Purchased a 7# Sugardale portion ham. It looked good. But after unwrapping, it was solid fat. I got about 1-1/2 lbs of useable meat, most of that riddled with fat. The only use was for soup, as it would not have fed the family even once had I roasted it whole. Very, very disappointed. I have been buying hams for 50 years, have never seen such a horrible cut.
Hi M, we are sorry to hear you were not satisfied with your most recent Sugardale ham purchase. We would like to gather more information regarding this issue if you would please follow the link below. I hope you remain a loyal Sugardale customer.
CORTLAND, OHIO -- I purchased Sugardale Thick sliced 7/2/ 2015. Open to cook 7/3/2015 for July 4th outdoor picnic, was mostly fat on both ends of bacon. The see through window looked good until I opened package to cook. They are selling by the pound which is 75% fat. Will not be buying Sugardale bacon anymore. Sister had same disappointment. I will be buying from Showcase for now on.
CANTON, OHIO -- Lately, I've been buying "Premium Thick Sliced Bacon" because my Dad is tired of having his bacon cook up to nothing. Being that I only find the Premium brand in only one store... I decided to try the Sugardale Thick Sliced Hickory Smoked Bacon. Why not? Sugardale is a good company. At over $6.00 for the 1.5 pound of bacon, it can't be too bad IF it's as good as the Premium bacon. This morning I opened the Sugardale bacon and peeled off the first slice (See photo)... I could NOT believe it! It was cut so thin it actually fell apart! OK, maybe that was just one piece... so I continue to peel away the bacon slices and one slice after the other were cut exactly the same.
If I wanted the paper thin slices like this I could have gone with the $2.99 per pound brand! This Sugardale Thick sliced bacon can't even compare to Premium's thick sliced bacon! What a rip off... and they package it onto a styrofoam tray so you really can't tell how thick it is cut when you look at it. I'm very disappointed with Sugardale, they usually have good products worth the money you pay but in the case of their Thick sliced bacon... Needless to say, I will be going back to the Premium brand even if it's only sold in one store.
Today, I just received two packs of Sugardale Thick sliced bacon 1 1/2 pounds each as a replacement for the package in which this review was written.
Not only did they send me the bacon, it came in a nice Sugardale styrofoam cooler that I can keep in the back of my car for frozen foods when I go shopping!
Hilary Rossi has gone above and beyond to make sure customer satisfaction was reached.
Thanks Hilary and Sugardale!
