    Not sure if anyone cans bacon anymore...most I've seen are in reseal packages. I used to buy it on base at the commisary but that was in the early 70's. Have you tried camping or outdoor places??

    I have tried every website I can find by searching every phrase I can think of. I have searched google and yahoo. I am looking for the canned bacon because someone was telling my husband about it and he had never heard of it. Now he has to get his hands on some.

    Isn't canned bacon one of those things like canned frankfurters, canned boiled chicken or powdered eggs? Dates back to the days when people thought you could survive, or would want to survive, in a fallout shelter.

    I wonder how this particular bacon tasted at its age...I didn't see anywhere that said it.

    This also brings me to the question of, "were canning processes better back in the day than they are now?"

    Twenty years is a long time for a product to be canned and still be good. I have had canned goods not last beyond, sometimes earlier, than the dates they're stamped with. The ends swell and the product is no longer edible. At least not as I look at it. Did the canning method associated with the key make a difference? Or were there other factors?

    Matilda,
    You need to try some good ol C rations Some of the stuff was canned in the 40's and is still OK...tho I wouldn't want the canned eggs. The spagetti was ok, the beanie wennies were good..some of the meats depended on how hungry you were.

    I have had in my posession C and K rations, but never ate any.
    I have gotten quite a bit of use out of an old P-38 that I've had forever. I got a new one a few years ago at the Der Teufelhund, a military surplus store just across from the entrance to Parris Island!! So now I have two of those!!

    I say Der Teufelhund is a surplus store, but that may not be correct, per se.

    Here's a description of the place from beauforttraveler.com.

    "Der Teufelhund Phone: (843) 521-9017
    Fax: [0] ( ) 13 - B Marina Blvd.

    The canned bacon I remember was from the 60's or 70's and was distributed by Plumrose - the Danish canned ham people. I don't know why we bought it from time to time because we weren't in the fallout shelter or camping sets. I remember that it was super salty, and very juicy when it came out of the can -- reminded me of the canned hams. It was probably a way for the Danes to export more of their pork products.

    The best part of the C rat was the P-38, chocolate and cigarettes...but you need to taste a few...they really weren't that bad. I did a lot of long haul driving in the A.F. and always had a case of C-rats in the cab and a sterno stove.

    When I saw the instructions on the can to rinse in hot water, I immediately thought of rinsing dried beef before making creamed chipped beef to get rid of excess saltiness, but as I read further, the reason listed on the canned bacon was to be able to separate the strips more easily.

    I do remember a Danish brand that was sold in quite a few places, called Dansk or something like that. Didn't realize they stopped selling it.

    As a kid I remember the old men sitting around after a sunday bar-b-q. Drinking beer and eating summer sausage and plumrose canned bacon. I remember the first time I saw a Plumrose ham, I thought that thats from the bacon people. I also remember Dak Canned Bacon

    The other popular brand was "Celebrity" and it was sold at K-Marts among other places.Google turns up a bunch of people who are also seeking a source....the only success appears to be a poster who found that the product is still available in the US-but only in Alaska! He has a friend who brings him several cases when they come to visit each year....So I guess it's either suck up to an Eskimo, or just suck it up...Sorry

    I had that at Fort Knox,Kentucky when I was in Basic Training,they served it with powdered eggs.It is almost pure fat, when you ate it it left a coating on the roof of that stayed for a couple of hours(yuk!!)this was what they called K rations most K rations are nasty.I liked the C rations that replaced them,when I was in Germany when they got close to date they would pass them out,I lived off-post and took them home to family and we mixed them with other things for meals.

    Yes, go to this site, you can buy it one can at a time, most sites want you to buy a whole case.

    Yea, Really!
    Threads never die! that's one of the beauties of Roadfood.com.
    On the subject, most purveyors of these kinds of products have moved on to other types of packaging as they have improved and packaging materials are available at lower costs.

    I just found it highly suspect that a six-year-old thread was resurrected by a new member who was obviously trying to post a link. Smells like spam, not bacon.

    It may well have been spam, but I figured a new guy cannot post links so I thought put the Amazon link there.
     
    Mea culpa as I never looked at the post dates for the posts above GA,BLERR's posts.

    I'm figuring that Daniel has a business, he saw a request that matched his business, and tried to use it as an opportunity to plug it. My gut feeling is that he didn't even realize how old the post was; his post just doesn't "smell" like spam.

    Agreed, bartl.  I would like to have seen his information.  We have some trigger-happy deleters around here.

    Maybe I don't understand how forums work, but posting an unsolicited link to your business in hopes of making a sale as a new member in an online forum is pretty much the definition of spam as far as I understand it. Actual advertisers pay to promote their businesses.
