I'm a vegetarian, but even if I wasn't, I'd still refuse bacon, because of it's lack of nutrition.
Bacon is meat. Anything that has a lot of protein in it does not lack nutrition, by definition. What bacon does have is a load of additives. It's the highy processed nature of bacon that makes it unhealthy, not the fact that it's meat.

That's the point I'm getting at. The additives are what makes it nutritionally bad, coupled with the high calories from fat, and not from protein, as you would get in lean meats such as chicken.

This isn't about nutrition.

It's about making money off of Bacon Foil.
And influencing bad nutrition in the process.
I promise to make you a special bacon flavored tofu sheet soaked in vegetable fat to avoid sticking. I will even add calcium.

I'd rather you ditched the concept of bacon entirely and came up with a sheet, that preserved the flavour and nutritional content of the original dish.

Or hell, maybe just create a sheet that infuses the flavour of something, without any additives or bad shit.

You should market this to ThinkGeek, it'll go great with their bacon soap.

It's the bacon bandwagon I'm interested in. If I wanted a boring sheet without a taste sensation gimmick I would just use actual foil.

I don't think you understand how well loved bacon is. It's not like we can just turn away from that kind of force. People already know they are going to die, they want to die knowing they lived life to the full and for a lot of people that will include bacon.

Are you actually going to contribute anything to this thread or just make it your mission to ruin it for anyone trying to enjoy it?

I did contribute, I contributed my take on how I feel about processed foods. The last bit was me signing off, at accepting defeat when it came to trying to convince teacake about the evils of bacon.

Besides, what have you contributed to this thread, other than some half-assed attempt at calling me out for voicing my opinion about something. I think you should stick to TNZ.

Looked to me more like another drive-by.

Well, I was enjoying the thread just fine without you coming in with the intention of messing it up. I didn't feel the need to comment because I liked it just fine already. But then you kept making your anti-bacon posts (I can't believe I just had to type "anti-bacon," what the fuck, Internet?).

As long as that doesn't become synonymous with me, I'm cool.
