I have a relative that actually prefers the goodness of partially hydrogenated soybean oil to the crispy cured pork belly. She would rather sprinkle Bac-O's on a salad with old-fashioned ranch dressing or dump them on a baked potato with butter and sour cream. Has the world gone crazy? Is she alone here? And using Bac-Os because you don't eat meat isn't an acceptable reason. If you are a vegetarian, then you give up your right to eat anything that even remotely tastes like bacon.
