At last, bacon in a can.   

Canned_bacon_2 Canned_bacon_3 Canned_bacon_4 Canned_bacon_5

Each can is 9 ounces of fully cooked and drained bacon. Between 2-3/4 and 3-1/4 pounds of raw bacon go into each can. Each can is the highest quality fresh #1 bacon slices. Cured to our specifications, cooked and then hand wrapped, rolled and packed in the U.S. We cook this bacon down for you prior to canning, so you won’t pay for all of the natural shrinkage that occurs whenever you cook bacon. Then we carefully drain all of the fat and liquid off and can it fresh so it will taste as good out of the can as it would right out of the refrigerator.

If the packaging and description doesn’t quite convince you, perhaps you’ll be swayed by the product’s near-indestructibility.

With a shelf life in excess of 10 years, this bacon makes a perfect addition to your food storage program and it is great for every day use.

Oh god, it looks green. Eew. And who has a 10-year "food storage program"?

Judging by the packaging motif, I’m guessing it’s aimed at wilderness types, survivalists, oil riggers, pirates, or people who want to eat green bacon while waiting for the Rapture.

How on Earth do you roll fully-cooked bacon? Isn't it supposed to be *crispy* when cooked? IE, brittle?

I suppose there are some people out there who like under-cooked bacon, but are there enough to justify a product like this?

Aha. The item above is based on an earlier, no less impressive, product from Hungary:

Mmmmm, bacon.

But wait... 12 cans for $109.95!? Blimey.

Anna

So it's only the price that puts you off? :)

Good God, you've just restored my my faith in humanity. A bacon air freshener? Ain't capitalism grand?

And I thought those cans of baked beans with the little sausages in them were disgusting enough...!

"And who has a 10-year "food storage program"?" Economic realists.
