[Costco] Costco-Kirkland 3pk Bacon 3.97

Hey all, Costco has their Kirkland Signature bacon 3 pack on for 3.97 which is a great deal. The computer shows the price going back up to the regular price on the 10th so grab em while the grabbin's good. Got me some bacon to cook...mmmmmm.....bacon and eggs for breakfast; BLTs for lunch; bacon cheeseburger for supper and a heart attack for dessert.

3 packs for $4? That's a really good deal. Cook it all up, throw it in ziplocks in the freezer, and whenever you need bacon just microwave it.

Do you think this is clearance priced because of the best before date? Wow, their bacon is soooo good, I always buy it there.

Furthermore, you can cook it in the microwave to start with - take a dinner plate, layer it with a few paper towels, place bacon strips side by side, (you can get 10 or so on a plate) and then cover with paper towel. I have a reg. size Panny microwave, and we cook it for about a minute per slice, with this brand. Watch it the last 2 minutes though. Also, we like ours crispy, so our time frame may be higher than what you want. If you have more bacon to cook, you can layer it on top of the other bacon using a couple of sheets of paper towel, or even on top of the other bacon, but it doesn't work as well to cook it when it overlaps. CAREFULLY remove it from the microwave oven, as it is really hot, then sop up any extra grease with additional paper towel. They have exactly the right amount of salt and flavoring in that brand. Also, look at EACH pack - 2 times now, out of my 3 pack bundle, 1 of them had lost the air tight grip to the bacon, and the bacon was questionable as a result. CHECK your best before date!

I thought one could freeze it in the package as is, so long as it's frozen before the best before date? Anyone know? Thanks!

why would freezing raw bacon be any different than freezing other raw meats? I freeze everything, cooked or not.

they like to cook and freeze them all at once, so they can have bacon whenever they want without waiting too long for it to cook

Because when the call for Bacon strikes you don't have time to screw around cooking it!
Don't talk about it, be about it

I freeze mine without cooking. But then again, I use it in many different things and raw is required.

It seems strange that it would have .97 on the end for a sale, this usually means a clear out. My guess would be it is close to the due date.

Also I have never seen Kirkland brand bacon. I'll have to look for it, normally buy the 1kg maple smoked slab.
That's my 2cents worth

Damn, just bought a 3pack of kirkland yesterday here in London for reg $9.97. Got home and noticed a short stale date on them. Assumed these weren't selling because the maple leaf was on an endcap/sale for the same price. (We prefer the kirkland!).

Going to feel like a douche getting a price adjustment on perishable food!

Just came back from South Edmonton location - no sale price.

Perhaps location specific?

I believe the expiry is near the end of march, so they are moving it before expiry rolls around. As long as you cook some this weekend and freeze the rest expriy date shouldn't be an issue. I've seen them do this before...not sure if the buyer over ordered or if it just wasn't bacon season.
