Bacon.  I'm not sure where suddenly this love of bacon came from.  I mean, people have always loved bacon, was and still is a basic staple for breakfast, on burgers, and many other things... a meat wrap, jalapeno poppers, date wrap, so many options.  But it seems in the last few years this has really taken a leap forward in the bacon lover industry.  Now there are bacon scented clothing, masks (COVID era), bacon flavored lip balm, I mean you name it, there is probably a bacon related item for almost everything.  That may be an exaggeration, but you get the idea.  Bacon is everywhere.

Now, the price of bacon is set to "skyrocket".  The price is higher than it's been in 40+ years.  This is not great news. According to CBS/WCCO, the USDA prices for pork, including bacon is going up...

...bacon prices are jumping by about 12 cents per pound a month — which is about 40 cents more than this time in 2015. The beloved pork product costs on average about $5.61 per pound.

That is definitely a downside, but the upside is that eggs have been dropping in price.  For example- a dozen grade A eggs have dropped by about 30 cents on average since March. This is giving consumers an average price of about $1.79 a dozen.

With this information sounds like limit the bacon intake to just a couple of slices with your meal of a bizillion eggs.  Because why not, right?  Eggs are cheap, bacon is going to be expensive for a bit... everyone needs to make adjustments.
