Do Stranger staffers get kickbacks every time they post about bacon? Seriously. You are all bacon obsessives.

It looks so tasty!

This is the canned equivalent of a Chelsea Alvarez-Bell post.

That just sounds nasty. I like bacon, but that's just wrong.

But is it crispy? For that would make it genius. Instead of opening up a can of whoop ass, I now shall open up a can of bacon.

Finally, a canned food product worthy of my disaster-preparedness kit!

Needs to be combined with T-Shirt launcher.

The bacon thing is out of control.

The only good bacon is smokehouse maple sugar-cured bacon cooked in a cast iron frying pan on a wood stove, served up fresh with eggs and/or pancakes.

And hot coffee you brewed yourself.

Perfect thing for the Hobo on the go.

Ahhhh..... one step closer to the holy grail: Aerosol Bacon!

Given the bulk and presumed weight of the can (in addition to having to pack it out with you - you DO pack out your trash, right?) the pre-cooked bacon in plastic bags you currently find in the grocery stores seems a much better choice for backpacking, IMO.

Although I have t admit, 40 - 50 slices per can does make for a pretty tempting bacon-to-excess-weight ratio. OTOH, a 10 year shelf-life sounds a little scary.

Yeah, definitely add to the emergency survival rations, but maybe not so much for the backpacking larder.

And does the P-38 come included?

But is the can narrow enough to fit in the cupholder of your car?

Beat me to it Kelly O.

Um, is it just me or is the font style of the brand reminiscent of Hebrew? Which would be extra fucked up.

I've got a case of this stuff on order. I'll let you know how it is.

@18 Don't be so culturally insensitive. Yoder is clearly an Amish name.

Posted by You_Gotta_Be_Kidding_Me | June 3, 2008 3:46 PM

@14: not only do i NOT pack it out, i make fires in lake basins, poop on rocks in streams, and let my dog harass wildlife. worst of all, i only bring 7 of the 10 essentials.

Hey, who is the Stranger staffer that's always tasting food for us to tell us if it is good or not? The one who tried the Indiana Jones Snickers bar? Can she try this for us? Unless she is a vegetarian or Jewish, in which case can we have a substitute Stranger taste tester?

Unfortunately for those of us in the submarine force, this is old news. Really old. Like on my first deployment as we began running critically low on chow and scoured the boat for anything that may have been stowed in some recess in a sealed can, we came across a rusted #10 can (old-school Folger's can) of the stuff dated 1972. It looked horrible, smelled worse, but for someone who hadn't been anywhere near bacon in two months it tasted divine.

Other than that, when real bacon is available avoid the canned shit.

Posted by LT L | June 3, 2008 4:55 PM

It is just remotely possible that a fresh new can of Yoder's is a little better than nasty-ass 36-year-old Navy bacon.
