I'm not a vegetarian, but I can't stand the smell out taste of bacon. Any time this comes up in conversation I'm made to feel like I'm in a strange and unreasonable minority, but I'm sure I'm not the only one to hate it's porky vileness!

Am I?

Bacon is the meaty salty porcine food of the gods.

I have bacon flavour lip balm. Yum grin

I don't like it. Sometimes I fall into believing the bacon hype, and I will make a bacon sandwich. I never enjoy it.
I should remember really.

I don't HATE it though.

And very very weird

I can only assume you're a robot...

YABVU. Bacon is God's gift to humankind. Of course, it has to be crispy - flaccid white bacon fat is an aberration!

Well, I don't eat any red meat at all, just chicken and fish.... Oh and the odd bacon sandwich! I didn't eat meat for nearly 20 years until pregnancies - cravings for bacon sarnies with DS1 and chicken with DS2. Better not have anymore kids or I'll be eating steak next.

I don't know anyone who doesn't like a bacon sandwich.

I know some ex-vegetarians who were "turned" by the smell of bacon. I don't know anyone who doesn't like it, therefore YABU wink

BigSilky Wed 06-Feb-13 18:00:58

YABU, I'm genuinely horrified. What is this place? People don't know what casseroles are, people don't like bacon...

Titsalinabumsquash Wed 06-Feb-13 18:02:04

.... I don't think I understood what you meant op...

Ruprekt Wed 06-Feb-13 18:03:13

Am confused.

HOW can anyone hate the smell of cooking bacon. Tis food of the gods!

Narked Wed 06-Feb-13 18:04:11

YANBU. It's reeks.

I hate to rock the boat but I like bacon BUT only if it's well-done and crispy. There's nothing worse than bacon in a cafe or canteen that's really anaemic and chewy, fat and all. Actually makes me heave...

wonderingsoul Wed 06-Feb-13 18:04:50

I'm with you op.

All my friends think I'm dirty and wrong

I to some times want to like it. So I say I'll try .. till i spit it out and feel like hanging my head in shame whilst they all stare daggers at me.

I just don't get the hipe

WorraLiberty Wed 06-Feb-13 18:05:32

Same here Worried, it has to be grilled and crispy

Oh and preferably smoked

Tis food of the gods!

Muslims may choose to differ.

CaptainSweatPants Wed 06-Feb-13 18:06:14

It makes me retch too

But luckily I'm Jewish so perfect reason not to eat it!

HanneHolm Wed 06-Feb-13 18:06:18

i have never ever ever met anyone who hates bacon

lottiegarbanzo Wed 06-Feb-13 18:06:26

YANBU well, I've been vegetarian for over 20 years and have no interest in eating meat of any kind (and when I did eat meat I liked bacon) BUT I do find the smell of cooking bacon particularly foul (and used to have to hold my breath when walking past a breakfast vendor at the local train station.

There seems to be a commonly held view that because a few people have tried vegetarianism for a while, then been tempted back to eating meat via bacon, that bacon possesses magical properties barely resistable to any vegetarian. See the failure of logic there? a few / all - not the same. Yucky, yuck, yuck.

bigTillyMint Wed 06-Feb-13 18:06:46

I don't really like it - it's just about OK if cooked in a dish, but I don't like fryups!

JellyBelly10 Wed 06-Feb-13 18:08:37

No YANBU. Bacon is basically slithers of grimness! The worst by far is smoked bacon, the smell of smoked bacon makes me want to run for the hills and vomit! I hate, hate, hate its artificial smokiness (but then I hate BBQ sauce and any other 'smoky' tastes that so many people seem to love). Bacon 'rind' is basically a fatty, chewy worm-like thing that is like chewing a piece of hose-pipe andthe meat of bacon is starngely too pink and too salty and too chemical-tsating. Bacon is utterly vile. Any meat that even my fat cats will turn their noses up at must be bad!

Food of the Gods?


All cannot dine on swine.

PhilMcAverty Wed 06-Feb-13 18:09:35

I'm glad I'm not the only one, but not surprised I'm in the minority.

It's vile and bacon butties are worse than devils testicles.

You've never met a vegetarian? A Jewish or other faith person who does eat certain meats?!
