You have to give one or the other up for the rest of your life. Which do you keep?

I picked butter, but I've given up both without any issues...

Butter cuz you can use other types of oil in its place. Nothing can replace the taste of bacon because its the taste of freedom.

You can use the bacon drippings in place of butter for cooking! (ask your grandmother why her cooking was so good)

Don't really like or eat much of either. Guess I would keep butter for the occasionally cookie.

I don't like butter on my food but its in so many foods, especially baked goods, I think I would rather give up bacon. I don't eat bacon that often anyway. Although it is delicious.

How is it that so many more would keep butter? There are so many alternatives for butter but almost nothing does justice to sub for bacon.

I've been going back and forth on this very important choice. I have to go with butter. It has more range.

Can't do much baking without butter. Or make good sauces. Pretty much a staple in cooking. Bacon is delicious, but I could live without it.

Butter or margarine? Because if it is just butter, then bacon, but if it's both butter and margarine, then butter.

Even though it tastes SO GOOD, I'd choose bacon because butter can be an ingredient in other delicious foods.

I already gave up bacon because my mom told me it was high in cholesterol, and being obese, mine was as high as a 88 year old man. (my doctor said) after losing weight, I don't use much low-fat butter, and I pretty much don't eat bacon :(
