Based on some fantastic feedback from @ryansnyder I’ve made a few updates to the Bacon Rating System.

The first addition is the “Value per Pound” for bacon. This was inspired by wine reviewers; they often give you a value-per-bottle so you know if you’re getting a good “value” for your money.

Also, I’ve added the “Shrinkage” component to the Bacon Rating System and this is one of the seven factors that effect the 5-star rating. Now, this isn’t shrinkage in the George Costanza-went-to-the-ocean-in-Seinfeld sense (although there are similarities there). Shrinkage tells you how much smaller the bacon got from being in the package to getting to your plate. There is always going to be some shrinkage with any kind of bacon but the more a bacon shrinks, the more the odds are that the bacon has a higher water content which is not good for the bacon connoisseur. Low scores mean it shrank too much and higher scores mean it shrank at an acceptable rate.

I’ll be going back and tweaking a few of the earlier ratings to take this into account.
