  3. I don't eat baco that often, so when I do, I eat the real stuff.

  4. Hi Linda....I thought I would stop by your blog since you visited mine. Thank you for you compliments.

    The first post I find on your blog is about a topic near and dear to my heart...BACON. I love bacon. Real bacon, turkey bacon, doesn't matter. I try to restrain and not have it too's a treat. As much as I adore chocolate, bacon beats it and all other foods.

    I do have a special recipe for my bacon and I will post in in a future might give it a try with your turkey bacon and see if you like the other brand any better.

    By the way, I haven't met a bacon I don't like! I even eat the Aldi brand.

  5. Lisa, have you tried chocolate covered bacon? YUM!
