Food For Thought: 5 Reasons Why Bacon Is The Best
Since this is the month when Bacon Day is celebrated, here at Papa John’s we thought we’d take a moment to look at what makes this food so great.
As a nation, there are a number of foods we all love to try, taste, eat regularly and indulge in and bacon is arguably right up there at the top.
So without further ado, feast your eyes on our top five reasons why bacon is the best. Remember to let us know if we’ve missed any out.
1. The Wonderful Smell of Bacon
If the first thing on your morning menu is bacon, you’ll be all too familiar with rushing through the kitchen door and smelling it sizzling in the pan.
Breathing in the scent of bacon cooking is just as enjoyable as the smell of freshly baked bread and, like other foods, it causes a reaction in your brain to tell you that food is on the way.
However, most other meats you cook don’t have the same memorable aroma as bacon, which is just one of the reasons we love it.
2. The Perfect Pizza Topping
Tasting incredible in a sandwich or wrapped around a chicken breast, bacon also makes for the perfect topping and addition to any size of pizza.
There are so many options when it comes to this food. For example, adding it alongside succulent chicken, tangy tomatoes, fresh onions and peppers to make the perfect pizza or choosing it as an extra addition to a whole host of other tasty ingredients and delightful flavours.
Is bacon one of your favourite pizza toppings? It’s certainly one of ours, and it features on a number of our pizzas, including the Chicken BBQ, Chicken Club and of course, the mighty All The Meats.

3. It’s Versatile
Streaky, smoked, unsmoked or crispy, however you like your bacon it definitely comes in a number of varieties to suit your personal palate.
So not only does it smell and taste good, it’s also incredibly versatile and can be enjoyed just the way you please.
Bacon also works its way into a wide range of meals, including casseroles, pastas and quiches, making it even more versatile than we originally thought!
4. Let’s Not Forget the Taste
It’s adaptable and it smells amazing, but let’s not forget that bacon also tastes absolutely incredible.
With the option of smoked or unsmoked, you can find the ultimate way your bacon should taste in order to reach pure food perfection. Our favourite is smoked back bacon cooked to crisp perfection.
Combined with the flavours you experience when enjoying this food, the taste alone is another reason why bacon is just simply irresistible.
5. The Special Ingredient in Unusual Food Combinations
Lastly on our list of reasons why bacon is so brilliant is that it’s one of the ingredients found in a number of unusual food combinations.
Examples that you wouldn’t even think would work but certainly do include bacon in ice cream, cookies and even chocolate!
Hey, don’t knock it until you’ve tried it, as you’ll soon see why this food is one of the best there is for mankind to enjoy.
