Before coming to the UK, I used to absolutely hate bacon. It was mostly because of the smell, but also because of the high fat content. I know that the smell and crunchiness of American bacon is the stuff of legends and many people love it, but I personally hated it because of those reasons.
Now I love bacon, but with one major difference. I love British bacon, which is cut from a different cut of meat and is much less fatty. On the downside, it's almost impossible to make it crispy, but the less-fatty benefit far outweigh the lack of crispiness. Granted, I can still get streaky (American style) bacon in British stores, and those few times I got it felt as if they were also less fatty, but I don't get that type (from either country) often enough to really compare them.
I will really miss British bacon and I really hope I'll be able to find it in the USA.
