one correction, Speck is not northern italian, but more of a central/southern Austrian and also Czech cured Bacon, the only part of Italy you find this in is in the italian Province of southern Tyrol which used to be part of Austria.

I'm glad they included turkey bacon, being Muslim, I can't eat pork, and I never see any reviews on things that I like 😋🤗

Little Bit annoyed that he was forced to compare english Bacon vs German Bacon... Like there are good and bad Versions of them aswell...

Canadian bacon is so insulting to Canadians just because bacon in Canada is basically American bacon. Canadian bacon is just another thing made by Americans that is just a false stereotype about Canada

You overcooked the English bacon... it’s better when the fat is soft but the edges are slightly crispy, then you cook it without getting rid of excess fat so it’s not dry. Personally I think you are a disgrace to all the English bacon eaters out there.... 😂😂😂 plus this is just my view no hate.... and I’m hungry now

Right? The lean part should be more like a meaty ham, the fat in between should still have a little chew and the outer edge crispy

Turkey is not bacon. The only real bacon is Danish bacon, it's very much like the american bacon, but it's better.

What the hell is up with that American bacon ? Is that what you guys eat over “across the pond” . English bacon is a more substantial meat , and is so much nicer (in my opinion)

Although I respect his knowledge with real bacon, I was surprised he guessed the turkey “bacon” wrong. I immediately knew that B was more expensive. B looks like actual meat whereas A looks like Play-Doh.

Lean meats are of lower quality, taste worse, and have less nutritional value. The more fat the better. Why do you think Wagyu is so expensive and tastes so good? Why do you think the more well-done a steak is, the less flavor/tenderness it has(more cooking = more fat loss). I don't like my bacon crunchy. I don't like my ribeye steak well done.

They never seem to go by taste for which one is better... just how it looks and how it's made etc.
