In an interview with a fashion industry web site, Kate Moss said, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Said the rest of the world: Bacon! – Seth Myers
Bacon has long been a favourite in households across Canada; the smoky aroma of sizzling bacon is a welcome addition to any – and every – morning. But our love for bacon is more than just skillet deep; asked to choose between bacon and sex, a whopping 43% of Canadians chose bacon. Men are particularly enamoured with it; according to the same survey (commissioned by Maple Leaf Foods), almost 18% said they simply can’t survive without bacon. Seriously. (Source: Angus Reid)
(Yes, that’s my kid, ready to pounce on a bacon cupcake. We like to start ’em out early!)
What is it about bacon that is so darn life changing? Is it the saltiness of the meat? Or the irresistible combination of crispy and chewy? Why is bacon considered to be a staple for Canadians, ranking up there with maple syrup, double doubles and doughnuts?
Regardless, bacon has played an important role in our culture and lives, bringing us together through the good times (the new Canadian Bacon Cookhouse in Halifax) and bad (the worldwide bacon shortage forecasted in 2012).

(My husband has since confiscated my Bacon t-shirt for himself. Why? Because he finds the combination of taking out two cute little boys AND wearing a Bacon t-shirt to be a “chick magnet”. I say: Hey husband, whatever works for you! While you’re taking the boys out to play, I’m relaxing in my hammock. #lifechanger)
