    you cooked them in the same pan and therefor in your own words you imparted the flavor of bacon B onto bacon A and ruined your own test.

    Lmao I knew just from seeing turkey bacon A that it was the cheaper one. I grew up eating it for religious purposes and could tell that it was from a mile away.😂

      +Mr Fragezeichen Well yes you could, also raw chicken. You might get salmonella from the chicken, but that doesn't mean you can't eat it.
      The reason we cook meat is to kill bacteria and parasites and such.

    I'm Canadian and Peameal bacon is true Canadian bacon, back bacon made from lean pork loin, dunked in brine, and can be covered with corn meal. That round stuff looks like sandwich meat, might as well fry up ham slices.

  • XxNocturnalKnightxX
    XxNocturnalKnightxX 20 hours ago

    I don't think that was right... I have packaged Canadian Bacon, that looks but tastes better than american bacon. The Canadian Bacon in all these american shows is actually Back Bacon. So if your in Canada and you order Canadian bacon you're not wrong it looks like american bacon. Or in our case we just call it bacon, and the other is obviously ordered as Back Bacon.
    Side note our bacon is marinated with maple syrup so it tastes so much better that way, and less salty.

    I'll cut him some slack: he was up front about NOT being a turkey-bacon expert. His palate is tuned to the real deal so he was out of his element. Kudos for the great attitude about whiffing.
    In fairness, I learned a lot from him about real bacon and Canadian bacon (great pointers).
    Super glad he talked about "Euro" bacons. Sadly, I will have to start a quest in my area to find someone who carries Euro bacon.

    I was surprised when he guessed A as the more expensive turkey bacon, because he had spent the last couple of minutes talking about how A was clearly more processed and had cheap preservatives and chemicals in it, and how B looked better, tasted better, had better texture, tasted like it was actually properly smoked, etc.

      +dishwashersoap is there nothing important about your health and what enters your body?
      If fruits, vegetables, dairy, grains, fish, vitamins and minerals etc...are important and benefitual for you as a human being to have, need, and sustain your self live and thrive.....
      Then why is putting in your body bacteria, viruses, parasites, hormones, blood, diseases, animal vaccines etc... Not be considered harmful to your well-being?
      By your terminology we can also say its ok to do drugs, have unprotected sex, and drink alcohol....
      I understand i useto eat pork too and it taste good
      but not everything that taste good is good for you and some times what taste bad is actually good for you...
      I just made a conscience dicision to stop eating pork.....
      You can too..... And i cant spoon feed you because you have to take out some of your own time you spend on youtube and use it to do some research behind why pork is bad for you scientifically.....
      Plus if your christian, jewish, muslim, or hindu then you should know the bible and other scriptures says you must not partake in the eating of the swine..
      But maybe your atheist and just dont care for that just look at what science has to say about this subject matter..... Peace ✌

    Damn. I've seen this video on my feed or like at least a week or two now, and haven't clicked it on it because I assumed it was garbage due to the STUPID, CLICKBAITY TITLE. Then today, it autoplays today after other video, and what do I find? An interesting and informative video that goes way beyond what you'd expect from the title - this ain't some dumb Buzzfeedy video with a guy eating exorbitantly expensive stuff... it's actually INFORMATION that could be useful in your day-to-day life. So that's awesome.
    Too bad I missed it for weeks and only happened upon it by chance (i.e. USclip WANTED me to see it). I feel like there has to be a better way to title / brand these videos to distinguish them from the rest of the "cheap vs expensive" trash out there on USclip. Anyway, great video!

    Just to brag a bit, I guessed that turkey bacon B was the expensive type from 5:45 . Skipped right to the price reveal.
    Just look at the color differences. Turkey A has an artificial bologna color and texture to it. B at least looks like real meat.
