Oscar Mayer is a brand that I grew up with. Since I was a child I remember the name represented quality and wholesome goodness. As an adult, I've tried other brand for various reasons (price, availability, curiosity), but I have always return to the Oscar Mayer brand for consistency, quality and flavor. In our consumer products and services oriented society quality and value are # 1. The FDA ensures safety and consistency. The companies themselves are responsible for their reputation and variety. Every product I've tried for 40 years had been rich in flavor and the many other qualities that has made the brand a staple in my refrigerator.
I cook all my bacon in a iron skillet in the oven. It comes out perfect every time. I sometimes use the center cut and sometimes the thick cut. This brand always cooks the same, crispy and crunchy not fatty and stringy. This brand taste delicious.
I love the taste of Oscar Mayer bacon and the way it cooks up so crispy. It has a nice taste and I have been buying it for over twenty years. I would love if they would make another cut of bacon a little thicker than the one they have out now as their thicker cut.
When I cook up a package of Oscar Mayer bacon I know exactly what I'm getting. The consistency of each piece, as well as the flavor, are always the same: perfect! I can count on crisp bacon that is not too fatty coming from a package that cooks up evenly.
I have tried multiple brands of bacon but I always come back to Oscar Mayer wondering why I ever left. I find it always has good meat versus fat ratios, and it doesn't hide the meat up front and back it with 75% fat behind like some brands. I like its consistent flavor, and it's not as salty as some brands either.

I have purchased Oscar Mayer Bacon for 50 years. However; I will not get it again because it is now cut so thin and some packages have 80 to 85% fat. I just purchased 7 pkg and out of them 4 were heavily laden with fat and so very thinly cut. I buy the bacon and then individually quick freeze each piece so I can pull out only as many as I need at a time. The time before this purchase, I had 2# of bacon this way. Sad to say your product is not good anymore. It is very expensive which I did not mind paying as it was good and had none of these problems.
Not like it was years ago. I no longer purchase Oscar Mayer bacon. During the past year the bacon smells terrible, isn't packaged in even strips, is very fatty, and tastes bad. Additionally, the price is ridiculously high for an inferior product. Don't buy it even if it's on sale.
The hotdog package always leaks, there is always a hole between the seal, and the plastic. All y'all obviously care about is poor product quality, and put a dollar ahead of people's health. ** yall...
I only buy Oscar Mayer bacon, preferably thick cut, although I try to buy it on sale because it is more expensive than other brands. It consistently tastes the best, shrinks less and cooks evenly. I love it!
I'm a long time buyer of OM thick cut bacon. In the last several months I no longer get thick bacon, even though it is printed on the package. I get a poor brand of bacon that is less than regular cut and shrinks a LOT because there is so much fat. Since Kraft foods has purchased OM the quality has plummeted. The taste has been affected as well compared to the OM bacon of the past. Very, very disappointed and will be looking for a different brand from now on.
