Disclamer: Just to be clear, I didnt buy this through Amazon! You can get this item through the CMMG or Zombie Armory websites for a much better price. Also I have not been paid by anyone or any of the companies listed here for this review. I spent the money for two cans and this is my opinion. No BS! Also, if you get hosed with a knockoff here on Amazon, thats between you and the company you bought it from.
Now for the Bacon, Top to bottom!
The can looked professional and long lasting. After all it's supposedly good for 10+ years. And the label is sure to bring a smile to any man. It has an outline of an M4 rifle and funny quotes from bacon lovers on the front and 2 step, picture instructions on the back. Almost a shame to empty and trash it. Inside the can the bacon is layed flat on wax paper and then layered several times in that fashion. It looks as though the stacked layers are then folded in half once and then rolled into a perfect can shape and stuffed in. I found that you have to remove both the top and bottom of the can so you can push it out.
Now for the bacon quality. Everyone likes their bacon cooked a little different, so description is key here. It is a thin sliced, smoke flavored, fully cooked bacon. I found it to be very savory and the smoke flavor is a medium. Not too sweet, not too salty. Just delicious! As for texture, its not crumbly over-cooked bacon, nor is it under cooked rubber bacon... It's firm but tender bacon, cooked to absolute perfection (IMO). In other words it doesnt fall appart out of the can and when you take a bite its not necissary to chew for 2 minuts. I did NOT find there to be any chemical or metalic taste with this product, but i used mine within 6 months of delivery. I have not tested the long term taste of this product. But no worries, its bacon so it will be eaten before then. Over all Id give it a 6 out of 10 on bacon taste in general. As for pre-cooked bacon Id have to give it a 10 out of 10! It is the best pre-cooked bacon Iv had by a wide margin. And yes it is edible right out of the can, but it is a bit greasy. I found it best when unpacked and nuked for under a minute with a few paper towels at the bottom. In other words, Its a good gift for anyone who loves bacon and good enough to try once if your on the fence. Get it!
Cost is a bit much, but trust me there is a LOT of bacon stuffed in one can. I would say its more than enough for a family breakfast. I dont recommend a single person eat it all in one go. I am not a health freak by any means nor am I careless, but I did feel bad about eating it all in one sitting. It was so good.... But there is way more bacon then you would think in one can.
I hope this helps with some of the uncertanty with this product, and may your bacon be delicious and plentiful for the rest of your days.
