    Canadian bacon is a type of smoked meat, not a default of bacon in Canada.
    Here in Brasil we call it "lombo canadense defumado" as it use the loin. It's like a "smoked loin Canadian style".

    All of these tests are quite easy to guess based on looks. I always get all of them right in a matter of seconds. However I do not know the backgrund information like they do, which I guess makes them experts in a way.

    Excellent series, only issue I have is that he says the UK bacon took the best of American and Canadian. We did bacon first so...

      +komoOoT nope its real, the art doesnt have the digital cartoon png look to it, and the straight lines are a really tiny bit wiggly like a hand drawing. And the lighting and the camera focus matches the guys face. And i can tell it doesnt have a sharp or blurry outline like if you key out an image would have or a little green reflection on his face. The art is to die for.

    Not to be "that guy", but as a Canadian I wouldn't have called either of those "Canadian Bacon"... To me Canadian Bacon is Peameal Bacon, no other bacons compare. "A" was at least close, but calling "B" Canadian Bacon was an abomination... I'd have a hard time even calling that "meat" lol...

    Australian bacon is like the English bacon except it keeps the full piece of streaky bacon instead of cutting it in half. Each piece is huge. The even leave the rind on so you can make tiny pieces of crackling to have with your breakfast.

    If you look at Turkey bacon B, the fact that it had less process, a more meat like look almost like a ham, I would've definitely guessed that over A which looked emulsified. Even going with the real smoke as he said, B would have been pretty obvious as more expensive just using similar logic to the first bacon.

    Enjoyed the video, some good information. BUT...that is NOT Canadian bacon, which is called "peameal back bacon." Look it up, watch some videos. Not only that, it's been sliced too thin here and is way overcooked. Too bad he keeps calling it "traditional" Canadian bacon. Nonsense. Not even close.
