Top 10 Best Bacon Brands

Top 10 Best Bacon Brands

What is the best bacon you can buy at a grocery store? Well, let the NerdBerry break it all down for you!




Hey all you bacon lovers. I know, I know, this is a video game website and we’re talking about bacon. We may love video games at an unhealthy level, but we love bacon too! Everyone does. So, in the spirit of bacon, I’ve spent the last 3 months clogging up my arteries so I can save you $5 of the wrong pack of bacon and help you spend that $5 the right way with a quality flavorful cut that’s guaranteed to help you start your day right, or maybe help you make the tastiest BLT you’ve ever had.

Everyone has a bacon preference. Everyone has a bacon brand they like. But not everybody takes it as seriously as I do. Y’all may not know it, but I have been in the restaurant industry for 10 years now and I’ve held numerous job titles including host, server, busser, dishwasher, utility, bartender, prep cook, line cook, head chef, assistant manager, FOH supervisor, and assistant director. So I pride myself on my knowledge of quality food over poor food. You can’t know what good food is unless you eat it. You may like that bacon you eat religiously, but maybe you haven’t really wandered too far beyond the pasture to check the pork on the other side of the hill. After all, the grass is always greener over there isn’t it?

So let me take the guess-work out for you. Or you can feel free to go find out for yourself what YOUR favorite is and make your list! This is not definitive of all bacon ever made in America. Here in North Carolina though, pork is king and bacon reigns supreme. So there may be a brand or two that you’ve never heard of. But a lot of these places will ship bacon. I came into this project with a heavy bias towards one brand. Just like most out there I had my favorite and I was stuck in my ways. But now I have seen the light and I’ve met many a good tasting pig. So, without keeping you waiting any longer, click NEXT at the bottom to scroll through some of the best grocery store bacon you can get your hands on! Being number 10 is definitely NOT a bad thing! Making the list is great in and of itself.

Nerdberry here. It’s about time I updated this badboy (been a loooong time). I’m currently loving time on my Xbox 360, as I destroy aliens left and right through the Gears of War games (man these games are good).

But that doesn’t mean I’ve lost my love for retro-gaming! My wife and I just bought a house (December, 2015) and we have a baby due ANY DAY NOW (my mini-nerdette-berry is 1 day late as of December 10th), so I haven’t fully unpacked the hundreds of cartridges that I own.
