Which brand of bacon is best?

Consumer Reports tested 15 different brands of regular and thick-sliced uncooked bacon, precooked bacon and turkey bacon to find the best.

Other top contenders included 16-ounce packages of Oscar Mayer (thick cut) and Walmart’s Great Value (lower sodium), which priced out at $5.50 and $4.50, respectively.

So…which brand is the best bacon brand in your opinion?
