Bushcraft Food Review: Yoder's Canned Bacon

When I first tried Yoder's Canned Bacon, I was honestly not expecting it to be very good. Canned bacon? How good could that taste?

To my surprise, it is VERY tasty. In fact, I had planned to eat a can of Yoder's Bacon over several days during a recent backcountry excursion, but after eating just a few pieces, I ended up scarfing the whole can down in one sitting! Embarrassing I know, but it was worth it!

Each Yoder's can consists of three packs of hardwood smoked, precooked bacon sealed inside a can.

The bacon slices are THIN, but having the ability to store bacon for years without it going bad definitely helps to make up for this.

Although Yoder's is a bit more expensive than buying fresh bacon, it will stay good for years, which makes it a great comfort food option for your prep kit, long term storage in a cabin, or inside your bushcraft pack. Add in the great taste and I think it is a homerun.

5 out of 5 Stars (Highly Recommended)
