That’s my experience, too. Chris getting them at half price - this is a very good deal.
Trader Joe’s carries them, and it’s around $5 per lb - not a great price but better than $5.49 for 12 oz regular bacon (3/4 lb Ouch! ).
In checking around, Aldi has bacon for $3.85 lb (454 grams). Not sure of current prices, but Costco was $3.75 two years ago. I get it at Restaurant Depot for $3.24.
Costco UK prices, anyone?
Getting a business tax ID (like you’re going to collect sales tax) has some serious benefits. I did it in my home state of Georgia - it’s an online process and was easy. For Restaurant Depot membership, you need it, and membership is permanent - you can cancel the business tax account once you have it.
Costco has advantages for business customers too - membership is the same price; you just need the tax ID. I’m seeing a seriously good deal today:
Delivered bacon ends, $2.06 US/lb - YEAH BABY. This works out to 4 Euros/kg or 6.55$AUD/kg.
