Bacon cannot be eaten raw. In fact, bacon are pre-cooked during processing. Then it needs a little frying or grilling before serving. It can be eaten as is, as viand, as replacement for or addition to hamburger patties, as ingredient of spread, as hotdog barbecue wrap and many more.
During ancient time, people used to eat raw meat but learned to cooked it after the discovery of fire (according to history). History will never be reverted back because raw meat sucks! I am sure that cats and dogs will also cook meat foods if they can.
Another wacky edible from ThinkGeek, an edible raw bacon. These product makes eating of raw bacon possible. It is good for bullying or scaring your friends.
I wonder how it tastes like!
This gummy bacon is made of sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, pectin, water, sorbitol, malic acid, citric acid, monosodium citrate, artificial straberry flavor, titanum dioxide, red 40, blue 1, yellow 5 and potassium sorbate. Based on these ingredients, I can say that it is similar to fruit leathers.
