Both Loblaw's and Superstore have PC Bacon in 500g packs - says selected varieties but I think it's only regular and low sodium.
This looks like a pretty good price for a higher quality bacon than the 'Carver's Choice' or other off-brands.
I like the low sodium option, picked up a few packs for the freezer!

OP, it helps to put price in the title. The flyer says save up to 3.54. This sale price is ok, there's no way it'd be worth $7 regularly.

FWIW, according to my friend who works for Maple Leaf 'Carver's Choice' is usually the same grade as normal bacon or higher. It's just cheap because it isn't in perfect strips. It tastes great and I always buy it.

Great! Thanks OP. I'll be scanning the discounted section. If you can find them for 50% off quick sale, these are 1.77! :)

This is a good price for a 500g pack.

Agreed - great bacon, but a pain in the ass because of the poor shape it's in. I cook it a pound at a time in the oven and cut up for bacon bits and such.

Still 0.44 away from what I would consider a hot deal for 500g bacon = <$3.00
and, FYI, no one should support the industry move to 375g bacon, unless its sub = <$2

Worst experiences with Carver's choice. 99% fat in the 4 packages I bought. They go out of their way on terms of packaging to deceive you thinking you bought a good cut.

I find PC bacon better quality and cut.

I find PC bacon the better quality. Not much water to very little water is added. I remember cooking Maple Leaf or Schneiders bacon and it splattering all over. A batch of 4 to 5 slices will immediately fill the bottom of the pan in liquid (oil and water combination). To top it off, the huge amount of shrinkage. Cooking PC Bacon, I can do about 2 batches of 4 or 5 slices and then pour it out. And the oil will still be less than 1 batch of the other brands. And it doesn't shrink to a tiny shrivel.

For $3.49, it's a good price. I always get it when it's on sale for $3.99.

I bought 8 of the Spalding at Wholesale Club.
I picked packages that looked like they had more meat than fat but at home when I opened two packages I noticed that the from slices were "extra red", colored somehow and the rest of the package had much more fat than meat. The slices were very difficult to pull apart.

This bacon is mostly good for making bacon bits.

meh, that attitude is killer. Items increase in price, that's a factor of life. Are you making the same salary you made 7 years ago? Don't get me wrong, I'd prefer it if I didn't have to pay more but price increases happen on everything. If that's the price you are stuck on, would you rather decrease in quality than size?
Pop (as example) was $4.99/case FOREVER... they finally got us hooked on those 710ml bottles but guess what? they actually keep their carbonation for less time (they go flat quicker than cans did)
i remember when bread was a nickel too, doesn't mean i expect it to still be!!
