Lightlife Smart Bacon Review


When a product comes in a package that has Buzz Lightyear on it, you know you’re in for a treat.

For this one, I let my non-vegan friend try some, to see how it compared to ‘real’ bacon, and let’s just say he was less than impressed. He said it “wasn’t even close” to the real thing, and that he didn’t like it at all. Said something akin to it tasting like wet cardboard.

But don’t fret fellow vegans – I liked it! This one tasted very similar to the Yves Veggie Bacon. It came with a comparable amount of slices (I didn’t count, but it was definitely more than 5) and had that familiar subtle smoky taste with that soft veggie deli slice texture.

If you cooked it in oil then patted it dry with a paper towel, it even got crispy! I wasn’t able to get a full piece crispy – part or half stayed floppy – but I’m chalking that up more to user error than a structural integrity problem.

This bacon also didn’t have an overtly bacon-y smell. You know the one I mean – it’s the one that the Beyond Meat products have. The one that’s a taaad too close to the real thing for comfort?

You definitely won’t fool any non-vegans into believing this came from an animal, but it should definitely satisfy your vegan craving without issue!
