I wrote about this awhile back and since then found another one of these Swift ads for Bacon in a jar. The ad tells us that there are "5 extra slices in every jar". Swifts must have spent a fortune selling this product because I've never seen any ads for canned bacon from other producers like Armour. It also seems to me that this bacon is not cooked, instead it is wrapped in wax paper and sealed in to be removed and cooked in an oven by the consumer. Of more interest to me would have been pricing of canned bacon vs fresh back in the early 1900's. Most people would have bought fresh bacon when it was needed, hence the term "Bringing home the bacon" was coined. I know that about 30 years ago canned bacon disappeared entirely from store shelves due to increased costs and just a lack of demand in the face of improvements on refrigerators and freezers in homes. In my research I found a company called "yoder's" that sells canned bacon. Yoder's bacon is fully cooked and wrapped in wax paper in a standard size can and hermetically sealed. It's rather expensive at $12/can but it's mainly marketed to the "survivalist" weirdos who seem to think they can put away enough food to live out the rest of their lives after whatever disaster their tinfoil covered brains has concocted comes to pass.
