World Wide Bacon Shortage

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow/world-bacon-shortage-unavoidable-223157784.html

Oh, no.  Can this be true?  A shortage of bacon next year?

The price of bacon has doubled since 2006.  What will be the price next year?

I don't eat as much of it as I used to (because I don't eat breakfast like I used to), so often the last few slices go bad.  Hmmm--must not allow that to happen now.

Some won't be bothered by this as they don't eat bacon.  I do.  Do you?

Update:  the British article was to scare a few farmers there, but they managed to panic Americans big time.  Thus, there will be plenty of bacon. :)

Somehow I always thought that there would be an endless supply of bacon.

Maxwell and Babe had better be careful.

No!! It can't be! Bacon is already so pricey. I guess I'll have to trick myself into thinking Bacos are real bacon. :]

Drats to That! We love bacon. The only way I can serve kale in this house is with bacon.

Hi Rebecca, Today I bought some bacon and paid $8.00. It was center cut (only 12 oz). Ouch!

Mary, bacon does indeed add a nice flavoring to foods. If I think of it in time, I like to add bits of it to a salad. Yum.

I'll be sending an e-mail to you from my other addy.

Yes, I do. But isn't this not true..:))))

How can it not be true? I read it on the internet. LOL.

Because of your comment I checked and, yup, you're right. Dang Pig Association in Britain putting out that article which panicked many Americans. The story was picked up all over the world. No shortage, but guess the prices are going up. Nooooo.

glorm said...

Wow, L, I didn't think anyone noticed and would miss me! As to why, I really don't have one good answer. Sometimes I think I have something to contribute but really don't. LOL.

I spend far too much time on the internet and am *trying* to cut back, as I am so far behind in housework and crafts that it's not even funny.
