POPSUGAR Food Poll Are You Over the Bacon Craze? by Katie Sweeney 10/05/10 3 Shares Like us on Facebook Back in 2008, we dubbed bacon the trendiest ingredient of the year. Since then, it seems the culinary world has gone bananas for bacon. There's bacon ice cream, bacon-flavored mayonnaise, even bacon bookmarks! However, yesterday in an article entitled The Bacon Backlash, the Wall Street Journal declared that it's time everyone moved beyond bacon. While I have to agree that it's become a little too prevalent on restaurant menus, when it comes to home cooking, I still believe everything tastes better with bacon — from guacamole to salad dressing.

Let's ditch the so called turkey bacon that has nothing to do with bacon at all - it's a fraud! Spectra 4 years I was never obsessed with it...I just used it in my normal recipes like I always have.

I am over it. I am under it.

I salivate when I hear the word or even see the word bacon. Granted I haven't had a slice of bacon in.....wow... months, I still can taste the saltiness and the crunch. Yum. Since I haven't participated in the craze, I am not really over it :) Susannah-Chen 4 years I'm sort of in the middle here. I still love bacon, but I'm over seeing it everywhere. Can't we just enjoy it like we used to a few years ago? Semi-regularly, but not obsessively? RoaringSilence 4 years I never was particularly into it.
