I get whatever is the cheapest. It usually runs around $4.85 per pack. We have bacon or Turkey bacon 2-3 Times a week. The turkey bacon is  cheaper and we prefer that.

 We are paying about $3.50 a package for Tyson or Oscar Meyer. We have bacon usually on Saturday mornings.

Just about never.

And if we do get it, typically it's hormel.

The bacon I buy is usually 7.99-9.99 a pound but I'm picky about bacon. We usually go through a pound every 7-10 days.

ETA I usually buy Wright's thick cut or I buy it from the butcher counter thick cut.

 I don't buy it anymore unless there is a good sale.  It's usually around 6 bucks now per pound.  Last time I was at the store there were a bunch of people discussing whether or not to start raising pigs and selling bacon to get rich!

I'm a fat-ass anyway, I don't need it lol!

We get ours at HEB as well for about the same price & I can't think of the brand. It's not their brand but some other cheap one there.
