There is no actual reason to eat bacon. Thinking it tastes good isn’t a valid reason. Nope, it isn’t. I won’t bore you with the horrible details – just know there’s a lot of cruelty that goes into it.


Please don’t eat me. I love you.

But have no fear – you don’t need to totally ditch bacon, you can just make a better bad decision and eat meatless bacon.

They’re not as bad as you might think (or at all, really). Honestly. Besides, sometimes fake stuff is better… ya know, like with bacon or boobs (i kid, i kid).

Here are 6 vegan bacons, and one bacon cooking grease, you gotta try.
