Do you enjoy bacon all day any day? If so, I have a review for you! Today I’m reviewing the Costco Kirkland Signature Hormel Fully Cooked Bacon!

This bacon is pretty tasty! Not as good as bacon straight out of the fry pan but for a super convenient bacon it’s pretty enjoyable. There’s different textures of bacon in the pack and some pieces of bacon have both textures. When I talk about the texture of the bacon, I’m talking about the difference between the rubbery less cooked bacon and the super crispy more well-done bacon. I only like crispy bacon and my husband likes his less done/more soft and rubbery so I give him the soft pieces and keep the crispy for myself. This bacon can be heated up or eaten right out of the package without doing anything to it. It’s not artificial tasting at all and tastes just like cold, cooked bacon that’s been saved. I probably wouldn’t use it for a big breakfast I was making on the weekend because I think that fresh bacon is best for a delicious big breakfast!

I paid $16.99 Canadian (not on sale) for the 500 gram package of Costco Kirkland Signature Hormel Fully Cooked Bacon. Not exactly cheap but also not that expensive considering how convenient this is. You’re definitely paying for the packaging and convenience.

The reason why I bought this bacon is for convenience! It’s perfect in sandwiches, crumbled over salads or in eggs. Great on burgers and just fine as a snack alone! The best before date on the package is about four months from the date we purchased the bacon. Which is a really LONG time! The packaging is resealable which is very convenient because you can just take some bacon out as you need it.

Two slices is 80 calories, six grams of fat, 350 mg of sodium, six grams of protein, zero grams of fibre, sugar and carbohydrates. The ingredients list is basically pork, salt and preservatives. There’s also sugar on the ingredients list but it says there’s zero grams of sugar on the ingredients label so that’s slightly interesting!

I would definitely buy this bacon again for the convenience factor! It was quite tasty and there are many ways I could use it. It’s perfect for people on keto as well!

  1. Maybe they’ve changed the recipe since you tried it (on the package I bought there is no mention of Hormel anymore; still no sugar which is great!), but it tastes more like fried bologna or fried SPAM to me. Yes, I’ve had both fried bologna and fried SPAM before; I’m not as disgusted by those are most people – but that’s certainly not what I want my bacon to taste like! I was really disappointed since most food from Costco, even Kirkland brand, is very good. As you said, convenience would be the only reason to buy this, just so it would look like bacon was added to something, but I completely agree, stick with traditional real pan fried bacon for real bacon flavor.
