    It depends if it’s thick cut I like it a little chewy as if it’s completely crispy and thick it’s too hard
    If it’s thinner I can handle more crispy

    There's no such thing as bad bacon.

    It depends if you consider "turkey bacon" to be bacon or not. If it is, then yes, there is bad bacon.

    On something or in something, crispy. It's there for the texture and the crunch and the salt probably. Bacon cheeseburger, or breakfast burrito, or a salad, for example. However, tree bark is non-edible, so don't over-cook it.
    By itself, chewy. That includes as a side for breakfast. The best this way is thick sliced, in a cast iron skillet over a campfire at 6:00 am around the third week of June, when on a two-week vacation. Just get some color on it, still a hint of pink, definitely floppy when you pick it up with a fork. You don't give it time to cool to the touch, you eat it quick.

    I was informed by a waitress in rural Arkansas that "limpy" bacon is the opposite of crispy.
    I voted chewy, but mean limpy.

    And if this was covered less than a month ago....it's bacon!
    Here in Iowa meat processing plants are closing because of the virus. Enjoy your bacon now while you can.

    Bacon is meat shaped like a ticket to the grave.

    (That being said, I like it just this side of crunchy - and prefer it room temperature !)

    Crispy fat, chewy meat.... and it has to be shallow fried and streaky.
