Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits Review

Oscar Mayer Bacon BitsAdding bacon bits can instantly give your salad and other recipes instant va-va-voom! I have stayed away from the fake stuff, but when I saw Oscar Meyer Real Bacon Bits and looked at the decent nutrition facts, I decided to try it out.

Each 1 tablespoon serving provides only 25 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat and 7% of the daily value for sodium (7%). The ingredients are bacon (cured with water, sodium, salt, sugar, sodium phosphates, sodium ascorbate, sodium nitrite), hickory smoke flavor, and artificial flavor.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 tbsp (7 grams)
Calories: 25
Total Fat: 1.5 grams, 2%
Saturated Fat: 0.5%
Sodium: 170 mg, 7%
Protein: 2 grams
Carbohydrates: 0 grams
Price: $1.89 (8 oz)

The taste is pure heaven. But don't take my word for it. My little taste testers loved it. I added it to scrambled eggs, omelets and salads. I confess I made homemade pizza and sprinkled a little on that too. But I even spiced up some green beans with a few sprinkles, and everybody ate it up with no complaints.

I bought a 3 ounce bag of Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits for $1.89 and it was well worth it. I can't say that I really NEED to have Bacon Bits around, but when I do, I'm not going to reach for the fake stuff - which coincidentally has more calories than this.

And just in case you were wondering how many strips of bacon it takes to make a 3 ounce bag ... this actually never crossed my mind, but the folks at Cockeyed.com decided to fry up some bacon and find out - it was 12 strips.
