I thought some folks might be interested in this. There *might* be  
close to period in recipe/style since they say the company has been in  
bussiness since the 16th C. Sorry for the missing letter in each line  
of the forwarded message. That's the way it got to me.

I'm not sure what makes these "bangers" and bacon different, although  
the bacon on their webpage, http://www.balsonbutchers.com/ sure  
doesn't look like the American "streaky" bacon I'm used to.

Unfortunately, I have a Sam's membership, but not a Costco one.
