Sliced bacon more expensive than bacon bits?

These people have way too much free time. However, in their "expirement" with bacon bits, they found that 12 slices of bacon were needed to equal three ounces of chopped bacon bits. Here's their cost breakdown:
 PricePackage SizeCooked yieldPrice per cooked oz.Price per slice
Bacon Bits$1.893 oz.3 oz.$0.63$0.31
Raw Bacon$5.9916 oz.4.75 oz$1.30$0.63

Their claim: bacon is priced like diamonds - the larger the size the more expensive?

Here is a page of other such experiments, including How many packets of ketchup in a bottle, and how much is in vegimite?
