Have you been wondering why more restaurants are giving you more bacon options? Its because bacon and pork prices in the US are at an all time low. If you are wondering why that is according to Fox47, and Bloomberg its because of our trade war with China and US meat producers have a supply that isn't getting shipped anymore so we have the excess. According to Bloomberg the price of pork was $65.61 per pound but that price is dropping everyday so it might be lower and that means you can buy more!

McDonald's has a new bacon menu and putting bacon on everything, including fries (which makes its sooooooo much better). Also Wendy's is bringing back their Baconator sandwich soon because of the bacon supply being at a high. Expect to see more bacon infused or bacon related food items in restaurants soon as our bacon supply won't be getting shipped anytime soon as the US-China trade war continues.
