Looks good and tastes good

Very pleased with this purchase. The bacon not only looked good in its plastic case with just the right amount of fat but it tasted good. Will certainly buy again.

Rating: 1 star out of 5


Worst bacon ever. No fat at all, no taste at all. I can see why it's on offer - will not buy waitrose bacon again. Rubbish!!!

Rating: 2 star out of 5

used to love this

Last 2 packs we received had over a half inch of fat, about an inch on the thinner end, slices seemed very thin too. Not much bacon left when you cut off the fat to avoid greasy pasta dishes, would not have picked this up if I'd seen it in a supermarket. Avoiding from now on.

Rating: 1 star out of 5


Wouldn't recommend this bacon - very thin and the fat is a strange colour when it's cooked. For the price it's not good at all.

Nicest bacon I've had in a while...

Bought this on 2 for £6 and have to say it was the nicest bacon I've eaten in a long while. Will definitely buy again.

Scallop pops make tasty, fuss-free canapés for your next dinner or garden party. Replace the bacon with pancetta, if you prefer, and source the best scallops you can find.
