Default Canned Bacon

I remember 20 years ago when my Dad would always buy a couple of cans of canned bacon to take on this hunting trips, that and a couple of cans of whole canned chicken. Pretty good idea but seems its one item thats no longer available. Anybody seen this on the shelves anymore?

Every bird hunting trip we ate that and canned spam on dry bread, as well as some fresh ruffies in a pan. I haven't seen canned bacon in years either. Sure brings back great memories though.

I saw a picture once of a canned full chicken. It didn't look very appealing!

If you are just looking for pre-cooked bacon, I am sure you could find some pre-cooked bacon in boxes. What scares me is that some of the bacon is not refrigerated and with due dates 3 months down the road. Not sure how good that would be.

You needed to have something to drink when you fried up and ate a can of that salty surprisingly delicious bacon

that stuff was always a ice fishing favorite

good luck in your search

You can still get it!(canned bacon) My brother found a source. It is out of the US but he ordered 3 cases (minimum for free shipping).....only problem was they shipped it UPS not USPS. Brokerage(?) fees were big. 3Lbs/can, 12 cans in a case, and of course its pre-cooked. I can find out the brand and where he ordered from if there is any interest.

Was actually thinking about the whole canned chicken the other day. Haven't had it since I was a kid hanging out in the mountains for the summer with my Dad. It was pretty good actually if memory serves me correctly.

We had to eat it once on an extended hunting trip with nothing else in the grub box. Once you scrpe off all that clear colored jelly stuff on the outside some of it wasn't too bad. Then again we were pretty hungry

We used to use canned bacon on hunt trips. It was made in Denmark and was at least as good as store bacon. I was loking for it a few weeks ago with no luck.

Canned chicken is meant to be used in soup or stew or chicken pie. And that clear jelly will melt when heated. It is chicken broth,

Canned bacon! Now that brings back some memories. The stuff we always got was called Tulip I think, it has been a while but it was not cooked and was wrapped in a wax paper in the can.
Canned chicken is heavenly! We used to can 50 of the Huts old laying chickens every year in quart jars. Dang now I want a canned chicken sandwich...

The stuff I remember was Tulip Brand and came from Denmark. Haven't sen it in years, but it was real handy, if a bit greasy. Still like to take canned ham and instant ptatoes. Yummy.

Canned bacon, canned chicken, canned cake (??) ... You know, I bought some canned oxygen, one time. Yup, whole lot of oxygen. Try everything once, right? It wasn't that great, though, I prefer the fresh (free) stuff.

Yup that old canned bacon does bring back memories. I still buy that canned corned beef and canned potatoes. Cut up corned beef and potatoes, mix together and fry it up. Easy meal.

Here's one my grandpa and father used to eat in the morning. Goose grease and toast. Never acquired the taste myself but they had jars of it. Think it was an old country favourite. (Scotland)

Yep, that canned bacon brings back a lot of fond memories.

Another hunting favourite was and still is canned corned beef hash. But you have to fry it until it's crispy. I only eat it a couple times a year now.
There's enough sodium in it to completely rust away a '59 Chevy in a week.

canned bacon? oh mn I must really be young never heard of it and dont plan to try it. lol
I know at costco you can get precooked bacon, my boss swears by it.
THe canned chicken looks like it was regurgitated by something.
I guess if I had to I would eat it but unless it is needed...

Never heard of canned bacon, but saw a canned whole chicken at an outdoor store in Yellowknife last week. Might could convince me to pick some up next time I'm there...if you'd be willing to send me some jerky from Bergen
