We finally opened up a can of this bacon today (buy the case, expensive, but worth it) and were very pleased. It is very thin sliced, which is OK even though we prefer thick, and the flavor is what you expect. Pre-cooked, it comes neatly rolled in layers of thin paper, and stuffed in the can. I have seen coffee shops serve bacon like this, but theirs come in big boxes. I opened up both ends of the can so I could just push the product through to get it out. (It's really packed in there!) After frying eggs I just quick-seared the bacon in the pan because we wanted a bit of crispness to it, but it is totally ready to eat right out of the can. Hint: if buying for emergency storage, write your own use by date on the lid.
Great for food storage!

I purchased this for my food (hurricane/disaster) storage. I know the information states good for 10 years, but be aware that there is no date on the actual can. When I contacted Lehman's they said there was a code in the mix of numbers, but it is the date prepared and that it is good for at least five years. I love Lehman's foods, but would like to have a use by date for food items I buy. Bacon is great, but one star off for my use by date on the product.
Lehman's says: The dates on the cans can be a bit difficult to decipher! The USDA only requires expiration dates on products in which a 5 year shelf life cannot be proven. Since the shelf life of the bacon is much longer than that, there is no expiration date listed. There is however a "date of production" listed. Here is an example on how to decipher the code: If the code on the can reads A9130, the "A" is for the product code (bacon), the 9 is for 2019, and the 130 is the 130th day of the year, or May 10th, 2019.

The canned bacon is delicious. It can be eaten right out of the can or the unopened can may be stored in the pantry. I plan to order more and have it available when we are in the mood for bacon.
Perfect way to buy bacon

This can is chock full of bacon. Toss the bacon in the oven or briefly in the skillet to crisp up or use right away in recipes without the messy task of cooking raw bacon. Best part is it is delicious!

This is the second time I have purchased the canned bacon. It is amazing how much is in one can. Fed my son and I two meals, plus on our elk hunting trip. Very tasty and easy to prepare. Everyone should have a few cans on hand in case of emergencies.

Best bacon I've had. After opening the can was surprised at how many pieces could fit in such a small space. I separated the slices and put in smaller packs and into the freezer. I am single and knew I could not consume all pieces. Will buy again. It is lower in sodium than packaged bacon.

I like others was quite skeptical of such a small can having that many servings. We were stunned at how good it is. As I thought about how light cooked bacon is I started to understand. I will use this for a large occasion or group breakfast in the future. That way you do not fill your house with the smell of bacon for days.

We bought a can to try. I was skeptical. WE LOVED IT! Just heat it through,and tastes freshly prepared. Cripy and delicious! Will definitely purchase more.I couldn't believe how much product was in that little can.
