    Turkey Bacon Ingredients: Mechanically Separated Turkey, White Turkey, Dark Turkey, Water, Salt, Contains 2% Or Less Of Potassium Lactate, Natural Smoke Flavoring, Sodium Erythorbate, Sodium Nitrate.

    Pork Bacon Ingredients: Pork, Water, Salt, Turbinado Sugar, Seasoning (Cultured Celery Juice Powder, Sea Salt).

    I think i'll take the pork bacon, thanks.

    Uncured Turkey bacon: made by Applegate Farms

    Turkey, Water, Salt Sea, Celery Powder, Maple Sugar, Onion(s) Powder, Spice(s)

    Stop with the scare tactics people...Worse than Fox News

  • Look at my shirt. Even my son agrees real bacon is better! Heck, my wife brought turkey 'bacon' into the house and I damn near divorced her *kitten*. I rather her sleep around then bring me FALSE BACON!

    Yes, we had real bacon on our pizza here too!

    I love both equally. I cook with regular bacon, great to sautee veggies in rendered bacon fat. But Trader Joes Turkey bacon is by far the best the other brands get so cardboardy.

    100% real. Not even the low-sodium crap. I like my white meat authentic. :wink: :tongue:

    By the time they get done adding sodium nitrites and all the other poison to turkey bacon, the point is moot. Eat the real thing.

    Turkey Bacon... beacuse if I'm going to indulge & eat pork, I'm going for the whole shebang: taylor ham (aka pork roll).

    Turkey. CRISPY for starters. Yum for seconds. I used to hate eating bacon because of all the fat. How can you eat the fat (which has no taste) and be happy? Dunno. Not me. Turkey bacon IS real bacon to me.

    What part of the turkey is the bacon from? Real bacon microwaved is better then any kind of processed fake bacon. And by better I mean tastier AND healthier. Note, there is no bacon in a turkey...
  • We have eaten turkey bacon in this house for years, simply because it's healthier for my kids and we all like it, it tastes pretty darn good. I buy the Oscar Meyer brand from costco, comes in a 4 pack and its much cheaper than the real bacon, which is another reason I buy it.

    That being said, we do also eat actual pork bacon from time to time too, but that's more like a "treat." What's funny is my kids don't like it as much because of the fat, they say, ewwww its all fat, am I supposed to eat that? LOL
    What exactly is healthier about turkey bacon when compared to pork bacon?
