Too thin

This bacon is so thin that it is almost impossible to separate the rashers for cooking. I must admit it tastes ok, but very difficult to handle.

Thin and bland

I'd rather pay a little more for proper bacon with flavour

Thin cut, but tasty

I normally cut and cook the fatty part first, then cook the lean part quickly in the fat to keep it moist. As it is cut so thinly I have found grilling or frying the rasher as a whole, the lean dries out very quickly to the point of being inedible.

tesco quality, too!

It doesn't cook properly or taste good because it's full of water and chemicals. Horrible white watery scum tells you that. And because it's watery, it spits badly. I have had hot fat spat into my eyes twice. Really, Ocado, I'd rather pay the extra for decent quality.
