Bacon Things to remember whilst in Canada

When visiting Canada, and you ask the waiter/waitress/grocery clerk for some Canadian Bacon, they will generally respond in one of two ways.

  1. So…what part of the States are you from?

For the record, in Canada, it’s called ‘Back Bacon’, a center cut of meat from the loin of the pig found on the…let’s say it together…back. American Bacon (or streaky Bacon) comes from the belly cut, where there’s a tad more fat to be found.

This has been a pubic service reminder designed to promote goodwill and joy between the Great White North and their American Neighbor.
