I don't really eat a lot of meat and bacon isn't something i'm fond of, but as other members of the household do like it we usually have a regular stock of high quality bacon either in the fridge or in the freezer. The other day I knew my boyfriend would be coming around for his dinner after work and I wanted to cook him a nice meal, as I love spoiling him. Unfortuntately though about 20 minutes before I was about to start cooking the meal I realised I hadn't got the bacon out of the freezer to defrost and so my mum popped down to the Tesco Extra down the road for me to pick some up. She came back with this and although it looked quite cheap and nasty I ... Read the complete review

Never one to turn my nose up at a bargain, so when I saw this Value bacon for £1.23, I snapped it up. In the past I've usually gone for the own brand, unsmoked, back bacon, but a pack of the same size (250g) usually costs about £2, so the Value version was significantly cheaper. The first noticeable difference in the Value pack was the packaging- while most packets of bacon come in small plastic trays, with peel off lids, this was vacuum packed in thin plastic. This made it a bit difficult to get into, and I had to rip open the whole packet to get at the bacon. Still, at that price, I was happy to put up with a little inconvenience. The bacon ...

Bacon is a treat in my house. I buy it for Sunday mornings and I use the remainder in pasta dishes during the week. I bought this value product on Friday for £1.35 in preparation for Sunday breakfast. ***********Packaging *********** As you would expect the packaging is very basic, it's almost air packed into the plastic. However I never let the packaging of value products put me off buying - it's all in the taste. *********** The product ************ When I opened this product I was quite disappointed. The bacon was thin, there was a lot of fat on, each rasher seemed to be a different shape and it fell apart in my ... Read the complete review

My mum brought a pack of this Value bacon last week to try it, she's a bit snidy there buying such cheapo looking bacon because she doesn't eat it herself! lol It's not that bad even though it looks disgusting in the cheap plain plastic pack, I've had a couple of sandwiches out of it and my dad had the last 4 rashers with his dinner last night. We both agree that it's deffo not as nice as the branded bacon we usually get but it's as good as the bacon from our local butchers in taste, it just doesn't look as nice. When I first took it out of the packet I noticed how uneven the rashers are cut, a couple of them were very thin and one rasher was so ... Read the complete review

I have to admit I am cheap, if I can find a cheaper way of doing something I generally will, most recently this has involved swapping some of my weekly shopping items for tesco value products, its worked well with Chopped Tomatoes being great, Tortilla Chips being pretty damned good and the choc ices and milk lollies having a real taste that i've enjoyed as much as their more illustrious named competitors, so I tried this Bacon and realised sometimes its worth paying more for a bit of taste and quality. Tesco Value Unsmoked Bacon is £1.25 for a 250g pack which consists of around 8 rashers, the pack is a piece of plastic with the generic Tesco Value symbol on ... Read the complete review
