Our long-time love story with bacon

Bacon's rich history is as fascinating as its taste is delectable. Its origins trace back to ancient civilizations, where salt curing and smoking were revered methods of meat preservation. The very term "bacon" is thought to have sprung from the Old High German word "bacho," referring to the back of a pig. Fast forward to modern times, and bacon has not only stood the test of time but has become an essential part of breakfast and beyond.

Our love story with bacon continues to evolve with unique offerings and long-lasting relationships with local farms to provide a breadth of options for customers.

If you’re looking for something beyond the traditional strip of bacon, try the Johnsonville Sausage Strip—a creative twist that brings the delectable flavor of breakfast sausage in a convenient strip form, minus the mess of traditional bacon.

For those seeking exceptional quality, our exclusive Private Selection Duroc bacon is a must-try! Crafted from the finest Duroc pork, known for its exceptional marbling and juiciness, this bacon variety promises a tender and flavorful experience like no other.

Or, support local and try artisanal options like Usinger’s and Nueske’s—bacon crafted in small batches using traditional methods.

Health-conscious options are available in our stores too, like our Simple Truth Uncured Smoked Bacon or Applegate’s No Sugar Bacon for those looking to savor the taste of bacon without the added sweetness.
