OK. I’ll admit that I have consumed my fair share of bacon over the course of my life. However, I’m a little frightened to learn that the five major metros in my home state are in the top ten DMA’s for bacon purchases.
According to MRI, here’s the top 10 DMAs for adults who used bacon or breakfast strips in the last six months:
1 Chattanooga, Tenn.
2 Mobile, Ala./ Pensacola (Ft. Walton Beach), Fla.
3 Tri-Cities, Tenn./ Va.
4 Louisville, Ky.
5 Birmingham (Anniston and Tuscaloosa), Ala.
6 Jackson, Miss.
7 Knoxville, Tenn.
8 Huntsville/ Decatur (Florence), Ala.
9 Nashville, Tenn.
10 Memphis, Tenn.

Apparently, Chattanooga now holds the distinction of being the nation’s cleanest city, and the porkiest.
