Is there a Butcher still slicing bacon in Wanganui?

Vernon Neighbourly Lead from Whanganui

I am becoming disenchanted and disgruntled with the thickness of bacon being offered for sale here in Wanganui. The last batch of Bacon sliced, vacuum packed by the producer and marketed by Countdown was so thin that any tendency for it to stick to the pan when cooking caused it to tear which resulted in the entire serving appearing on the plate as shredded bacon

In the "good old days," when I was younger, easy on the eye, had energy and hair, I could ask the seller to slice for me, 10 slices of bacon , or many other types of meat, tongue, corned beef, beef etc with their slicer set on 5 or whatever number my fancy desired.
Nowadays I can not find a single purveyer of bacon in Wanganui who actually slices bacon. Countdown, New World, Pak n Save, all have theirs arriving either presliced and in bulk for placement in the Deli cabinet or presliced and vacuum packed for self selection from the chillers. The Mad butcher didn't even have bacon in stock !
Labour saving no doubt but a killer for customer choice.

SO, back to the question, is there a retailer selling bacon sliced to a thickness requested by the customer?

Poll: Is having Americarna and Ben Harper on the same night a good thing?

Blanton Smith Reporter from Taranaki Daily News

Americarna's street cruise and the Ben Harper concert at the Bowl of Brooklands are both happening on Friday night. Is it a good thing or bad thing to have so many people in the city?

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means thereโ€™s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. Weโ€™re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what theyโ€™re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.
