If you were to take a moment and rank all the blank-of-the-month clubs in the world in order, we’re pretty sure we can guess the results.
Fruit-of-the-month offerings will always fall to the bottom alongside deliveries from the Orthopedic Shoe of the Month Club.
Bacon, on the other hand, will always rise to the top somewhere near Underwear of the Month and Wine of the Week.
It’s a scientific fact.
Say hello to Tender Belly, a heavenly brand of bacon from a family that treats its heritage pigs to a stress-free life with plenty of space to run around while enjoying a 100% vegetarian diet in between romps.
We were sent some of the bacon to sample and let’s just say if we’re ever caught uttering the words Oscar or Mayer again in the same sentence you have permission to slap us. With a slab of Tender Belly.
The bacon is so thick and wonderfully marbled (not to mention uncured, nitrate- and nitrite-free), two slices are equivalent to five or six of the average brands. In all our testing, we discovered that the way to get this extra-thick bacon the crispiest possible is by baking it, but griddle frying comes a close second.
Best of all, the Tender Belly Bacon Every Month Club delivers four pounds of breakfast crack to your home every month.
Because everyone should get porked by his mailman at least once.
