As many bacon lovers already know, the cost of bacon at your local store is rising. Slash Food was bold enough to ask the question, “What’s Up with the High Price of Bacon?” The article sums up the reasons why we have a crisis on our hands.

The National Review even called it, “Obama’s Next Crisis: How Will the White House Handle Increasing Bacon Prices“. This got a lot of bacon lovers worried since we saw how long the healthcare debate took. We need relief today not months from now.

Bloomberg’s latest report, “Bacon Surge May Last Past August as Supply Tightens” gives us very little hope that the prices will come down during prime BLT season.

Wall Street Journal says “Pork Bellies Rise, Bacon Lovers Pay“.

This is true, no matter how high the cost of bacon gets, a bacon lover will never pass on making a BLT. Its prime home gown tomato session and we can’t let them go to waste.

These are hard times for bacon lovers everywhere. If you didn’t stock up on bacon and put it in your freezer I feel for you. If you do need to buy some bacon don’t reach for the cheaper stuff. Even with bacon prices high, that’s not excuse to eat subpar bacon.

Let us know what the bacon prices are in your area in the comments.

Stay strong and enjoy bacon!

    Amen brother. No subpar bacon here. My only stash left though is Hickory Smoked Irish Bacon. I will go out of my way for killer bacon though. I drove all the way to a smokehouse in New Hampshire to buy this applewood smoked bacon that is TO DIE FOR!( I found out they were hiring recently…I almost moved to New Hampshire!) I have since started having them ship it too me…but it’s been a while. The stores are way depleted! I learned a long time ago….no cheap bacon, even when making rumaki! I’d rather go without than do the subpar. And as you said, those big tomatoes are just plump & ripe for the pickin’! BLT heaven! Rock on! Have a blast at the Bacon Bash!
