About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I just noticed these in the Redhill branch of Sainsbury's. I had a look online and they're the same price, so presumably it must be national. Same price for both smoked and unsmoked.

Unsmoked, dry cured, air dried, bacon medallions. Made using only outdoor bred British Pork. Inspired by the original recipe of The Jack Scaife family of butchers

Our Taste the Difference bacon medallions are made with extra trimmed outdoor bred British pork and our signature sea salt cure, based on a family recipe handed down through three generations. It is hand cured then carefully air dried for a rich flavour... that's why you can taste the difference

British Pork, Sea Salt, Sugar, Preservatives: Sodium Nitrite, Sodium Nitrate; Antioxidant: Sodium Ascorbate.

  • Produced using 105g of pork per 100g of finished product
  • Packaged in a protective atmosphere
  • This pack contains 4 servings

Dry Cured

The outdoor bred pork in this product comes from producers inspected to RSPCA welfare standards by the RSPCA's independently certified farm assurance scheme. For more information visit rspcaassured.org.uk/sai…rys.

Our pigs are born outdoors and after weaning are moved inside to be reared in straw bedded barns.

    Same price in Sunderland (Silksworth), smoked and unsmoked, long date too.
    Oh yeah I forgot to mention they've got a good date on them, 20th/22nd December. Not that they'll last that long, I think one pack should be just enough for a decent sandwich

    Cheap because the streaky part is going for pigs in blankets
    Well jokes on them, I’m going to wrap this around my full sized sausage for Xmas dinner.

    I don't doubt these are good or anything... But I'd like to know where burger vans get their bacon from.

    I've tried looking for proper THICK bacon like from a burger van everywhere, tried all the supermarkets all my local butchers and farm shops and I have never been able to find the sort of bacon you get at a burger van.

    Very random I know, but please help 😁
    Any butcher that cut their own bacon will cut to your chose thickness. I used to use the CO-OP.

    Where’s the best place to buy “decent “ bacon from? Locally I’ve got Asda and Lidl with ALDI, Tesco’s, farmfoods not to far away. But then Mark’s and Spencer a bit further! I’ve been told Marks the best but have to pay a bit of a premium!? I’m also near the “famous “ Bury Market for various butchers but I and my parents thought that it’s quite poor quality wise! Thanks in advance!
    I don't know if you have access to a Booker Wholesale. They do good quality bacon and its not too expensive.

    Great saving! RRP is a bit high for a bit of bacon though isn't it?! You don't even get the whole slice!
    They've cut the good bit off!

    Offer was in Eltham, London - but no stock of the smoked version on the shelves, and hardly any of the non smoked

    Just got back from Brentwood Sainsbury’s and was going to post this. Sorry everyone there were 8 packs of unsmoked in Brentwood and I bought all of them. I didn’t notice smoked but that could simply be because I don’t like smoked bacon so didn’t look. Hopefully these won’t shrink too much as dry cured and No added water, which is what causes a lot of the shrinkage.

    Let's not forget that the beautifully described medallions are actually dead baby pig!
    Doubt it. They will use fully grown pigs.

    Looks to be finished as it's back to full price online. Couldn't find in my local medium/large sized store anyway when I looked on Sunday but didn't get to check anywhere else.
