This is wrong on so many levels.

"Vilhelm Lillefläsk’s Squeez Bacon® is fully cooked 100% bacon. Due to the patented electro-mechanical process by which Squeez Bacon® is rendered, it requires no preservatives or other additives. Each serving is as healthy as real bacon, and equivalent to 4 premium slices of bacon! You can put it on sandwiches, pizza, pastas, bacon, soups, pies, eat it hot or cold (warm Squeez Bacon® on toasted rye is to die for), substitute it for bacon in your recipes, or even eat it right out of the tube like we do! If it’s edible, it’s better with Squeez Bacon®."


  1. I think ye post title sums it up very accurately!

  2. Is it sad I'd actually try this?

  3. Well, Mer, trying new things shouldn't be sad. Bacon isn't sad. Electro-mechanically processed bacon in a squeeze bottle...seems gross to me.

    On the other hand, I like escargot, pate, oysters and probably a lot of other things that someone with different tastes would see as gross. And your comment has made me think of my own hypocrisy. If I was in an artsy-fartsy restaurant and offered some kind of whipped bacon on a cracker as an amuse bouche, damn straight I would eat it. Probably like it too.

    We are getting to a place where can't be bothered to fry a few pieces of bacon ourselves. We are so lazy that we would rather reach for a ketchup bottle filled with electro-mechanically processed bacon to smear on a sandwich. The fry time is just too long. There is also a pan to clean. That's a full 15 minute commitment. That mindset is sad.

    The hardest part about making your own bacon, which I promise will come out very yummy, is finding a good pork belly. The rest of the process is very easy and in the end, rewarding. Not as fast as popping the top tho....

  4. I'd just pretty much try it for the sake of trying it.

    I've been toying with the idea of making my own bacon for a while now, I just have to make the committment and do it... I'm fairly sure I can find good pork belly here in Minnesota, with all the pig farms.

    Hooray for Bacon!!!!
