Bacon is one of the most divisive foods out there, being that it’s both so incredibly delicious yet also pervasively unhealthy. Its unhealthiness has certainly contributed to people refraining from eating it, in addition to vegans and vegetarians who want nothing to do with it in any case. For this reason, we’re here to introduce you to Morningstar’s vegetarian bacon strips, or “facon” as some people call it.
No, It Doesn’t Taste Like Bacon
Let’s get the elephant in the room out of the way. No, it doesn’t taste very much like bacon, and there’s no reason to try to convince yourself to think it’s bacon. However, it does taste pretty darn good, and it’s an excellent bacon alternative if you aren’t interested in bacon. There is a “bacon-ish” flavor embedded within the strips, but not too overbearing that it distracts from the other subtle veggie flavors.
It’s Healthier and Lighter
The best part about this facon is that it’s so much healthier than bacon. This is part of the reason why there’s no point in trying to convince oneself that it tastes just like bacon. This product is one of a kind. It has its own unique flavor, and with that flavor comes a much healthier and lighter eating experience. You can add it to your morning eggs and still feel as bright as a whistle when you’re done.
