  • Its overpriced because a lot of people like bacon and its in high demand so they overprice it, because they know people will buy it, and thats where they make their money

  • I think it's overpriced as an add-on but I get it for fairly cheap at the store.

    I got my bacon (20 slice package) for like $1.50 the other day and maybe I'm naive but I thought it was a good deal lol

    • Wow seriously, $1.50 for 20 slices? #Bargain !

      Maybe bacon is overpriced in California. A 20pc 1lb package of bacon averages about $4.50!

    • Lol yeah, maybe it was just the store or a sale or something but I was pleased. I don't buy by the pound though.

    • Hopefully that sale is still going on, so u can stock up your freeze with tasty bacon! :-D

  • Yes, for the cheap stuff it is £2.00 ($3.05) for a pack of 10. 😢😢😢

  • Yes, I think it is way overpriced. When I look at the weekly grocery adds it surprises me and disappoints me all the time. I have a budget I have to stick to, so cannot be buying bacon as much as I would like. If I am buying bacon it is going to be as a main part of the meal, like a BLT or bacon with breakfast. I have a hard time buying it as an addition for anything or a flavoring agent, as I would like to because of the price.

  • You know what is ridiculously overpriced! ?
    Calamari!
    Squid is cheap af...
    At the markets it's anywhere from 1.99 - 3.99 depending on the squid and that's retail price! At wholesale prices it's even less expensive!
    Batter is cheap, squid is cheap then they charge a premium when it's fried!

    • You know what... you're so right! I never thought about that. Maybe I should try deep frying calimari at home and see how it turns out! ;-)

    • Show All
    • I have to agree, calamari is definitely a profit margin maven for restaurants (as well as pasta)!

    • I forgot to mention that the price was per lb, which is more than what a lot of restaurants will give you!

  • Apparently there have not only been difficulties in meeting FDA standards recently, but the demand has spiked. Simple supply and demand dictates a price hike.

    I love bacon, but I don't complain too much about bacon prices. Pigs are the most intelligent animals we eat by a long shot.
