Yum,yum!! Never tried bacon like this before and was looking forward to it.We loved the peppery edge to the bacon that was completely complimented by the sweetness...delicious! You may want to line your baking sheet as they stick a little,but not a major problem at all. Thanks Loof.....Made for PhotoTag.

This bacon was terrific. It was savory with just a touch of sweetness. I made a wonderful BLT sandwich for my lunchbox.

This is good bacon! Sweet, salty, and just the right amount of bite from the pepper. Made for our 'breakfast for dinner' night with waffles and eggs, was the perfect addition. Made for Football Pool 2012-13 Win.
