Yeah, I could not believe that Consumer Reports tests bacon as well as cars, washing machines and televisions.
That said, here is the bottom line result from their report on the heavenly food:
Kirkland Signature Regular tastes best. It’s sold as four 1-pound packages, so you may need to freeze some. ... Very good alternatives include Great Value Lower Sodium or, for thicker slices, Oscar Mayer Thick Cut. A higher price didn’t mean better bacon: The priciest product of all, Oscar Mayer Fully Cooked, rated lower than many others.I was disappointed that they did not test or recommend center cut bacon as it seems to be less fatty that other varieties. Anyone ever buy 4 pounds of Kirkland Signature Regular bacon at Costco? Is it really better than other brands?
