Costco - Thats a lot of bacon!

While walking through Costco at lunch the other day, my friend Dennis and I came upon a cooler filled with hundreds of pounds of bacon. Literally this thing was probably 8 feet long and a couple of feet deep, completely filled with these double packs of bacon. He stopped me from climbing in and rolling around in it, which is probably a good thing as I want to be able to go back and get some of this to review. Its four pounds for just under $11 so its a very affordable bacon, but if it is only as good as the price, I have to go through four pounds of the stuff. Oh the sacrifice... OK I'll do it.

So, I'm dying to know if you got the Costco bacon and how was it? I'm sure it didn't compare to the gourmet bacon you've been trying, but was it worthy of cooking with and mixing with other stuff (say chocolate)?
bacon love-

It is a very good standard bacon. It has a nice thick cut. Not sure if the maple flavor would be distracting from mixing with chocolate or not, I would think the two sweet flavors would blend well. Let us know how your chocolate bacon turns out, we have a soft spot for bacon and chocolate here at LoB. :)

We buy this bacon. We buy it, fry it, eat it, poop it out, and buy some more. It's good bacon. Mmmm...bacon. The maple flavor is insignificant. We've had others with the flavor and they tasted fake and icky. This bacon, however, is much milder. It fries up beautifully.

Thanks for posting this. I need a 100lbs of bacon for an event at Burning Man and was looking up the cost of bacon at Costco but could not find bulk bacon on the website.

I've had their 4lb block of swine. It's a decent cut and thickness. Not outstanding but certainly a respectable product.
