For years these have been my favorite! Over the last year the quality has been declining. I opened a new bag today and it sounded like rocks as I shook the contents into a pan! These pieces are so big and hard I could break a tooth. Inedible. What has happened Hormel?

I was all ready to but the 20oz. Pkg of these bacon bits...I always look at reviews prior to buying for guidelines! WOW! Looks like Loyal many year customers from all over the country are appalled with the quality they has come to rely on. Will check elsewhere! Get it together Hormel. Product quality & consistency are King.

What Happened to the Quality?

My mother and I have both bought Hormel Bacon Bits for years and years. They have always, unfailingly, been the best on the market... until recently. The last bag we bought was just full of fat and grease, completely inedible. Next we tried the Hormel Bacon Bits jar from a different grocery thinking maybe our usual store just got a bad batch but they were worse but in a different way. They have no fat, no softness and are so dark and hard that we were afraid the bacon bits might break someone's teeth! I am disappointed and distressed to have wasted my money.

What in the heck happened to Hormel's bacon bits?!?

I have used Hormel's bacon bits for many years. They were seriously the best quality and the meatiest bits until the last few months. Lately, every package has a large quantity of fat, which was never the case before. In fact, they have become low quality bacon bits, comparable to that of Oscar Meyer. I understand that the cost of everything is higher now due to inflation, but unfortunately it appears that Hormel has decided to cut company costs by sacrificing the quality of it's product.

What has happened?? I have counted on these Bacon Bits as the only ones I will buy for many,many years. I just bought 2 of them as I had some salad cravings. Upon opening one no "bits" would shake out. Forcefully shaking the bag onto a plate I could not believe my eyes. Huge "globs" of very fatty lumps of bacon which you can clearly see all the white fat. The interior of the bag was covered with fat and you could not even remove the bacon on the bottom as they were stuck to the plastic in a layer of fat. These are absolutely not edible. The 2nd bag was more of the same. I've bought them in the same big box store on the same shelf for years without a problem so I didn't even think to inspect them first. No more of that. Shrinkflation and higher prices are one thing but terrible quality is not acceptable. Please make your bacon bits as they once were. Something has changed and I will not continue to buy these.

Much like the other recent reviews, this product went from lean, crispy, flavorful bacon pieces to almost all fatty, gristly, flavorless bits. I will sadly stop buying until recipe changes back.

As many others have pointed out in the reviews, these bacon bits were once the best but have changed for the worse. Now they are full of fat and a chewy mess. Will be looking for an alternative.

What happened? You had the only bacon bit product that I have ever found that I would use in my recipes. They were crispy and full of flavor. Now they are full of fat, they look uncooked and unappetizing. No way can I use them on my home cooked dishes. I am hurrying back to the last place that had the cooked ones to buy them out. I won't be purchasing them thereafter unless you change it back! I can't understand why good products always have to be messed with. I pay over $6.00 per pouch but it was worth it. Not anymore.

These have been our family's go-to bacon bits for years. Over the past 6-8 weeks, the quality has dramatically declined! There is significantly more fat and gristle in the package now. They are just awful now. It is very disappointing as we will just start buying bacon and making our own bacon bits. I'll keep an eye on these, and if the quality returns, I will start buying them again.

Very poor quality

The quality has dropped lately. Mostly chunks if bacon gristle and refrigerating it causes it to clump into oily fatty clumps. Maybe it being undercooked or poor quality bacon. Sad these were my favorite bits.

Have used this brand and kind almost everyday justifying the price for convenience. Loved there was minimal fat to pick out and NOW it is the WORST!! Thought the one I left on the shelf at another store may have been a fluke BUT the next time I shopped a different store I found the same icky looking thing so left it too. I will NOT purchase this unless it goes back to what it is supposed to be. It looks like you ADDED an extra 40% fat instead of what the package says!

I always buy hormel because it is the crispiest non fatty bacon pieces I can find. I noticed today the product has completely changed and what you get is more similar to off brand bacon bits. Highly disappointed in this new change. The really fatty pieces show sell by later date than the crispy old style

The bacon bits product has been changed for the worse. Now it is similar to the OM and store brand product. Hormel bits used to be lean and full of flavor. I buy several pouches a week for my salads. I will not buy this new fatty version. This is an awful change. Please bring back the original version of bits.

Great texture...well flavored with a nice amount of smokiness. This bacon works on a salad, but also enhances sandwiches, pasta and scrambled eggs.

Our family loves to add this to many of our favorite foods. However, instead of being crunchy & flavorful, many packs are now full of fat & seem almost undercooked. QC needs to take a closer look.

Makes Potato Salad Easy!

My potato salad call for 6 pieces of cooked bacon chopped into pieces. One jar of Hormel Real Bacon Pieces is the equivalent -- it does the trick, tastes great, and is so easy!
