super-helpful guide to all things bacon! And enjoy it... responsibly!
Bring Home This Bacon
Fill your grocery bags with these bad boys (and we mean that in a good
Jennie-O Extra Lean Turkey Bacon - How many times can we sing the joys of
Jennie-O's Extra Lean Turkey Bacon? This 20-calorie-a-slice stuff is great for
recipes or to chew on straight from the pan (after it cools, of course!). And
with just a half-gram of fat, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, and 3g protein per slice, you
can gobble down THREE slices for a POINTS® value of 1*. It doesn't quite
crumble, but it does get crisp if you cook it just right. Good work, Jennie!
Louis Rich Turkey Bacon - For those of you who want more authentic (as in
fattier) bacon and don't mind a few extra calories, check out Louis Rich's
version by Oscar Mayer. A slice clocks in with a respectable 35 calories, 3g
fat, 1g carbs, 0g fiber, and 2g protein (POINTS® value 1*). It's INSANELY
Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits and Real Bacon Pieces - Here we have the real
deal -- already cooked, crumbled, and ready to be chewed! Perfect for a fast
fix. A tablespoon of either has 25 calories, 1.5g fat, 0g carbs, 0g fiber, and
3g protein (POINTS® value 1*). Bits and Pieces sold separately (literally --
they're two different products!). Find them where the salad dressings are

Bac~Os Chips and Bac~Os Bits - These are itty bitty bacon-flavored bits and
chips made of soy (two separate products, people). They've got great stats --
30 calories, 1.5g fat, 2g carbs, 0g fiber, and 3g protein (POINTS® value 1*)
per serving (1 - 1.5 tablespoons). So feel free to sprinkle 'em on salads, egg
dishes, sandwiches, and more! We can't help but wonder how these can be
so good, and yet all of the other vegetarian bacon products taste so
