A jump in bacon prices is making Muskokans sizzle this summer.

According to Statistics Canada, the average price for a pack of bacon is now sitting around seven dollars.

The price jumped up by nine per cent from the beginning of the year.

Moose FM went to the streets to find out if you’re willing to keep up your bacon habit despite the cost.

A Financial Post article suggests the major factor in rising bacon prices is the jump in demand for the salty breakfast treat.
