I love bacon, but what I read is more than a little nuts.

"Starting today, bacon-lovers can now snack on bacon throughout the day in an easy, on-the-go bacon jerky pouch," the company said in a statement. Oscar MayerBacon Jerky is available in bourbon barbecue and teriyaki ginger flavors.That's the nuts part. Not only is this fancy new product just bacon, but it will likely carry a hefty price tag, too, for anyone deciding to buy it. From a business standpoint, it's bigger profits for something they already sell.
The snack, made of 100% real bacon, has 11 grams of protein per serving, according to the statement.
And what's with the flavors? Bourbon barbeque and teriyaki? How about just bacon-flavored? After all, we love bacon because it tastes like bacon, right? We add it to other foods to improve their flavor with bacon.
Bacon needs no improvement (well, lower calories and a lot less saturated fat would be nice, but I'm not that picky). After all, it's bacon!
We don't need it flavored, jerkied, or provided in a fancy package. We like it just as it is.
All that's needed is bacon and a pan to cook it in. Yum.
