Bacon ratings in the Wall Street Journal

Kirk | Oct 3, 200309:50 AM     16

This morning's "Weekend Journal" section has a story on mail order vs. grocery store bacons. (Not exactly the most pressing business story of the day, but it IS the Weekend Journal...)

Here's what they said about the best they tried:

"Niman Ranch
Applewood smoked bacon
$6.35/12 ounces
www.nimanranch.com
510-808-0340


QUALITY: Best Overall. Good, meaty bacon; smokiness wasn't overpowering but gave nice balance to chewy slices. Cooked up a bit curly.


SHIPPING COST/TIME: Free overnight FedEx for three items; otherwise, it's $15 for up to 20 pounds.


RETURN POLICY: Satisfaction guaranteed. Contact site for return or refund.


PHONE/WEB EXPERIENCE: Site fairly easy to use; some "update" links were hard to find for order quantity.


COMMENT: Also offers no-nitrate and slab bacon in applewood smoke flavor, as well as beef, pork and lamb cuts. Minimum bacon order, 12 ounces."
