This last Saturday we had a bacon tasting at the Meathenge labatories. 'Vande Rose' was one of the bacons we tasted. This producer is located in Oskaloosa,Iowa. They use Premium Duroc Pork. This was a most excellent bacon. It had a lot of Meat to fat ratio. This bacon is smoked with applewood but did not have a big smoke profile. The texture was firm and chewy. This bacon was salted to perfection. The taste had a real pork flavor. We tasted it next to the Nueske bacon. I think it is a little unfair to compare the two. The Nueske grabbed you with its big smoke.I did the only fair thing. I tried it again the next day, and then again the next day. On its own Vande Rose was premium bacon. It just had this 'Real Pork Flavor' and that is why I am going to give it 4 stars out of 5.

If that bacon tastes half as good as it looks, its a winner!
