I love how many names you have for 'UK bacon' Over here we just call it Bacon, if you ask for bacon that's what you'll get, occasionally it's called 'Back Bacon'.

There is nothing and I mean nothing in the world better than taking a fresh slice of ham or bacon right out of the smoker.

on the turkey bacon my guess is b is more expensive one. reason im army cook and we something cook turkey bacon for breast-feast for non pork eater slash healthily options and a is the one we normal would used so yeah the army cheap we not going to get the good stuff so yeah.

I'll cut him some slack: he was up front about NOT being a turkey-bacon expert. His palate is tuned to the real deal so he was out of his element. Kudos for the great attitude about whiffing. In fairness, I learned a lot from him about real bacon and Canadian bacon (great pointers). Super glad he talked about "Euro" bacons. Sadly, I will have to start a quest in my area to find someone who carries Euro bacon.

plz don't cook English bacon like that

I was surprised when he guessed A as the more expensive turkey bacon, because he had spent the last couple of minutes talking about how A was clearly more processed and had cheap preservatives and chemicals in it, and how B looked better, tasted better, had better texture, tasted like it was actually properly smoked, etc.

+dishwashersoap is there nothing important about your health and what enters your body? If fruits, vegetables, dairy, grains, fish, vitamins and minerals etc...are important and benefitual for you as a human being to have, need, and sustain your self live and thrive..... Then why is putting in your body bacteria, viruses, parasites, hormones, blood, diseases, animal vaccines etc... Not be considered harmful to your well-being? By your terminology we can also say its ok to do drugs, have unprotected sex, and drink alcohol.... I understand i useto eat pork too and it taste good but not everything that taste good is good for you and some times what taste bad is actually good for you... I just made a conscience dicision to stop eating pork..... You can too..... And i cant spoon feed you because you have to take out some of your own time you spend on youtube and use it to do some research behind why pork is bad for you scientifically..... Plus if your christian, jewish, muslim, or hindu then you should know the bible and other scriptures says you must not partake in the eating of the swine.. But maybe your atheist and just dont care for that just look at what science has to say about this subject matter..... Peace ✌
there is nothing wrong with eating pork.
21$ A POUND!?!?!?!?!?! Jesus Christ i should go into business. I smoke my own dry cure bacon at home. A pork belly piece is about 15$ and you get the equivalent of 4lbs of bacon.

Bacon smells almost exactly how my hand smelt when I severely burnt it as a child. Pork really is similar to human. And that makes it impossible to eat. That and the fact that I get two pounds of liquid fat per batch is a no go.

Damn. I've seen this video on my feed or like at least a week or two now, and haven't clicked it on it because I assumed it was garbage due to the STUPID, CLICKBAITY TITLE. Then today, it autoplays today after other video, and what do I find? An interesting and informative video that goes way beyond what you'd expect from the title - this ain't some dumb Buzzfeedy video with a guy eating exorbitantly expensive stuff... it's actually INFORMATION that could be useful in your day-to-day life. So that's awesome. Too bad I missed it for weeks and only happened upon it by chance (i.e. USvid WANTED me to see it). I feel like there has to be a better way to title / brand these videos to distinguish them from the rest of the "cheap vs expensive" trash out there on USvid. Anyway, great video!

Just to brag a bit, I guessed that turkey bacon B was the expensive type from 5:45 . Skipped right to the price reveal. Just look at the color differences. Turkey A has an artificial bologna color and texture to it. B at least looks like real meat.

I've never seen anyone get it wrong. What's interesting is based on his description, I thought he was going to pick the opposite way. I think he identified the reasons they were cheaper and more expensive, but then just guessed the wrong way.

Canadian Bacon B looks like the basic vacuum sealed packaged Canadian bacon that I get at stater bros for $4 in the same aisle as the regular bacon. Not gonna lie though that’s still what I use to make eggs Benedict.
