There was 10 oz of bacon grease, 1 lb cooked bacon, and 1 lb 6 oz of air, I guess.
Water, given off as water vapor and steam while cooking.

I'd be totally humidified too, but if you make any bacon chocolate candy I hope I can convince you to send me a care package.

Can I haz bacon candy?

I think bacon candy would be better if the bacon was baked flat instead of cooked curly in a pan, like I do. I've heard baking it with brown sugar on top is wonderful too! Oh, what about brown sugar glazed bacon WITH chocolate?

Seattle supermarket sells precooked bacon for $22/lb.
Breakfast bacon $22 a pound?- MSN Money
Good article about convenience foods and the costs.

Brought it once, as I was in a pinch, on my way to a picinic and forgot the bacon I already cooked to top my potatoe casserole after it cooked. Stopped at the store and brought it. Was ok but expensive.
I buy bacon in bulk and cook 1 lb of it layed out on cooling rack over a sheet pan - stay nice and flat. Then layer it in a plastic container,separting each layer with plasctic wrap,and freeze that where I can take as much or little out as I need it.
For the uncooked I layer in another plastic container separted with plastic and freeze again for little or as much as I need at the time,
