In the late 1990s, enthusiasm for bacon seemed to hit a fever pitch here in the United States. Now, years later, it doesn’t appear that what some have coined “bacon mania” is slowing down anytime soon.
Bacon is so popular that it even has its own day on Dec. 30. While some argue for or against the health merits of the salt-cured pork, few outright dislike the taste. Even vegetarians get in on the fun by adding meatless bacon knockoffs to the diet.
