It’s time to talk about our favorite food again, bacon! I haven’t eaten bacon for almost a month and I’m starting to have strong cravings. It didn’t help matters much that I just found an infographic with seventeen facts about bacon, none of which I was aware of.
This infographic should be send to the butchers I frequent too, it has happened more then once that I have to explain them what kind of bacon I want. Now with the information of this infographic I can formulate it better to them.
I was not aware that the the kind of bacon’s where country related, sure I hear them mention Canadian bacon on TV but never really thought about it. Here in the Netherlands we have British bacon and a very thin sliced and small poor excuse version of American bacon which is called “ontbijtspek” which translated means, “breakfast bacon”.
When you order a BLT sandwich you have no idea which kind of bacon you are going to get nor if it is well baked. Last time in Amsterdam I went to a cafe for lunch an ordered their BLT sandwich and got lightly baked, mostly “raw” thick cut British bacon. Needless to say I did not eat it, that was 7 euro I’m never seeing again.
My favorite bacon is a crispy Oscar Mayer which sadly enough is not sold in the Netherlands. Luckily my regular lunch spot has a terrific BLT sandwich that keeps me happy. All BLT sandwiches I eat I compare to theirs.
Fact number five is also very interesting, 23% of men rank bacon as their favorite fragrance. Calvin Klein where is your bacon perfume for women?
They say love goes through a men stomach, I would say a BLT sandwich does. So ladies next time you have a guy over for dinner just make sure bacon is included. Although this counts for guys too having a lady over, I wouldn’t say no to bacon.
